Chicago Loop Secret Food Tour
US$61.18
Overview
Stroll around the Loop with a guide, discovering Chicago's lively food scene, on this small-group walking tour. Learn about the city's history and culinary heritage from your guide as you stop at favorite local eateries for tastings of four classic dishes. Sample signature bites such as deep-dish pizza.
What to Expect
Make your own way to a centrally located meeting point to join your guide.

Start your food tour by snacking on hearty deep-dish pizza, and learn how Chicago’s pizza differs from others. Continue to a historic spot that serves up dipped Italian beef sandwiches, and then try a Chicago-style hot dog, traditionally accompanied by seven specific toppings (never ketchup). Nibble a savory and sweet “secret food” beloved in the Windy City, and top it off with dessert at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Along the way, stop into a bar that was founded in 1898 and survived the Prohibition era, see some of Chicago's renowned public art, and stroll through Millennium Park to see the famous Cloud Gate sculpture

Ask for Melissa

The Secret Food Tour is worth every penny. Melissa is so knowledgable about Chicago and took us to some places I would have never found on my own. Highly Recommended!

Great Tour!

We did the Chicago Loop Secret Food Tour with Melissa. Melissa is a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about food, architecture, and Chicago's history. The weather was less than perfect, but we still had a wonderful time. I'd highly recommend it.

I don't know either... I'd suggest contacting the company and asking them directly. They may be able to shed some light on it.
