We started out sitting at the first restaurant introducing ourselves to the rest of the group. 2 other couples were also using an expired gift certificate and 2 ladies were in town from Florida. We had... More

I consider myself a major foodie, and on every vacation a food tour is the first thing I sign up for. I have done tours in New Orleans, New York, Barcelona and Aspen to name a few. Flight Chicago is the BEST food tour I have ever been on, and I have now done it twice! The interaction with the... More

While visiting Chicago I found this interesting tour on the "175 days to love Chicago" website and was not disappointed! Amber was our tour guide and we couldn't be more pleased! She was attentive, talkative, and gave us the behind the scenes story to each of the restaurants we visited. We did the West End Tour which was a $15... More

Great experience! Three hours, three restaurants, three amazing chefs, three delicious three-course meals. Come hungry, these chefs are not skimping on portions. Monika and Amber are very gracious and warm hostesses. Walking through the neighborhoods while discussing delicious bits is totally fun! FINALLY! A great tour for Chicagoans! Get to know your city's culinary scene in this unusual way. Totally... More

I've always asked myself what goes on behind the scenes of a really great restaurant and our Flight was not only insightful, but downright awesome. The food was outstanding and the conversations that evolved around the table between all of the chefs and the lovely people in our group were unexpected and heartwarming. The vibe at the table and in... More

The actual name of this service is flightdeckchicago. It might seem pricey but you have three hours of wonderful food, drink and small-group exploration of exciting restaurants and their chefs/key staff. Go hungry for all 3, and not worrying about balanced food groups. the restaurants chosen for our tour were within walking distance of each other, each very different from... More

We had the pleasure and culinary treat to go with Amber on her Bucktown flight. Departure was on time and arrival was on time...though we could have stayed, Amber's contacts and knowledge of the Chicago Restaurant world is exceptional and insightful. Then,,, you get the chance to tour the restaurants...talk shop with the Chefs and then sample their drink/food.... Great... More
