*Important Notice*

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Chicago Foodways tours are currently paused through the month of July. We are currently certifying safety practices with all of our vendor partners and monitoring the success of Phase 4 reopening in Illinois. Once we are confident that we can serve you safely and comfortably, our tours will resume.


All tickets purchased in 2020 can be fully refunded up to 2 hours in advance if your travel plans change. If you would like us to notify you of our start date, please give us your contact details.

Please consider helping us out at this time by purchasing gift certificates for any future tour. Our gift certificates never expire and are always valid for a full-price tour, no matter if our prices increase in the future. Thank you and stay safe!

Chicago Foodways Tours

Discover Argyle & Andersonville, two of Chicago’s best neighborhoods, on one tour! Enjoy foods from Vietnam, the Middle East and Sweden.
Our happy clients include corporate meetings, gourmet clubs, active senior groups, family reunions and community fundraisers.
Phyllis has done an excellent job of selecting varied, balanced, delicious fare and presenting just the right amount of non-food stories about the neighborhood. She's personable and professional, an ideal host for an afternoon exploring a new area of the city. Highly recommended!
