My wife and I first experience in Chicago after checking into our hotel. it was a great experience to get out, hear from our local tour guide Josey (Sorry, am not certain on the name spelling) some of what makes this city unique. We got to see, taste, and experience several venues, which DEFINITELY did NOT disappoint! Josey's enthusiasm, with the help of a few good patrons like ourselves really made this a great first experience to see the city and many of it's landmarks. I HIGHLY recommend this to newcomers and longtime residents alike. The knowledge and information given easily showed there is great history here

This tour is SO MUCH FUN! Our guide Josie was fantastic, and even my out-of-shape 57 year old self handled the biking portion just fine! Highly recommended, whether you have an afternoon to spare getting to see the city by bike, OR even if you're a native and you have friends coming in from out of town/state.

The Bike, Bites, and Brew tour was so much fun!! We had a great group and our tour guide, Josie, was phenomenal! She kept it fun, and also shared a lot of information about Chicago. All of the food we sampled was delicious. We will definitely do this again. Thanks Josie for an amazing tour!

Die Tour ist sehr gelungen, wobei das Erlebnis, der Außenbezirke zu sehen und lokale Spezialitäten zu kosten, im Vordergrund steht, nicht lange Strecken zu radeln. Während der Stops wird mittels eingeübter aber kurzweiliger Anekdoten Geschichtliches zum Besten gegeben. Sehr gelungen.

Such a brilliant tour. Our guides were fantastic and so friendly. The food was great and the sites were even better. The perfect way to see Chicago.
