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!

Rory was our tour guide and did a fabulous job showing us around. We discovered so much of Chicago that we wouldn't have on our own and we found out lots of interesting architectural details. My 11 year old son loved it too. would definitely recommend.

Eric was such a kind and generous tour guide. His love for New Orleans and it’s history and culture shined all throughout his tour! I would highly recommend this bike tour!
