Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 03, 2019 Chicago By: Lynnell T
The food was good and the stories were interesting, but the tour got off to a bad start. We spent 45 minutes on the sidewalk outside the restaurant checking in. The group was too large for this kind of experience. It was overpriced for what it was.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Lynnell, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience. Though I'm glad you found the tour enjoyable, I'm disappointed to hear it started off on the wrong note. I did reach out to our tour partner regarding the delay, and unfortunately they weren't able to provide me with any clarification. I am sorry you felt the tour overpriced - for tours such as this, the price not only covers the cost of the food but the services of the guide and the reserved spots at the restaurants. However, I know this fell a bit short of expectations - if you ever wanted to give us another try, I've placed a $10 voucher in your account that you can use towards another great experience! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.  Best, Inah

Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Aug 07, 2019 Chicago By: Kendra D
Overall good experience except I upgraded to the campaign brunch and the cruise said that they don't offer that package. Thankfully after pestering the manager we got campaign, but the manger was pretty obviously annoyed and rude. Other than that, food was good and views were great.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi there Kendra, Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know!  Recently, our partners have updated their cruises, and it seems that the cruise you were on was one of the first to transition. We are sorry that there was a difficulty in getting the champagne. So happy that despite the trouble, you were able to enjoy your bubbly and your time on the water!  Hooray! Very excited that the food was delicious, and the views stellar!  We have placed a $25.00 credit in your Cloud 9 Living account for future use. We look forward to having you out on another Cloud 9 Living experience soon!  Very Best, Sophia

Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Jul 15, 2019 Chicago By: Angela H
It was a beautiful day. The food was excellent and the staff was exceptional, ensuring that we had a wonderful experience.
Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Jul 03, 2019 Chicago By: Shaina M
It was a good time, but a little confusing since it was called a "champagne brunch" and no one was served champagne upon boarding or received any champagne complimentary (until we asked at the end and the server was kind enough to bring us some). The cocktail, wine and beer, as one would guess were pretty outrageous ($18 for a standard bloody mary), but the food was decent and overall we had a nice time sitting on the observation deck for most of the cruise.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi there Shaina,  Thanks so much sharing! Guests should certainly receive a glass of champagne when boarding. We understand that the crew may have been filling glasses or assisting other guests, and weren't able to provide the champagne upon boarding. Of course, $18.00 is a steep price, even for New York City! There are however, other drink options including wine and beer, for around $6-10. We do understand that expectations were not met, and are truly so sorry.  We are so happy that despite the champagne delay, you were able to take in the city's breathtaking views, enjoy tasty food, and had a good time overall! We have gone ahead and placed a value of $30.00 into your account for future use. Looking forward to getting you out on the water again soon!  Very Best,  Sophia
Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet May 15, 2019 Chicago By: Carol W
The food and the service was excellent. The ship was in beautiful condition, clean and very cheery. The reason we are giving it four stars is because we found ourselves in very uncomfortable small chairs; my husband and I are quite tall. The crowd was a young one, we are seniors and when we got on the boat we were quite happy with the music, Mellow and easy on the ears. However, as the room began to fill the noise level increased and the music was, to our ears anyway, difficult to listen to. However, the situation was saved when we discovered the second level, an empty banquet room with a comfortable sofa from which to enjoy the view. The staff was lovely and even though we were told that level was closed, the steward made an exception and allowed us to sit there, and a stewardess came up to ask if we would like water or anything to drink. From then on we had quite a nice experience. We very much appreciate the fact that Cloud Nine accepted an October cancellation because of a death in the family and rebooked us for May. An excellent company, thank you.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hello, Carol, We appreciate you & your husband just as much! Thank you for such kind words. We appreciate the honest feedback, and are happy to share your note on chairs. We want to make sure that we are providing a 5-Star experience! You're an excellent customer & we were more than happy to work with you. We hope to work together again, Cheers! Kasia

Pizza & Cocktails Tour Chicago Gourmet Feb 22, 2019 Chicago By: Barbara B
We had a blast on this tour! Johnathan was very informative and fun as our tour guide. He not only told us all about pizza, but, about the city as well. We visited three pizzerias and had two different types of pizza at each. All were excellent. I definitely recommend this tour whether you are visiting the city or are native to Chicago.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for taking the time to write in about your experience, it definitely sounds like you had a great time! I'll be sure to pass on your compliments to Jonathan, and then maybe look at tickets to Chicago, because you made it sound so fun (: Cheers, Inah
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jan 22, 2019 Chicago By: Mary H
We had so much fun on this tour! Danny, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and personable. There was a great choice of pizza places...not your big name chains. The pizza was amazing...some of the best pizza we've had! The ride to each place provided a view of the city along with some history and information about each neighborhood. This tour is a must do!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Lisa, Thank you so very much for your kind words! I'll be sure to pass your compliments on to Danny. I know our tour guides take a lot of pride in showing their guests off-the-beaten-path spots and imparting their knowledge about the city. Cheers to great pizza and new Chicago memories! Warm Regards, Inah
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jan 22, 2019 Chicago By: Hope S

Great tour! I thought the nature of the tour would cause it to be more directed at tourists, but the places and info are interesting to Chicago residents as well.
Response from Cloud 9 Living

Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Oct 12, 2018 Chicago By: Emily R
This was so much more than a food tour! We visited specialty shops and learned about the history of Old Town and Gold Coast. Delaney was an amazing guide - very knowledgeable! We had fun, learned a lot, and left pleasantly full :) I highly recommend Chicago Food Planet and this tour!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Emily, I'm so happy to hear that we were able to send you out on such a great experience! I'll be sure to pass your compliments on to Delaney. A little history, a delicious food, how can it not be fun, right? Cheers, Inah
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Oct 12, 2018 Chicago By: Robert T
What a unique tour! Our tour guide, Delaney, took us to a variety of different Chicago staples around River North and Old Towne. We ate deep dish and learned Lou Malnati’s history, drank some tea and learned about its history and growth process as well. We then had some falafel, followed by spices in this awesome spice shop, followed y some toffee fudge at a fudge shop, and finishing off with some Wisconsin cheese curds at a pub. Delaney was very knowledgeable about all the stops, as well as the history surrounding the area we walked through during the tour.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Robert, My mouth is watering just reading your wonderful descriptions, can't imagine what it must have been like actually eating all this food! Thank you for your kind words, I'm glad we were able to send you out on such a great experience. Cheers, Inah
Bikes, Bites, and Brews Tour - West Side Route Chicago Gourmet Oct 12, 2018 Chicago By: Amanda W
Our tour with Bobby's Bike Hike was amazing! It wasn't the most optimal weather, but still a great time -- Courtney was enthusiastic, informative, & fun. When booking another tour, I will try to do ones that she leads. The places we stopped were great as well -- my favorite being the chocolate shop at the end! I bought a scotcharoo that was TO DIE FOR. SO GOOD.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Amanda, I know you were originally looking to take another tour and I'm happy to hear that we were able to send you out on an experience just as great, even though Mother Nature wasn't being cooperative. I'll be sure to pass your kind words along to Courtney! Nothing like a nice chocolate treat at the end of a bike ride right? Cheers, Inah

Prohibition Cocktail Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Tina S
The Prohibition tour is fantastic! Learning about the history of the bars, the bootleggers, and the gansters is so fascinating! Sidney the tour guide is amazing with her wealth of knowledge! She was so funny and made the trip amazing! The bars they chose to visit are unique, cool, and did a great job accommodating our large group. Highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed! The best weekend we’ve had in Chicago!

Absolutely fun and informational. Sydney was amazing, and the drinks were great!
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Sarah C
The tour exceeded our expectations. We weren't expecting to learn as much as we did about the history of Chinatown and the food we were sampling. The tour visits old Chinatown, new Chinatown and Ping Tom Memorial Park. It was fun to get to walk a bit and explore more than one area. The food was plentiful and featured a wide array. Jim, our guide, was great!
Little India Food & Culture Walking Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Erin O
This was an amazing tour! Such a unique experience, and an opportunity to get to know a new area of Chicago. Our tour guide was phenomenal! We tasted some absolutely delicious foods, tried on traditional Indian clothing, visited a Hindu temple and even got henna tattoos. A wonderful tour that we will be recommending to others!!!
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Anne S
The tour was tasty and interesting. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. We had 6 stops that we’re lots of fun. Enjoyed it all. The last stop had a warm homemade dessert which was good because the sandwich offering, although good, wasn’t great. I was surprised they used store bought pita with the very tasty falafel. The ending location ,according to our tickets wasn’t accurate but we weren’t far off.
Prohibition Cocktail Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: John P
I enjoyed the four visits and the historical knowledge provided by the guide was excellent. However, I must share my personal opinion about her use of "adult language." I have been an adult since long before Sydney was even a glimmer in her parents' eyes. I don't find it necessary to use vulgar language (the correct term for the language she used throughout) to make my point. Use of this style language has become all to common in today's society and is just further evidence of our loss of civility between human beings.
Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Ken K
The cruise was good but your instructions related to dress for men is way off base. There was not a sport coat in sight----obviously, the cruise officials do not police their own policies ----- we saw tee shirts, shorts, etc. Revise your instructions so that you do not inconvenience guests. Business Casual does not include sport coats for men!
Little India Food & Culture Walking Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 28, 2018 Chicago By: Caden P
This tour was great and the food was delicious! Mohammad was extremely personable and was willing to answer any questions we had. His life experiences really put a personal touch on the tour and made it easy to relate to him. I've been so interested in the Indian culture, so this was the perfect tour for my visit to Chicago. You can really tell that Mohammed wants to educate people about this great niche in Chicago, but also tell about the country of India itself. He really taught me a lot of new information and inspired me to continue to learn about this great culture! I will definitely be bringing more people back to the tour and hope to even explore Little India more extensively in the future!

Prohibition Cocktail Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 04, 2018 Chicago By: Neil S
Came with my wife as a birthday celebration. We are both interested in Chicago history and fine cocktails, and both aspects were well covered. The Green Door was probably the best stop on the tour, since it has a true speakeasy that still operates. We will definitely bring friends there. My only regret was there was not time to include the Green Mill on the tour too (too far north). The tour guide was very personable and well versed, and the other tour-ists were friendly. A fun time all around.
Little India Food & Culture Walking Tour Chicago Gourmet May 07, 2018 Chicago By: Dantee A
Calling all Food Geeks: The best Chicago History and Food Culture tour of Devon Ave. Mohammad is an absolutely amazing guy! His personal history with growing up in Devon Avenue is very unique. He gives a great background on how Devon started and gives you an insight on where it's heading. The tour starts with hearty snacks and continues at shops, boutiques, and more restaurants! You are going to get the whole package in this tour. If you'd like to eat some more, he's willing to travel with you to other restaurants after the tour. If we didn't have a prior commitment, I would have taken him up on his offer! This is great for a groups for couples looking to explore outside of downtown Chicago. You can literally spend a whole day here. I appreciate the dialogue that he starts about the food that you are about the eat - how was it made? Where did it come from? Is it really Indian? Super informative for food geeks like me!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Dantee, Thank you so much for taking the time to write in! I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful time! I will be sure to pass along your kind words to Mohammad- it will make his day :)  Be sure to let me know if you ever want to get out on another adventure! Cheers! Jennifer 
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 08, 2017 Chicago By: Amy L
Very interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable! I thought we were experiencing 5 different places (that's what the info said when I purchased it) and we only visited 4. A little disappointed with that, otherwise we enjoyed the cultural experience.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 07, 2017 Chicago By: John W
We had a blast on this tour. We have done a few other Chicago tours in the past, which have been great, but this one definitely stood out. Cat, our guide, was super nice and so much fun. We learned something new at every stop we made... and all the food we sampled was AMAZING. We would do this tour again for sure!
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 25, 2017 Chicago By: Bob F
Received our pizza tour experience as a Christmas gift. My wife and I had a great time. Danny, our tour guide, was great. If you love pizza, this is the tour for you. We thought that we would be going to some of the "famous named" pizza places. This tour takes you to the lesser known neighborhood spots. We went to 4 different places, and had 4 different styles of pizza. An added bonus is that the tour also gives you great views of Chicago and the different neighborhoods. This tour is a must see and do!!
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 14, 2017 Chicago By: VILMA B
First of all, please be sure you keep Philip as a tour guide. He did an excellent job. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 12-year-old girls. He managed to keep all of us interested in the information he shared with us. The mix of eating food samples at the varied restaurants and walking was perfect. The tour was very informative of the different foods, the neighborhood and the culture. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Our food tour in Chicago by far exceeded our expectations! Our guide was wonderful; he kept us moving but we never felt rushed. We learned a lot at each of our stops and on the walk from place to place. The "samples" from the restaurants and shops were very generous. We did not leave hungry! We would definitely recommend it to others and would love to take another tour sometime in the future.

We loved our tour and our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny, easy-going, and a lot of fun to hang out with for the afternoon. We loved that we not only learned about pizza but also about Chicago. I lived in Chicago for 5 years and loved actually learning about the pizza I so often enjoyed. Great tour - 5 star all the way! Thanks for the great experience!
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 17, 2016 Chicago By: Jessica W
Pizza was great and our tour guide was awesome! I really enjoyed him. He was so funny and knowledgeable about our city. My only complaint is the amount of profanity he used, that was a little bummer, but other than that I enjoyed my experience.
Bikes, Bites, and Brews Tour - North Side Route Chicago Gourmet Aug 10, 2016 Chicago By: Karen L
It was good, although 13 miles might be a bit much for two hours. Could use a little more food provided given that it was over the lunch hour. And perhaps a more leisurely pace.
Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Jul 18, 2016 Chicago By: Donna F
We enjoyed a Gourmet Lunch Cruise on The Odyssey II. The ship was beautiful. Very upscale dining. The wait staff and Captain were all very friendly and personable. Our waitress went out of her way to make our dining experience comfortable and enjoyable. We liked that she would find us anywhere on the ship to make sure we had everything we needed to make this a pleasant experience. The music choices was very nice. If seemed to fit all age groups and ethnicities. The food was done perfectly. Little to no waiting for anything at any time. One of the best customer services I've ever experienced. Thanks for an enjoyable time.

Rachel was informative and high energy. She made every attempt to engage the entire group and was always positive. Other than it being a warm and humid summer afternoon, it was a delightful experience. My companion requires the use of a wheelchair. Two locations needed to be adapted but worked fine.

Hanah was amazing!!!! I wasn't expecting all the information about the culture, the neighborhood, the people, the architecture, etc. It was a very interesting tour!! I've told several people about the tours already, and am planning on going on the others when I find time. Awesome day outing, even for Chicagoans who THINK they know their city!!!
Prohibition Cocktail Tour Chicago Gourmet Oct 07, 2015 Chicago By: Debra C
I felt the price for the experience was expensive. The price included the guide and a bus ride to 3 bars within a 3 mile radius. A ride back to where we started and where our car was parked was not provided. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the Prohibition, but I felt she did not do anything to get the group to get to know each other. Everyone just minded their own business and sat with the party they came with. I think it would have been more fun if she (Sydney) would have got the group talking to each other. She was young (just turned 21) so maybe she just needed more experience working with a group of people. I was amazed at her speaking ability. She really was a good speaker, but gave us a lot of information which was hard to process after a few drinks. The information was interesting but I got lost at times because of the vast amount. With a few changes, I think it would be a really fun experience.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 21, 2015 Chicago By: Pat G
The whole food walking tour was excellent. Since we love tasting different foods, this tour was very enjoyable for both me and my husband. Our guide, Sadie, was very knowledgeable about the Old Town/Gold Coast area. Although I was raised in that area for ten years of my life, Sadie pointed out some things that I did not know about. To sum it up, I would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks, Sadie!!

Overall experience was good. I was not a fan of the sushi place nor the bakery. The walk back to Lou Malnati's seemed too long.
Little India Food & Culture Walking Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 16, 2015 Chicago By: Chris R
My husband and I loved this tour. We would recommend this to anyone who likes Indian cuisine and is interested in learning more about the culture. Mohammad had so much knowledge to share, so I felt like we learned a lot of interesting tidbits. It was a very fun experience.

Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Aug 26, 2015 Chicago By: Barbara C
Great experience. The customer service on this cruise was the best I've ever had (& I've sailed to England on the Queen Mary 2). Every single person was friendly, helpful, and made it a very pleasant experience. The food was good, too. I was especially pleased when I heard a guest ask the carving fellow if they had bbq sauce. There was another worker putting fresh eggs in the other line and he overheard and said, "I'll get that for you, where are you sitting?" He didn't have to be so courteous -- many who work with the public don't act like that. I complimented him then and am doing so now. We'd recommend this to anyone visiting Chicago.

It was an excellent opportunity to learn more about authentic Chinese food. We tried a few delicious things that we never had before. Our instructor was great with explaining all details about food, Chinese traditions, and history of Chicago's China Town. I would highly recommend this tour.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 07, 2015 Chicago By: Katelyn K
Allie was amazing! She was energetic and genuine. She appeared to really enjoy what she was doing, and it helped my husband and I really loosen up and enjoy the experience. I love the city of Chicago, but I love the food of Chicago even more!!!!
Prohibition Cocktail Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 06, 2015 Chicago By: Debra V
While it was acknowledged that there may be profanity used throughout the tour, I truly did not feel it was necessary nor did enhance the experience in anyway. Also, the 21-year-old guide just didn't pull off the use of the profanity with much finesse, so why bother.

Hands down BEST tour I've ever been on. Gabe was an incredible tour guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly and definitely went the extra mile to make sure everyone was informed, entertained, & enjoying their time on the tour. The equipment provided was in excellent condition. Already planning a subsequent trip with more friends for this fall!

Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Apr 27, 2015 Chicago By: Victoria L
My husband and I were happy with the tour and felt the programmed food and store stops provided an interesting variety. When food was served, portions were satisfying. We also enjoyed the additional information on the neighborhood and the historical information that was given on landmarks. Angie, our guide seemed knowledgeable and we enjoyed her energy and friendliness.

Overall, we had an excellent time on our Chicago food tour! The tour guides were great. The restaurants were all very good and very unique. No complaints. :)

We went on this tour as part of a girls weekend in Chicago. It was so much fun. The two guides were fantastic. So knowledgeable and friendly. Great neighborhood stops and lots of interesting information. I would highly recommend this tour!
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Feb 17, 2015 Chicago By: Carol B
The pizzas were varied and wonderful. Jonathan was a fabulous guide, who shared lots of interesting history about pizza and Chicago along the way. We look forward to doing this tour again with out-of-town visitors.
Pizza & Cocktails Tour Chicago Gourmet Feb 02, 2015 Chicago By: Cylvia G
On our experience, all went well but I didn't like or appreciate the fact that they absolutely didn't ask for ID at anytime during the tour at all. Anyone (even myself) could have gone, especially someone who didn't pay, which I didn't like or appreciate. That really need to change or correct that, as in yesterday. The group was great. The guide was great. We did karaoke on our tour and had a blast! We enjoyed our pizza and cocktail tour. So thank you for a nice experience, it was for my husband whose birthday was the following Monday.

The Prohibition Tour was really awesome. Our tour guide, Jonathan, was really knowledgeable.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Nov 19, 2014 Chicago By: Peta D
I had a great time on the Walking Food Tour on Saturday with Jessica. Jessica was very friendly and engaging and fantastic representative for your company. My only feedback would be that at the oil shop I would have preferred to try some of the olive oils without vinegars mixed into them, maybe less information at the tea shop, and I would have liked a little more information about the origin of some of the foods - where they are produced locally (if that was possible). I also think that many people that are interested in food tours would be interested in market locations around Chicago and so maybe could be included in your maps. Maybe another tour idea for a Saturday morning?

Spent our 15th anniversary celebration with Gabe. He did a fabulous job with Bikes, Bites and Brew tour despite the November wind and chill. Cloud 9 Living went above and beyond notifying the bakery of our anniversary. Swirlz made us special cupcakes for the occasion! Great tour, great guide, great fun!

Everything was fine except that I think you should consider adjusting the order of things - as much as I was intrigued by the Oil and Vinegar shop, I was not interested in tasting olive oil immediately after a visit to the Fudge Pot!

Overall a pleasant and fun experience. It is great for Chicago area residents as well as tourists.

Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 02, 2014 Chicago By: Joseph H
We went on the walking tour of Chicago's Chinatown. Although we had been to the area numerous times before (we're from Chicago), the tour gave us a completely new perspective of the area and of the food that's available there. It's great to discover new and wonderful aspects of a place you thought you already knew.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 02, 2014 Chicago By: Scott P
Absolutely fabulous! Fun, informative, and an overall great time.
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 21, 2014 Chicago By: Neil M
Fabulous balance between history and food! We really appreciated learning true Chinese cuisine... both how to order and how to enjoy the food following Chinese family customs.
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 21, 2014 Chicago By: Jamie H
The tour was excellent! A great overview of Chinatown and the Chinese culture as well as good food! our tour guide, Lisa did a wonderful job! We would totally recommend this tour and Cloud 9 to anyone! Thanks for a good time! Jamie and Don Holben
Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Aug 18, 2014 Chicago By: Fred B
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing meal and cruise. The only complication was a change in the boarding & departure time by 1 hour. The meal was very good, as was the service. We plan on recommending it to others and would consider doing it again.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 04, 2014 Chicago By: Jessica H
The Chicago Food Planet Tour was great. We got to sample not just foods but drinks, spices and oils. Our guide also shared a lot of historical information while we walked. It also gave us a chance to get to know a part of Chicago we hadn't visited before.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 14, 2014 Chicago By: Margaret S
My husband and I received the food walking tour of the Gold Coast and Old Town in Chicago as a gift from our sons for our 25th anniversary. We don't get out that often so this was an adventure for us. We both absolutely loved the experience! Our tour guide was excellent, very nice, very informative and was fun to talk to. She really made the experience special. We have already talked about giving this experience to other members of our family.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 23, 2014 Chicago By: Janann S

Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 17, 2014 Chicago By: Anna K
I enjoyed the Chicago Pizza Tour. Something to consider going forward, Some guests may only eat cheese pizza. The current structure of the tour does not allow them to ask for cheese as an alternative to what has been ordered. Maybe make an announcement at the beginning of the tour thta should you prefer cheese only it is available.

Awesome trip!
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 12, 2014 Chicago By: Kathy L
We had a beautiful day to walk around Gold Coast and Old Town neighborhoods. Our guide, Jackie, was knowledgeable and fun. I thought the information we received at the tea shop, and spice house was great. We used our coupons at the spice house and olive oil stores. I will recommend these tours to my friends and may try the Lincoln Park tour in the future!

We loved Sadie. She is perfect for this job. Even though we arevery familiar with this part of Chicago, there is always something to learn and we learned so many fun facts and some history we did not even know about. The variety of stops along the way was just the perfect mix. We had a wonderful day and have recommended this to friends already. Per your question below, you may post my comments with my first name only.

Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet May 21, 2014 Chicago By: Lisa C
my Husband grew up in Chicago and was not very optimistic about going on this tour with me. Just 10 minutes into the tour he said " what a great tour, I love it!" By the end of the tour we were already planning our next food tour with food planet! We loved the history. Not only of the food but of the Chinese people and of Chicago. Our guide's name was Carlin and she did a fabulous job! Thank you for a great time!

Let me start by saying this was my first of many food tours! Our guide was absolutely sure of our food restrictions. She did a great job pointing out interesting facts about the city and each place we visited. There were seven stops on our tour, each stop is more than just a sample it is an experience! I highly recommend. Go, go now!
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jan 17, 2014 Chicago By: Lois W
The weather was beautiful, and I enjoyed walking in the areas for our tour. It was great that our host included architectural highlights and a little history along the way. Our last stop was the bakery. By this time, we all were tired, and it would have been nice to have been able to sit down to enjoy our bakery item. At the time we were there, there were no patrons and there were plenty of places to sit. I don't know what the problem was, but we were told explicitly not to sit down!! Therefore, my satisfaction rating was a "7".
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 30, 2013 Chicago By: Neal I
Thoroughly delightful experience. A Magnificent day in Chicago, the Moon Festival in Chinatown, and a very well-designed tour combined for an enchanting trip. All of the restaurants provided impeccable service with incredible food. And our guide simply crowned the event with her warm, friendly charm; seasoned with delightful history and facts. This was a true EXPERIENCE of Chicago's Chinatown.

Loved the combination of the city's buildings with the guidance.

Interesting tour of the area and I learned new information about some foods. Disappointing for the price and the amount of tastings. Did not walk away with a great feel for the food specialties of Chicago.
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 19, 2013 Chicago By: Leslie K
Excellent way to learn about Chicago history along with the background on pizza families and the art of this dining phenomenon. Jonathan was an excellent tour guide!
Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Sep 11, 2013 Chicago By: Michael G
The experience was, on a whole, positive. We did the Gourmet Lunch Cruise on the Odyssey in Chicago and there was only one negative. Some of the tables on the boat were window tables, and we were told that their online booking site gave you the ability to specially request a window table. I did not have that option booking through Cloud 9 Living, so we had to sit at a table in the middle of the boat with a limited window view. It did not ruin the experience, but it definitely was a disappointment and would suggest you find a way to match your booking options with those offered by the service provider.
Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise Chicago Gourmet Sep 11, 2013 Chicago By: Nicoletta E
It was great; my only suggestion would be to add an extra hour to the trip. With lunch included, there is not much time left to spend on the deck and enjoy the Chicago skyline.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 19, 2013 Chicago By: Erica H
My husband and I received a gift certifictate for the tour. We were expecting to be the only Chicagoans, but, to our suprise, the majority of the tour was filled with locals. Especially compared to other tours that we have been on in Chicago, we found our tour guide (Angie?) to be very knowledgable and excited to share the tidbits of historical info. She kept the tour in line and organized without being pushy. Although we are from the area, we learned quite a bit about both the neighborhoods and the restaurants. Although we liked the tea shop and the gentleman who spoke to us there, we felt that stop was slightly unnecessary as it's not really food and we don't associate it with Chicago or the neighborhood. My husband was slightly disappointed with the level of food, but I was pleasantly full. The level of walking was perfect. Overall, we had a great time, and I would recommend the tour to others.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 19, 2013 Chicago By: Gwen W
The food tour of Old Town and the Gold Coast was a great experience and Colleen, our tour guide was wonderful. She really knew her subject matter and was fun to spend the afternoon with. We would highly recommend the tour to anyone.
Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 19, 2013 Chicago By: Kyle O
I booked this five restaurant tour of Chicago's Chinatown for me and my fifteen year old cousin visiting from Charlotte NC. He is very into food and was able to experience something entirely different from in Charlotte. He was talking about it for months before he got here and it lived up to out expectations. Our guide, Jessica went out of her way to engage Philip about his interests, and how he felt the food and his life and interests (he was the youngest on the tour). I was impressed with her knowledge and her engagment with the tour participants and the restauranteurs. Kyle Osburn
Bikes, Bites, and Brews Tour - North Side Route Chicago Gourmet Aug 19, 2013 Chicago By: Shannon K
It was so refreshing to take part in something that allowed us to be tourists for the day and to learn about some hidden gems in Chicago! We did it as an anniversary celebration and it was awesome to try something new. I wouldn't be surprised if we do our own "Bikes, Bites and Brews tours" sampling new foods and drinks around this great city, feeling inspired!

Martha, our tour guide, was excellent. Well-versed in Chicago history, great fun and knew a lot about all the food stops. Would highly recommend this tour.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Nov 19, 2012 Chicago By: Margaret W
Jess was excellent as a guide. The bakery was last on the tour and my least favorite. It was crowded and wasn't exceptional for being on a food tour. Unlike the other stops, the information was about the owner vs. the food. I felt rushed here, like we just went in to eat, standing up at that. I would suggest one excellent pastry that is representative of Chicago.

Chinatown Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Oct 08, 2012 Chicago By: Elizabeth B
A great way to see a city! I was born and raised in Chicago, but had only been to Chinatown a few times. This was the perfect way to learn about a new part of the city I live in. Best part is that I now feel comfortable going back!

Bikes, Bites, and Brews Tour - North Side Route Chicago Gourmet Aug 23, 2012 Chicago By: Kathia G
Refreshing look at the city not just for tourists. I booked this tour as an anniversary present for myself and boyfriend (he is from Chicago) and he couldn't stop saying how cool it was and didn't know half of the things the tour guide was telling us about along the way.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 09, 2012 Chicago By: Laura H
The walking food tour of Chicago was a relaxing and fun experience. The tour gave us the reason to explore other neighborhoods in Chicago in addition to our regular areas. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable yet fun and humorous. I will sign up to take the other walking food tours at a later date.
Bikes, Bites, and Brews Tour - North Side Route Chicago Gourmet Jul 18, 2012 Chicago By: Kris K
My wife and I had a great time. Weather was perfect. Great pace. We would definitely do it again.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 01, 2012 Chicago By: Charles H
I feel it necessary to say that this experience needs a new title. To call it the "Walking Food Tour of Chicago" is deceptive. Included in the tour is a trip to a shop that sells spices (no food) and a trip to an oil and balsamic vinegar shop. (No bread is offered to taste, you are expected to drink the oil like a shot of liquor). Also, I did not care for the tea shop. Tea drinkers are a distinct minority in this country and I would have preferred a coffee shop. Then we finished at a place with "Fudge" in the name and were not offered fudge, but rather a toffee candy. Then a pastry shop served pierogies (which were good) and two tiny macaroons. Not the type of macaroons that anyone likes, however. The vegetarian offers of potato pancake and deep dish pizza were satisfactory. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable but I would not recommend this very disappointing tour.

John, our tour guide, was absolutely wonderful. Even though we love pizza, we literally tried four different types of pizza that we had never had. We would go on this tour again.
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 26, 2012 Chicago By: Lisa G
My only complaint was that nowhere (on the Cloud 9 experience description or on the confirmation from Chicago Pizza Tours) did it say anything about parking at the restaurant where we met. Therefore, I made the mistake of assuming -- since my husband and I are local to Chicago and are familiar with going downtown -- that Pizano's would have valet parking, which is normally reasonably priced at even the most high-end Chicago restaurants. We arrived within the appointed meeting time, only to find there was no valet parking. So we went to the nearest self-park garage and were disappointed at having to choose this option as, in our experience, self-park garages can be as much as $23 for 3+ hours. However, we figured it might be less because it was Sunday afternoon. Following the experience, we were stuffed and on a bit of a high from the good time we'd had and the new people we'd met. When we paid for our parking we were shocked to see that we were charged $32 for a little over four hours. It literally almost ruined the day and left a terrible taste in our mouth as our final impression of the experience. We had splurged on this experience and would NOT have purchased it knowing that we'd shell out another $32 (almost half the cost of the experience itself) for parking. But my biggest issue with it is that I wasn't EXPECTING it and I feel that either Cloud 9 or Chicago Pizza Tours should have given us some idea about the parking and we could have planned accordingly. Again, I go downtown frequently and when I know to plan ahead, I use ParkWhiz and can get very inexpensive parking near any location. I feel very upset that I didn't do so, but again, I feel like parking instructions should have been made clear to the purchaser of the experience. In closing, I would ONLY recommend Cloud 9/Chicago Pizza Tours with the huge caveat of "buyer beware" as it relates to parking!
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 20, 2012 Chicago By: Denise J
The experience turned out to be beyond our prior anticipations! Being natives of the area we learned so much more and enjoyed the tasty selections. Loved the guide and pilot! Very knowledgeable and friendly, lots of fun!!!-Tom Janusz
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 07, 2012 Chicago By: Lynda S
Really great day. Jess did a nice job keeping everyone moving. It was super hot so she took really good care of us. If I had one suggestion it would be to allow maybe 5-10 minutes of shopping at the spice and oil place. They were so cool and I felt a little rushed. Otherwise, it was fantastic and I am telling all of my friends.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet May 31, 2012 Chicago By: Gerald W
The variety of tasting experiences was especially good--from sandwich to a tiny oil & vinegar sample, for example. The placement of the tea tasting was just right, so we could carry the tea along to drink the rest of the walk.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet May 15, 2012 Chicago By: Lisa S
Heather, our guide for the Walking Food Tour in Chicago, was awesome! Very knowledgeable, articulate, and friendly. She paced things well and didn't miss a beat. Outstanding experience from beginning to end! Well done!
Pizza Tour Chicago Gourmet Apr 04, 2012 Chicago By: Linda H
It is not often that you see a tour guide who is so passionate about what he does. Chicago Pizza Tour was as inspiring as it was fun...all due to the passion of Joe, the owner and guide. Four thumbs up from my group!!!

Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Nov 22, 2011 Chicago By: Ben B
This tour is a must do. Not only was the food recommendations great but the things we learned along the way about Chicago were most interesting. Without the tour guide we would have just walked right by some very interesting places and homes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Anytime I visit a new city, I will be seeking this tour. It's the only way to get the real experience.

Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Sep 26, 2011 Chicago By: Cynthia K
This tour was given to me by my children as a Christmas present. I took a friend of mine and we had the best time. Hillary was our tour guide and she was outstanding. Except for the fact that we could not purchase items on the guide, I truly enjoyed the experience. I understand that it would hold up the whole tour if everyone purchased items but sometimes people do not have the time to go back right after the tour. I would highly recommend the tour!!!

Well run. Guide-well informed/knowledge re: pizza. Great fellow tourists. Good overall experience.

It's too expensive.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Aug 02, 2011 Chicago By: Emily V
Cloud 9 has great adventure ideas and the only reason I would not recommend it is because it's more expensive than going directly to the service provider and buying the experience for yourself. For the walking food tour of Chicago I think we paid $10 extra per ticket, so even though the experience comes in a nice blue box, I think everyone I know would rather save money and book the experience for themselves. However, the fact that I wouldn't recommend it doesn't mean I didn't fully enjoy the services and interactions with Cloud 9. Cloud 9 was very professional and great to work with.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jul 03, 2011 Chicago By: Leeaht G
I found the information shared and covered on the tour interesting, however if a tour that advertises as a walking food tour, make sure there is a good amount of food on the tour. Going to a spice shop, an oil company and a tea shop are places that do not contain snacks or small course meals. I came out of there hungry after the Chicago food tour and went home and ate my own lunch. I expected to come out of there full an satisfied but unfortunately that wasn't the case with this tour. I do not recommend for people to attend this tour.

Tell Hillary that Jason Mraz uses the word "scooch" in "I'm Yours": ". . .Scooch on over closer dear, and I will nibble your ear." Hillary has a great personality, and we had a lot of fun! The tour truly was advertised.
Walking Food Tour Chicago Gourmet Jun 23, 2011 Chicago By: William V
I really enjoyed the tour. I think you really need to stress the walking shoes more. It seemed like we were waiting for the people in flip flops to catch up. The choice of sites was great. Every food sample was good not too much or too little. I hope to take another tour.

Even though she is originally from Buffalo you could tell she embraced Chicago as her second home and it showed in her talks and knowledge of the city. I am from the general Chicago area and there were things that I learned while on the tour. We had a nice walk, learn a lot of new information, meet people from all over the country and ate some great food, unique to Chicago. I have already told many people about my positive experience on the tour. Job well done by your entire staff.

Our guide, Nicole, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. She did much more than I expected. I loved that along with the food tour, we also got an education about spices, oils, teas, etc, along with an architecture tour. It was wonderful. I can't wait to go on the Chinatown food tour.

My sister and I went on the Chicago Food Tour on 4/30/11, 11:00 am. Hilary was our tour guide. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely pleasant to be with. You have a very good employee and should take very good care of her!!
