Big news today – new tours, offered in the U.S.! We have been pondering this step for a while, and are thrilled to start with our own hometown, Chicago. Don’t have time for a week in Europe? Don’t have the funds for a trip abroad? Prefer to stay close to home? Want to catch a Cubs or Sox game? There are a lot of great reasons to try our new, 3-night foodie experience in Chicago.
When designing our first domestic tour, we thought a lot about what travelers to Chicago would want. Great food of course, and Chicago has a ton of it, from hot dogs to Michelin stars. We knew we wanted to leave time for exploring on your own – either shopping on the Magnificent Mile, perusing the world-renowned museums, or exploring the famous architecture, according to your own interests. We knew we wanted to include a foodie tour that would get people off the beaten track and into Chicago’s neighborhoods. And of course, we wanted to include a cooking class!
Whether you are planning a romantic weekend, a girls’ getaway, or a solo trip, we think out food lover’s tour of Chicago is the perfect mix of food and fun. It is also easily customized. Want to make it “VIP”? Just let us know and we’ll include private airport transfers, chef’s tasting dinners, 5* accommodations, and more.
We are working on other U.S. itineraries as well that we hope to be adding by the end of the year or in early 2017. So check back soon! But in the meantime, do as we’ve done and start with our hometown, Chicago.
