- Be sure to wear comfy clothes for Chicago’s dynamic weather trends!
- All ages are welcome, come have fun with the whole family!

Note: Not recommended for participants under the ages of 17 due to the fact that we do go into bars on this particular tour. That said, we do realize that every child is different so we do leave it in the hands of the parents to ultimately decide what is okay for their child and what is not. It might be that you just sit outside during the stops that include the bar. A good rule of thumb to know whether a tour is kid-friendly to see if we offer kid prices on the tour. If no kid prices, it’s probably not the best suited. But again, it’s up to the parents to ultimately decide because all kids are different. Whether to bring your child is ultimately up to your discretion, but please note that ALL CHILDREN need a paid ticket.

We've done a couple of bike tours with Bobby's Bike Hike over the years and we loved them all. Actually, we now always look up "bike tour" when we visit a major city (like London or Berlin). Biking along the lake front is great, you zip along and you get views of the city you wouldn't get if you just walked around the Loop. One tour was to the zoo -- I just wish we'd have had more time to actually walk around. The bikes have always been comfortable, the guides are a pleasure to talk to, everyone has always felt safe, including kids (when we took our daughter for the first time she was 8).

"Chinatown walking/eating tour"

Reviewed November 11, 2018
The tour was awesome. It went from 4-6:30pm and started on the north end of Chinatown. We visited 5 different restaurants, a bakery and a candy shop with Asian candies galore! Each stop included a food sampling and an interesting spiel about the Chinese food as it pertains to the historical aspect of immigration into the Chicago area. Omar, our tour guide, was super interesting, funny, and obviously well versed. I look forward to checking out the other tours, maybe in the summertime for a bike tour!

Frequently Asked Questions about Chicago Favorites Food and Walking Tour

Is there an age limit for this tour?
Since the tour does go into Chicago bars, it is not recommended for children under the age of 17. However, this is up to the parent’s discretion.

How long and strenuous is the tour?
This is a 2.5-hour guided tour across 1.5 miles. However, the pace is easy and ideal for all ages and activity levels.

May I bring my dog on this tour?
Sorry, pets are not allowed on the tours.

Will there be breaks for restrooms?
Our walking tours start at various locations around the City and while we do our best to accommodate restrooms at the start of your tour, we do highly recommend using the restroom prior to arrival to your tour. We will have restroom stops built into each walking tour. For our food and walking tours, all of the restaurants we visit will have restrooms to use.

Do you offer water on your tours?
We do not provide water on our tours due to the fact that they all originate from locations outside of our headquarters. Please plan ahead and bring water with you. For our culinary, restaurant and food tours our restaurant partners will provide water free of charge.

Do you have a stroller I can use for my child?
No stroller, no problem! We rent strollers out for daily use, multi-daily use. But most of our walking tours do not originate from our bike shop. You will want to make arrangements in advance to rent and pick up your stroller. Please note that our tour guides many times meet the group directly in the neighborhood covered on the tour, without stopping at the bike shop, so we cannot deliver strollers to you.

Are your tours ADA accessible?
All of our walking tours at the present moment do allow for ADA compliant and wheelchair accessible. But please note that sometimes our restaurants change and we cannot guarantee every restaurant will not include stairs of some sort which might make things difficult. A majority of our stops should be ADA compliant.

What should I wear? What should I bring?
We recommend you bring small items such as an ID, credit card and cash (to tip the guide), cell phone, and camera. We suggest tennis shoes and comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that are appropriate for the weather conditions on the day of your tour. We strongly suggest you wear layers, particularly in spring and fall. Many of our tours are downtown, close to Lake Michigan, which is one of the largest lakes in the world and can alter the temperature quickly based on the direction of the wind.

How much walking is involved?
Not more than you can handle! The pace is usually good for everyone. We’ve rated each tour-level so that you can pick the right tour for you. We do stop at various points of interest and attractions so that you can have a brief rest while our tour guides explain the history of Chicago in a way that brings the stories to life. While you want to make sure the distance we cover is suitable for you, remember that we will never be walking continuously for that amount of time. We will have 6-8 stops mixed in along the route for resting periods and to learn about Chicago. Please note that with some of our walking tours there are some stairs that we navigate during the tour.

Are tours offered in bad weather?
We run most of our tours in any type of weather. Walking tours run year round as they are less dependent on stable weather for their operation. During the nicer months, we use the beautiful outdoor promenades for our walking tours. And during inclement weather, we can duck down and use Chicago’s unique underground pedway system to get from point to point. Just remember to always dress for the weather.  Because our walking tours do not leave from our headquarter location, we do not provide rain ponchos should a pop-up shower occur.

Are guide gratuities included in the price?
The tour price does not include gratuities in the cost of our tours. If you had a great time gratuities are accepted by our tour guides.
