Food tours in Chicago

We are planning a trip to Chicago this fall and would like to take a walking food tour.
The top two seem to be Tastebuds and Planet Food tours. Has anyone been on these tours, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

There's really no comparison in our book- Chicago Food Planet is the way to go. They get you outta downtown and into the neighborhoods; great guides too. We've taken all three tours- just did the Chinatown tour in May- incredible. They do an amazing job of focusing not only on the foods (and lots of food to eat!), but on the history of homes, restaurants, areas, etc. $45 well spent- we've taken food tours in NYC, Boston, Miami, San Fran and Minneapolis- this outfit is by far the best.

Thanks for your reply. We took a food tour in New York and loved it so hope we will like the one in Chicago as well.

We will be staying at the Homewood Suites on Grand Ave-which Chicago Food Planet tour would have a meeting place near our hotel?

Did you do Foods of NY in Greenwich Village? Spectacular tour if you haven't done it yet- my fav was the Murray's cheese shop. Their Near north tour is closest to downtown- just depends on your comfort zone of the city. Start close to downtown or start a bit farther (i.e. chinatown is south of city but not far- plenty of public transport though). Hope this helps- plenty of great food in Chicago so go explore!
