The Difference

Chef Driven Food Tours is a Chicago based culinary adventure tour that was designed and is owned and operated by a co-op of professional chefs. Our goal is for our guests to experience the “real Chicago” food scene through the eyes of native Chicago chefs. We take you off the beaten downtown path of corporate and chain restaurants and into the neighborhoods. Taste the best flavors of “Chicago’s hidden gems” and see more art, culture, and history all while getting the insider’s view of the Chicago food scene.
