PURCHASING

    Tickets must be purchased in advance via website. Please book your culinary adventure in advance as seating is limited. We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express. Cash is not accepted.
    Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded or rescheduled as your seats are being guaranteed on the tour bus. Tours sell out quickly so please schedule in advance to secure desired time and date. No partial credits for no shows or late arrivals. The buses leave the pick-up location on time.

HOW LONG IS THE TOUR?

    Our South Side, Pilsen/Little Village, and Secret Tavern tours are approximately 3½ hrs. long and our “Greatest Hits” and Little Italy tours are 3 hrs. long.
