Very Accommodating!
By Jacqueline on October 27, 2013
The tour was definitely a fun experience for the discounted price we paid, though we'd probably explore on our own for the full price (but it ultimately depends on the value of the cupcake). First, my best friends and I have very conflicting schedules, and when we finally had coinciding free time, the tour was sold out! Fortunately, Great Food Tours actually took time and squeezed us into their tour. I have to commend our tour guide Jonathan (I think) for his great attitude. He went above and beyond expectations. Not only did he manage to maintain a calm and smiling demeanor after dealing with extremely annoying sugar-wired kids (for his first tour ever!), he also managed to get my Muslim friend a substitute chocolate cupcake in place of the BLT cupcake from More. I was extremely pleased with how everything was handled. Normally, I'd put in a note, but who would have figured they'd be serving us bacon cupcakes?! Overall, it was a great time. We're definitely planning to try the chocolate tour next some time. We're likely to purchase tickets through Groupon again. Thanks again for the amazing customer service!
This Tour Takes the Cake!
By Kristy K on September 26, 2015
My friend and I were looking for something fun and affordable to do on a Sunday afternoon and a co-worker had told us about a cupcake tour she had gone on in the city a few weekends before. My friend and I decided to take the same tour and we couldn't have made a better choice for a weekend girls' day out! Our tour guide was Seth and he made the tour very fun, engaging, and highly entertaining with his in-depth knowledge of the city and his witty humor. I was not expecting to learn so much about the city during a cupcake tour, so this was like getting two tours for one! The walking tour takes you through some of the best parts of Chicago all within a few blocks of each other and hearing the history behind some of these places and discovering the great cup-cakeries located there while getting to taste various cupcakes made the tour convenient and well worth it! This tour is highly recommended for anyone - whether you're from Chicago, the surrounding area, or from out of town!

Jeff Our Awesome Tour Guide!!!
By Laurie on August 10, 2016
We were on the Cupcake Tour on Sunday 8/7/16. This was my third Cupcake Tour and my second time having Jeff as my tour guide. He is extremely personable and very knowledgeable about the city of Chicago. No matter how many times you go on this tour, it will always be a different experience. We had a fantastic time and I would definitely recommend the Cupcake Tour to anyone who is looking to learn about the city while enjoying delicious treats!! I highly recommend getting Jeff as your tour guide and think he deserves a large raise!!!
A Birthday Treat
By KatC on October 16, 2016
We did the walking Tour on Saturday afternoon at 3:00. Very prompt, our guide kept us moving while stopping several times to tell us about city sites and buildings. He was very knowledgeable about Chicago history. We visited several little shops that you wouldn't even know they were there. Everyone of the shops were very friendly and offered great treats. Our group had time to shop at each location. With the laughs along the way we had a great time! Be sure to wear good walking shoes! It's a fast paced walk, but so worth it!
Cupcake Jason is the best!
By Kami G on September 26, 2015
My girlfriends and I wanted to do something fun together and decided on the Cupcake Tour. Jason made our experience so much FUN, even during a February Chicago day! Whether you are a cupcake fan or not (really, who isn't?), this tour is for you. After coming down from our sugar high, we came back the next day to a couple of our favorite stops and bought many cupcakes to take home. We plan on booking the Wine & Cheese Tour with Jason in the near future and bringing more of our friends to join us! I RECOMMEND.
