    We had a great time. We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was Jeff. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He really did his best to make the group feel comfortable. I was afraid we would be rained out. It turned out to be a great day and a great group of people. Next the cupcake tour.(Posted on 2/15/2016)
    Underwhelming..... Review by KC_Chicago
    Your rating
    I really wanted to love this tour, which leaves me confused by the reviews/tour description- compared with the tour actually was. Major corrections to be made to this tour's description. It is not two hours- it is THREE hours, which should be noted if you have plans for the remainder of the day. Also, we were not given 12 tastings- it was eight. Three at the first stop, three at the second, and two at the last. I was under the assumption that this would be a wine and cheese pairing- with suggestions for pairing wines to actual cheeses. Instead it was brief, if any, descriptions about the wine from a restaurant employee (not the tour guide) and cheese-based food- like pizza, focaccia bread, etc. I was very disappointed with the last stop- 25 Degrees, as the waitress describe the two wines as "this is our house white" and "this is our house red". I'm not kidding. If you actually want to learn something about wine or cheese, stray far away from this- as what this is in actuality is a crawl from three stops that provide you with wine and cheesy foods. Not awful, not great.(Posted on 1/25/2016)

    We really enjoyed Wine & Cheese tour in Chicago. It was fun! We stopped at 3 places, tried 3 different wine in each restaurant and cheese which was paired nicely with wine.
    it was a great way to not only sample wine and food, but also find out about restaurants we normally would not have tried (or known existed). We will recommend it. We found good deal on Groupon for this tour!

    I took the wine and cheese tour last Saturday with my Mom and it was a blast. Jason is such a fun host. He really knows his stuff. I actually have taken a few of your tours and had Jason on the cupcake tour as well. He was awesome both times. I actually just bought 2 new tickets for the wine tour so I can bring my girlfriend.

    Great value for a date and with the Groupon was an amazing value. Review by Ron S
    Your rating
    Really fun way to spend a date night out in Gold Coast area of Chicago.

    You walk to 3 different restaurants and you get 12 different items.

    You take a bit of a chance and luck of the draw in the places you end up.

    Plenty of cheese and wine will be had and you can order extra stuff, if you choose.

    We had several memorable items that we would not have ever tried, under normal circumstances.

    Great way to try out different places for wine and cheese.(Posted on 9/27/2015)
    Highly recommend the wine+cheese tour with Jason Review by John L
    Your rating
    My girlfriend and I just took the Chicago Wine and Cheese Tour with Jason Fitzpatcik and we had an excellent time. The wines and cheeses were fantastic, and the locations Jason picked were each very unique. Our favorite location was the Berkshire Room, a beautiful space that used to be the lobby of the historic Berkshire Hotel, and is now a trendy cocktail/whiskey/wine lounge with a speakeasy vibe. We also really enjoyed hearing a bit about each wine from the server or sommelier.

    All in all, it was a great afternoon. Would highly recommend it!

    Seth was such a great tour guide. He is both smart and charismatic. He made everyone feel included and was hilarious.I told him he'd make a great comedian, and it turns out he really is a comedian! I'm definitely going to check out his show.
    This tour is a great date idea, and I will definitely be coming back with a lucky lady.

    Amazing Tour Review by Daniel A
    Your rating
    This tour couldn't have been better. Our tour guide, Seth Davis, was not only extremely knowledgeable, he was funny and very entertaining. I would recommend this tour to everyone, both local and from out of town. This was not your average tour. It was interactive, smart, and never dull. Thank you!(Posted on 9/25/2015)
