About This Deal

Though smaller than their full-sized brethren, cupcakes enjoy riotous popularity due to their decorative wrappings, colorful frosting, and catapult-friendly shape. Enjoy mouthwatering sweets on the move with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a cupcake walking tour from Chicago Chocolate Tours (a $50 value). Sink sweet teeth into the downtown Loop Tuesdays at 2:45 p.m., or the Gold Coast Thursdays at 4:45 p.m.

A Chicago Cupcake Tour explores the essential qualities of fine cupcakes, the cupcake's recent rise to prominence, and Chicago’s best cupcakeries, led by a tour guide made of cupcakes. Spend a Tuesday afternoon exploring the rich, sugary center of the downtown Loop, seeking bites from tasty sweet houses such as Sarah's Pastries & Candies inside Macy's and Flirty Cupcakes. The Thursday-afternoon route parades through the confection shops of the Gold Coast, conquering cakes for the motherland at Swirlz Cupcakes and more. You'll be fed tastings of rare and exquisite cakey treats from the city’s paramount bakers and boutiques, all while learning small bites of cupcake trivia and tickling tonsils with selections from a goody bag to go.

About Chicago Chocolate Tours

Owner Valerie Beck and her team of chocophile tour guides lead guests on walking tours of Chicago’s historical bakeries and chocolatiers, narrating the history of beloved sweets while walking an easy route through vistas of Chicago’s stunning architectural heritage. While snacking on samples of sweets, guests learn about chocolate’s storied history, the cupcake’s rise to prominence, and how to guess the flavor of filling inside Oompa Loompas by sight. Tours convene throughout Chicago’s many neighborhoods, giving guests a sneak peek into Chicago's signature confections, boutique shops, and mobile sweet-vending trucks. The chocolate or cupcake jaunts provide the perfect setting for a girls’ day out or bachelorette party, showing tour-goers the sweeter side of the city without getting caught in construction sites of shoddily built gingerbread houses.
