Stinky Onion Tours
Walking is one of the best ways to get to know a city. It forces you to move slowly, taking in every weathered brick, intriguing alleyway, and door marked with the sign "Do Not Look At This Door." There's also a good chance it will lead to adventure. At least, that's the belief at the heart of Stinky Onion Tours' walking excursions. With a love of walking rivaled only by local pride––as evidenced by the company's name, a nod to the legendary mistranslation that gave Chicago its name––the company uncovers forgotten moments in Chicago's past through a combination of food and historical fact. Tours include Truckin' Along, which introduces the history of the city's food trucks and makes stops for a bite at several. Hobohemia explores the city's long-ago hobo and bohemian culture, and the Old Town tour winds through the historic venues and restaurants of the neighborhood of the same name.
