Everything was perfect! Thank you so so much! It was greatly enjoyed by all! Thanks again!

It was a wonderful afternoon – Bonnie was very friendly and very attentive to anyone’s needs and kept us right on schedule.

Thank you, also, for everything you did to make this event a success. Your attention to detail, liaising with the staff to ensure the special meals went to the correct people, and fun tour commentary were much appreciated. Great job! Our group seemed to really enjoy the event and I suspect we’ll be working together again in the future.

Thanks to you and the team for coordinating a fun event last Friday! The teachers loved the show, having their own personal transportation and the dinner went very well too. Everything went very smoothly and efficiently – we appreciate all of the attention to details. Thank you again!

Thank you for everything on Wednesday night! It was such a great evening and our attendees really enjoyed themselves. Many of them commented to me that this was the best event they have been to. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events. I will also let the other meeting planners know about your company in case she has any Chicago events coming up. I really appreciate all of your hard work to put this event together. Thank you!

You all have been fantastic to work with and I will surely recommend you all. Bonnie and the driver did a FANTASTIC job. Thank you!

Brandon was great about follow up, organizing the event, and taking care of all the details. All we had to do was show up. And on the coldest night of December, we were warmly shuttled from our hotel, to dinner, to the Oriental Theater, then back to our hotel. It was spectacular!

Thank you. Everyone had a great time. Great choices on the venues. You guys are awesome. Hope to work with you again sometime.

Our experience was greater than what we expected. This was something new to do as a team builder since our Oncology organization is not as large as the other departments within the organization. We choosing Chicago Dine-Around, I completely went off the Yelp reviews and I was hoping that wasn’t a mistake. And guess what, it wasn’t, it was FANTASTIC. Brandon arranged for ground transportation to pick up the group from our office (Northbrook) and bring us downtown so that individuals wouldn’t have to drive, which was a seller for us as our team hates to drive downtown after work. Brandon and his team met us at the first restaurant and the night began from there. The choices are restaurants they have to choose from and the individual attention that Brandon ensures you receive is amazing. We chose to go with his top tier package as this provided us with unlimited beverages. During the bus ride, it was nice to learn more about Chicago even though the majority of us are from here. We ended the evening with dessert at the drake Hotel which was amazing. What I loved about this experience is that at each stop we sat with different people, it wasn’t planned but something that came naturally to us to get to know other people in our organization that we don’t talk to on a daily basis. THE TEAM STILL TALKS ABOUT IT TODAY.
After experiencing such great service, I had my meeting planning department reach out to Brandon again for another event that I was responsible for a much larger audience as we thought this would be great for our out of town guest. Once again this was the best choice ever, and the greatest part was that Brandon was our host for this event. Once again we went to different restaurants for each course (dietary options are not an issue as Brandon ensures this is handled before we got to the restaurant). This team we have a cross-functional team that included senior level management and they LOVED IT. We ended our night at a Jazz Club for dessert but my group was having such a good time, I don’t know if we even listened to the jazz music. This event that Brandon sponsors is such a great team building event!!! What better way to get to know your colleagues and experience the taste of Chicago. What a fantastic idea that Brandon and his team came up with. We will definitely be participating again in the future, more when the weather gets nice as we did our last Progressive Dining Tour with him in February of this year.
I am so happy that you reached out to me to provide this review; I would highly recommend Brandon and his team!!!

The Dine-Around was a HUGE success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. We especially got a kick out of our Tour Guide and the Chicago trivia. The food was exceptional and each restaurant was a unique experience in itself. We will spread the word. Thanks for making it all go so seamlessly.

Great evening showcasing Chicago! We did a dine-around with 30 guests from all over the country. Our objectives were to have a great time together, eat well and to showcase our great city. The folks at Dine-Around were able to help us achieve those objectives 100%. Well done!! I highly recommend them and would use them again.

It was a great time! Everyone was very happy with how it turned out and our guide Daniella was great! She made it so easy and helped everything run smoothly. Well worth the money and we all agreed we would do it again and could select different restaurants and it would feel like a totally different event. Everyone was really happy with it and felt it was a much better option than just doing a large group dinner at one restaurant!

Thanks again for a wonderful, memorable party. I feel certain we’ll be back next year. The Chicago Dine Around Progressive Dinner Tour was the best holiday party my boss has had for his direct reports! The restaurants were great, our driver was friendly and prompt in picking us up and taking us back at the end of the evening, and our tour guide kept us on schedule and told great stories about Chicago during the drive to each restaurant. As the planner, this was great for me because Chicago Dine Around Staff did all the work! I could actually enjoy myself and not worry. Many thanks to Brandon and his wonderful staff. Book your holiday event with Chicago Dine Around now!

I organized an event for almost 300 people at the Chicago Dine Around. I have been hearing feedback all day about what a great time people had, what a unique experience it was, and how fantastic the food was! The event was organized, fun, and really different than the usual corporate events. I also personally attended this once before with the general public and can tell you both the specialized events and the general ones are a totally fun, unique way to see the city. I’d wholeheartedly recommend this attraction to anyone, both Chicago natives and out of town guests! Thanks for a great time, Brandon and crew!

First of all, thank you so much for yesterday – everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The choice of restaurants was superb, the food was delicious, the bus ride was great – I can’t say enough of great things about Chicago Dine Around. What’s is worth to you that you will probably be getting many, many reservations from different departments at Alberto Culver. I wrote an e-mail this morning to 5 different people in 5 different departments letting them know how great it was. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts in planning and coordinating the event for us yesterday. From what I heard I think everyone really enjoyed themselves and I really appreciate you guys being flexible with the timing and options we had. Thanks again!!

Thank you for your help coordinating this! Everyone had a GREAT time, and they are still talking about it! Also, please give a BIG thank you and kudos to our driver, John, for getting us there and back safely! He had some pretty yucky weather and road conditions to work with, but you never would have guessed it due to his excellent driving. The group was able to have a great time, laugh, socialize with each other, and didn’t have to worry about navigating the traffic and weather. Much thanks to him. He played a big part in our night being wonderful, and I want to make sure he got recognition for it!

I just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful event. The progressive dining experience was a lot of fun and everything turned out very well. The food was excellent. I think the ridiculously cold weather was tolerated by all because they were having a good time.

Thank you again for facilitating our Dine-Around experience, the group had a wonderful time.

Our evening went very well. Nothing but positive feedback from all of our guests. Night flowed with ease for all we had planned.

Thank you for such a wonderful evening. Being in the hospitality industry we are always conscious of good customer service and I can say that your company provided excellent customer service. The event was such a success, our clients are still chatting about it. The food portions were large and the restaurants were welcoming. I was very pleased with how professional and organized your staff was. The Dine-Around team did not miss a beat on anything and you represented the Hilton Suites Chicago Magnificent Mile well. I would surly recommend your services to other companies that want to entertain clients in a whole new way.

I want to thank you for making our experience with Chicago Dine-Around very enjoyable. The evening was a great success. All of the attendees had great compliments for the evening. They enjoyed the food, the tour and Millennium Park. I’d also like to thank Bonnie. She made sure the meals was a great experience at the restaurants, was interactive with facts about Chicago that was entertaining and was very open and amenable. She contributed to the enjoyment of the evening. I would have no problem recommending your company to others.

EVERYONE was happy. What they said was a great part of it was that people get moved around…by that I mean you wind up sitting next to someone else on each trip, instead of going to a restaurant and sitting with the same folks all night.

Here is some of the feedback I received!
· Loved it! I would definitely do it again. Loved the idea of going to different restaurants for each course and the tour guide was very friendly.
· I thought it was great. The lady running it was really nice and sweet and she kept it moving like clockwork. Very fun.
· Chicago Dine Around was so much fun. Our host made the experience fun with interactive games during our rides to different locations. And the food was delicious.
· Overall good experience. It was a very new and creative idea, good restaurants, and was kept on good schedule.

Thank you so much for your help coordinating our dinner last weekend. It sounds like everyone had a great time and we appreciate your management of all the components. Thanks again – look forward to working with you again.

Thanks again for the great job you did with our group a couple weeks ago! Everyone had fun and the frequent change of venues ensured that there was a lot of mixing and mingling, which was my goal.

All of our guests’ feedback of the event was positive. They enjoyed the food and the restaurants, and the settings where they could visit with each other. There was plenty of food, which they enjoyed also.

The conference we held is an annual event and we will definitely be suggesting it to our future conference planners. Thank you again for your flexibility in working with us, we had a wonderful time!

Everyone enjoyed their time on the tour and it was way too much food, dessert was my favorite. But everything was really great.

Thanks for organizing the night out to Second City, it was the highlight of the trip and much appreciated. I will recommend this to other groups here at KC that will be coming to Chicago later this year. Most everyone from the Chicago trip is back in the office today. Cece said that the whole night was simply amazing. Everyone had such an awesome, fun time. I will highly recommend it to everyone else here at Kimberly-Clark.
