As this was my first visit to Chicago, I took the four hour tour and at the end of it I felt I had a general idea of what Chicago was like. I was lucky with the weather, Chicago's blue sky made everywhere inviting and our guide's rather pseudo-ironic style managed to enliven the neighbourhoods and the buildings we passed. The twenty minute break at the conservatory filled with spring made a perfect teaser for what would replace the still-bare nature outside. My one quibble is that the windows of the bus should always be perfectly clean (no water marks) so the pictures taken from the bus (there are few stops) are free of streaks, etc.
great, north and south Chicago in 2 separate tours, hotel pickup - great!!,
knowledgeable guide, very informative and entertaining
I cannot imagine having gone to Chicago and missed this tour. We learned so much from our informative guide who was humerous and very interactive with the group. We had a blast! Everyone in our family, from the "elders" through the teenagers absolutely raved about the experience. Thanks for the memories!
Unfortunately the weather was unkind on the day of our tour,but otherwise we
found it an interesting and informative experience ! Our guide, named Grant, imparted
information on the city's Architecture in a very clear and distinct voice. He ecouraged
and got great participation from the tour group. We would strongly recommend visitors to chicago to include this tour in their itinerary!

The tour was ok but the public address system on the tour bus was terrible. It kept on shorting out while the tour guide was speaking. When I complained I was informed that the system has been not functioning for a long time. In my opinion,this company should not continue taking people's money for tours until this matter is corrected.
Loved the sights of Chicago. My only hassle was contacting the driver for hotel pick up. No one answered the phone.
good. interesting. learned a lot. i think there could have been a more to cover however.
The tour guide, Matt and the bus driver Patty were absolutely fantastic and hilarious! Matt was very knowledgeable. Fantastic!!
I actually found this tour to be a little boring. The driver was also the guide, so it was quite robotic and not very personal. I prefer couch tours which have a separate guide as they tend to be more interesting. Not recommended.
I do not recommend it.
Very informative and very relaxing. Learned a lot about Chicago and what sites to do in future.
Chicago by bus is a little tough as its hard to get the full effect in a vehicle. The tour pace is dictated by the traffic and specific to this tour anyway, very hard to understand and keep up with what the guide was saying. It was nice to relax and drive around. Probably wouldn't have seen otherwis
well worth while.. plus the speed boat on the lake was great.
Excellent way to see the city! My husband had never been to Chicago-our guide was great.
