5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We had a great time! Staff were very nice and accommodating. It was truly a memorable experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Although this tour was a little pricey, it was worth every penny for this once-of-a-lifetime experience. It was fabulous and so luxurious. The food was good, the service was super, and the view for marvelous. For almost two hours we were treated like royalty and only shared the entire experience with one other family. However, each family had privacy via a partition, and each family had their own view. I would highly recommend this tour. . .in fact, when I visit Chicago again, I would try to reschedule this tour.

This experience was amazing! I not only had the entire skydeck to myself but i had a very attentive server and also the manager looking after me. The view was a bit cloudy that day so they took me through some 'secret' ways so i could get a view of the chicago skyline, the food was great too!
