30 + year old movie still has plenty of interest. If you are a minor blues fan or a big fan this is a must for you to see. Thx I had a great experience. Mikie of Thunder Bay
This was the best experience I had in Chicago, Throughly enjoyed it, would highly recommend it to other visitors.
The driver was very good for all that city maneuvering. The guide was interesting. I would like to have seen more places/scenes. There were a lot of "But that is not here anymore" quotes and the end of the tour was a lot of Chicago history which I don't need. I also didn't understand why we stopped by a garbage mound that was a park. I think the tour is a great idea. Maybe outline the movie and explain where scenes were; like Lake Wasapatamie, the lakefront, where the brothers visited that house, where Elwood was pulled over, Wrigley field, The Nazi bridge, Bob's Country Bunker and explain that is too far to drive north, or west, or something like that.
This tour was a lot of fun. I've been a Blues Brothers fan for 30+ years so this was first on my list of things to do when I found out I was traveling to chicago for work. I would give it 5 stars but our bus actually broke down about 2/3 of the way through the tour so we missed the last few sites. The owner of the company quickly had a new shuttle sent to get us all back to our cars and offered to refund 100% of the cost. What we say was easily worth what we had paid so we didn't bother with trying to get a refund. Definitely recommend this tour!!!
We were not able to get off the bus once to properly see the locations the tour pointed out to us. Would have been great to have been able to take decent photos
This was not at all what we had in mind when we booked. If you like to ride the bus while watching the video, it's maybe ok. You had to see the most significant parts of the movie Blue Brothers and I'm guessing that most people who go this tour has already seen the movie.
We were deeply disappointed by this trip. I found it while looking for Blues Tours on Google, and the tour we chose was called the Blues City Tour. I assumed that meant we were going to see famous blues sites, perhaps with our tour guides dressed as the Blues Brothers, but instead it was a lame and tedious tour of sites that appeared in the Blues Brothers, a 30-year-old movie that wasn't even a hit when it came out. Call it a Blues Brothers Movie Tour, why don't you?My kids are 17 and 21 and we were all extremely bored. I would never have signed up for a Blues Brothers Tour.
