This tour is a must for anyone visiting Chicago. It takes you on a comprehensive look at both the north and south sides of the city. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and there were a number of stops providing opportunities to see key features up front and personal!
I enjoyed this very much and it was nice to see North Avenue where we had been the day before for the Air Show from the top of the Hancock Building
Good tour! But I strongly recommend to reconfirm the pick-up TWICE, because it may be problems and people can be got out of pick-up list of the operation conpany.
We loved it. We learned a lot about Chicago. Our guide was great and so was our driver. Thanks for a great time .
The tour guide, Matt and the bus driver Patty were absolutely fantastic and hilarious! Matt was very knowledgeable. Fantastic!!
This tour very good organize and the guide knows more than I expected..
This was a fantastic tour . You will have a complete idea of Chicago so you make take this tour as a first step.
Fabulous trip! Driver really new his information. Did get a little tired on bus for 4 hours, but I wouldn't do it any other way. We had a beautiful clear day and great weather. Learned a lot of fascinating information about the wonderful city of Chicago!
This tour was really fun and we got to see a lot of interesting places

It was good! The whole tour covered most everything about the city of chicago. Except they didn't include where Michael Jordan's monument was :) Also, make sure you are specific about the hotel pick-up. We waited almost 30 minutes in our hotel and when we called them, they said we have to meet the bus in Palmer House. We took a cab to make sure we have enough time to catch up before they all depart. Other than that, all is good.
Comprehensive tour of the city and multiple location stops for photo ops. The tour guide was beyond knowledgeable, he was Chicago! The bus driver was so skilled in driving you felt at ease as you listened to the narrated guide. Some of the pace was slightly fast but understandable for time's sake.
The grand tour was quite good, apart from the fact that Greyline forgot to pick us up, not once but twice, we stood waiting from 08:50 to 09:45 and then from 09:55 to 10:30, we only had 1 full day in Chicago. After the lies about calling at the Hotel we ended up on the afternoon tour, they were suppose to pick us up at 13:00 and eventually turned up at 13:15. All said the trip was good, although it was 2 seperate tours over 4hours with a good 10 minute gap in the middle. The first tour was better. The Hancock Observatory was just being dropped off and using the ticket. We did Sky deck as well and Sky deck won although the price of a couple of photos was $35 crazy money in the modern world of digital
Overall, it was great. Thanks to the guide. He had a lot of knowledge. I did Hancock at night, should have gone at sunset.
very good value for the money. the driver was intresting and the tour took in a lot of places we would not have seen left to our own devices.
Tour was informative and interesting. It was a good introduction to Chicago.
If looking for a good vantage point of the city, I would suggest the Willis tower over John Hancock
Tour guides very informative and enjoyable tour of Chicago and Hancock Observatory
This is a must tour for this City. Value for money - Do it on the 1st or second day
Tour was great for what turned out to be a very rainy day.
The best part of the tour is the lake side in the south city tour. It gives a beautiful view of the skyline Chicago. Hancock Observatory at 94th floor gives amazing view. There could have been a small break in some restaurant or cafe for lunch/snacks since it is around 6 hours for grand tour and Hancock Observatory. Anyway it is worth doing the tour.
