I usually never want to take the time to review our vacation experiences. But, the Bike Tour company went out of their way and showered us with kindness when we couldn't locate them. The gal on the phone literally walked us step by step over the phone to find the location. Even though I was quite frustrated at first, we had an incredible experience.

Our tour guide David was awesome, and the scenic locations were a perfect mix of busy areas, but not so busy streets to ride on. Thanks!

I went on a very small tour of three with Jeremy leading and a new young lady bringing up the rear. Jeremy was very knowledgeable and very safety conscious. He took us along some quiet back streets into the historical district, Lincoln park, Lincoln zoo and along the lakefront shore. Jeremy was both entertaining and humorous. The bikes were very easy to operate and I would recommend this tour without hesitation.

This for me personally, was the highlight of my trip to Chicago. I really rate this tour and the guide was great.You don't have to be Bradley Wiggins to be able to do this tour. Its flat and the pace is easy. Viator made the process of booking this really easy.
