Patrick is a blast! We enjoyed his knowledgeable film commentary and witty dialogue while touring Chicago film sites. Our only constructive feedback is that the screen to watch the films is too small and it was almost impossible to see the dark film images in direct sunlight. We expected to have individual screens on the back of our bus seats, which would have eliminated screen glare. In other words, Patrick deserves to have a tricked-out bus that is comfortable because the tour is two hours long, and we were stiff from sitting the entire two hours.

Excellent value for what you get. It is essentially a city tour combining Chicago movie history, movie trivia, movie scenes and site seeing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Wrigleyville and Uptown were not accessible due to a ball game and road construction, respectively - if not for that, I would have given it 5 stars.

Two hours spent on a bus. Movie scenes play on a TVs inside the bus as the tour guide points out the actual locations as the bus passes by. Interesting but two hours is a long time to be sitting on a bus. Highlights were passing Wrigley Field, and the Biograph Theater where Dillinger was killed.

This was great fun! We have since recommended this tour to our friends when they visit Chicago. The movie clips play as you pass the locations. Just great fun and because you are on the bus, weather is not an issue. So any time of year works.

You are riding in a bus with a lot of eager movie fans. You have a highly entertaining Tour guide that with the help of a video screen you see the movie clips of the place that you are driving to and stop at. Too bad you couldn't see the actual filming of the shot. The trip through Chicago city was great.

Our guide, a movie critic himself, was funny and very informative. This should be the FIRST tour you take in the city because you see EVERY neighborhood .

It was ok, a good way to see the city and get a few interesting facts. The two guys that run the tour are great, we were just expecting something more based on the reviews.
