5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

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 .

Trip was great and the guide was excellent. Coach was sub standard and really needs a clean out. Been suffering from insect bites or flea bites from seats since. Bus needs an upgrade.

I thoroughly enjoyed this! The guide a Chicago film critic had an obvious enthusiasm and love of his subject. Watching the film clips whilst viewing the same locations through the bus window was a really great way to see the city and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
