I only had 1 day in Chicago and this tour was the best 4 hour tour as it took you to through all the main attractions that the city had to offer. Our tour guide Manny and drive Anton were both very knowledgeable and also super friendly which made me feel very welcome from my first step on the bus to my last step off. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is pressed for time when in Chicago.
