This was a SIX star experience! Our guide, Alex Bean, is so knowledgeable about Chicago history, architecture, and culture. He shared stories that I imagine few Chicagoans even know. We had 2 ipads to easily share among the 8 of us: historical photographs, closeups, etc. Visiting some of the major sights with Alex provided extra insight: Cultural Center, Marshall Fields, etc. He also took us to the Temple Building, 22 floors of office building built in 1922, but complete with a beautiful church on floor one and a spire. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants a great intro to Chicago.

Our guide was upbeat, full of great information, the tour was fast-paced, we covered some really interesting territory, and I would highly recommend this excursion, company, and the guide in particular.

Paul is a lively, personable and very prepared guide
There wasn't a question he could not answer.
From the awesomeness of the Cultural center to the brawny architecture of the modernists he knew it all
Highly worthwhile.

Very well informed guide and a really interesting tour. Loved the commentary on the ex Marshall Fields Dept store. The pedway history was intriging and visiting the old Library was special - the most amazing Tiffany mosaic decore

Very interesting tour. The iPads with various pictures and video clips were a nice addition. Would like an additional tour in the various lobbies of old buildings in the loop area.

Put on your walking shoes!!!! This tour is terrific! It's fun, it's interesting, it's informative. Our guide Alex was the best. He obviously loves what he does, loves Chicago and enjoys passing his knowledge on to others. The two hours goes by in a flash. Just as a side notethe tour ends at the Chicago Cultural Centerit is stunning!!!!!

This was a great tour with a very knowledgeable and excited tour guide. We saw great inside architectural sights with accompanying history and cultural information. Not strenuous although some stairs. While not a specific part of the tour we walked by the studio of NPR Story Corps. OUr guide pointed out sights in the neighborhood as well.

Really enjoyed this tour. Paul was a great tour guide and was very knowledgeable. He shared some great insights and the buildings we saw were all beautiful. Going inside the buildings gives you a very different perspective of Chicago.

I'm a 45 year resident of the Chicago area and I had no idea about the architecture we learned about on this tour. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and added little tidbits along the way. I am taking the grandchildren on this tour this summer. Chicago is a wonderful place to visit and live and there is so much to learn about this great city. Thanks for a great day.
