The experience was great. Marco, our guide, was fun and easy to talk to. We had a small group and everyone got along well. I would highly recommend this tour with Marco.
Ive never really tried anything like this in the US before. Last kind was in Paris by a guy named Anto. They say he is the Marco of France and Marco is the Anto in the US. The two apparently know each other well. This is so unique and it feels more like you are hanging out with like-minded adventurous people from different parts of the world. its unlike the common bar hopping tours or pub crawls where you're just a group of people who get drunk from bar to bar. yeah its fun but then thats it.in Marcos tour however, you get to exchange life stories and become friends. its more meaningful its light its fun and you laugh so much at interesting observations between the diversity in the group. One of the ladies, had not been on the L before and she were so excited. To witness that is priceless. Also we were people of varying backgrounds. Everyone in my group locals and travelers alike were so welcoming of each other open and genuinely interested in each others background and story. This tour is definitely for people accepting and interested in other cultures and viewpoints. A lot of conversation goes on at the bar during the walk between one bar to another and Marco is the perfect personality to get all of us who don't really know each other into one fun group of people. The bar selection is amazing. It's far from tourist traps and you see what everyday Chicagoans look like. You don't overspend. We traded childhood events, embarrassing moments and if you're that quiet shy person in the group you still get a kick out of everyone else. The last bar we went to supposedly is always a treat - we were pretty drunk happy by then and theres a fun chicago fact or two throughout. Not the traditional tour! many of us exchanged numbers by the end of the night. some of whom i can say that when I visit Texas or London or Paris or Puerto Rico I will have a friend to take me somewhere. Im glad Marco is doing this tour in Chicago.
The tour was awesome! You get to really experience Chicago from a local's point of view and meet some cool people in the process. Marco is a great host. He is really knowledgable about the city and willing to give out suggestions on things to do/places to eat and drink. Totally worth the money, I would recommend it 100!
This was such a good time! If you want to go to some cool bars and get the real Chicago experience you should totally do this, it is worth it. Marco was an awesome host and had great restaurant/bar recommendations for the rest of my trip. I would definitely recommend this tour. 5 stars all around!
Had a blast, will definitely do this tour again!
