Theatre was BEAUTIFUL!! The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We had to come into the tour late because our bus had a late arrival, and they took us in like nothing happened. Definatly a thing to see!

This was a great tour with an excellent tour guide. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there was a show that night and the band was setting up onstage so we couldn't go backstage or into the dressing rooms. The theater is...continued

This was an excellent tour and very well worth it. Our guide, Javier, was very knowledgable and personable. The architecture and design are stunning, and the history is compelling.

Very well thought-out history and tour of this magnificent structure. Hillary, our guide, had a vast knowledge of the building and it's history. She was well spoken and answered questions clearly with confidence. Very cool to stand on that stage...continued

We went to the 12:30 pm tour on a Sat. morning and the tour guide, Derek, was excellent. He told many interesting stories about the building, performers, and audience.

For the price, this tour was AWESOME. I live in Chicago and have seen just about everything, but I can't believe the bang-for-your-buck quality of this tour. I learned SO much about the Chicago theater, and going on stage was so fun. I will be...continued

Great tour - informative and interesting. We're a young couple who have lived in Chicago for 7+ years - we learned a lot & really enjoyed ourselves. We'll never look at the Chicago Theatre the same way again :).

Great trip down memory lane! Hilary was a fantastic guide...very knowledgeable and enthused about the theater. We got to visit all parts of this beautifully restored and maintained treasure. Highly recommend this tour.

It was definitely worth the money to attend the Chicago Theatre Marquee Tour. We really enjoyed hearing about the history of the theatre (what movie theaters were like back in the 1920's), the architecture, the marble lobby floors, the pipe...continued
