We enjoyed Rick's enthusiasm for his topic and his expertise in putting the tour together. He added many facts we were unaware of and kept our interest throughout the tour in spite of the intense heat this past Friday.

Chicago is so beautiful. Mike was very knowledgeable but could not be heard because of the surrounding boat noises and excursions.

The guide did a great job in story telling. Engaging and energetic. We picked a perfect day weatherwise but the location was crowded with other tourists, street perfomers and even protesters. I would still highly recommend it.

Dan was one of my favorite guides of all time—a great story-teller and a knowledgeable guide. Dan's tour made me fall in love with Chicago all over again.
