Very interesting and cool. It was neat to see the theater without so many people and also learn the history and see things you would never see otherwise.

About a 1hour and 30 minute tour which we found very interesting about the history of a gorgeous theater and Chicago landmark. Highly recommend if you're looking for a little filler while you're downtown.

Beautiful theatre built to resemble a French Opera House. Interesting tour also. It took about 1 hour and 15mins. Would recommend it!

Tour guide was very friendly and answered questions during the tour. It lasted 1-1/2 hours (longer than advertised) and was a real opportunity to see behind the scenes and hear about the history of the theater. Would recommend the tour.
