This tour was sorely disappointing. Although the tour guide seemed to know his information (for the most part), there was way too much history about Chicago and not enough relevant information about present day. In 2 hours we covered the river...continued

Excellent tour. Dan was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. We learned a lot about Chicago history. His packets with photographs of Chicago through history really brought it to life.

Great Tour guide and lots of Chicago history. Loved walking around but there was more standing around listening to the tour guide than walking around. But I would definitely recommend this tour.

history of Chicago
2 & 1/2 hour walking tour, but little walking.
We walked to about 6 different locations and there was a speech or college type lecture at each point.
The points had to do with Chicago's history.
