I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Sharon was a Chicago native and truly passionate about her city. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Windy CIty and full of information about it's past.

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.

I expected an architectural tour, my mistake, it was a historic tour.
But even with a historic tour, I actually expected a TOUR = walking and having a description of historic places. Instead, we didn't walk but remained seated from place to place...continued

The tour was 90% inside and I assumed from the photo in the advertisement that it was an outside tour. It was such a beautiful day, but we didn't get to spend much time enjoying it. The tour guide was great - very knowledgeable and funny! I...continued
