How was your experience?
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 down to the State Street Bridge starting at the NBC Tower. Not a lot of territory and yet it took 2 hours. The guide handed out brochures at the start of the tour with pictures of old Chicago and collected them at the end of the tour. Pretty cheap, if you ask me. He also referred to the Carbide and Carbon Bldg as the Union Carbide-Carborum Bldg--wrong info. I truly felt this was a waste of my time as did my friend who also went on the tour. I hate to have to say this- but don't waste your time or money until this tour is revamped.
