Our guide had a great sense of humor and a lot of knowledge of the city. Riding the loop and checking out the architecture was a lot of fun. Please remind Chicago drivers that red means stop.

Great tour of Chicago

David was wonderful! At first I was a little wary of spending $100+ for a tour of Chicago when I live in Chicago, but my mom was visiting and she really wanted to do the tour. I’m so glad we did! I learned things about the city I didn’t know, and tried some food I hadn’t been brave enough to try yet. David is so knowledgeable, and you could tell that he really loves the city. He wants to share it with everyone and was so welcoming and friendly with everyone we encountered. He makes a genuine effort to get to know everyone in your group, and he’s also willing to share things about his own life so you can get to know him, too.

We had a wonderful experience provided by a superb guide DAVE. He shared stories about the city we have not heard. Paced the walking perfectly to accommodate the group and allowed just the right number if stops. Views and food were what we were hoping for. You’ll love this your.
