Made great new friends and memories. IF I had to complain I'd say it was too short but for most people 4 hours is plenty, but I was willing to go all day this experience was the best city experience I've ever had.

Definitely a great way to see the city but if you’re used to typical food tours, the restaurant stops were minimal. To me There is better value for the price elsewhere. Tour guides were excellent and equipment was well taken care of

Great ride, led by Julia. I highly recommend because you get to eat and drink while adding a little cardio. You can't beat that with a stick. I only had one full day in Chicago, so this tour allowed me to maximize my time!
