Anton provided exceptional, useful pointers to all of us as he expertly took us thru the major points of interest in Chicago. He is a great photographer, helping us get the perfect pictures fronting Lake Michigan with the Chicago skyline in the background! We had first time and newly relocated residents of Chicago in our group and all of us came away with insights and appreciation for the windy city! Grayline provided easy access and return thru the Palmer Hotel with the very helpful and polite Valerie!
