Came to Chicago with two other couples for a fun weekend with friends and decided to take advantage of an unseasonably warm weekend with some local sightseeing. I came across their website and Mike was great with working us into the schedule for a private two hour tour of the city. Our driver and guide were knowledgeable about EVERYTHING Chicago and the luxury sprinter van was comfortable for our entire party! Highly recommend this tour!

Well, this is the way to see Chicago. This tour provides all of the highlights of Chicago will plenty of time to top and soak it in. It is fast paced yet not hurried. I am a fan of private tours. For me, this is the best way to see a city. This was the best of many great private tours that i have experienced. I felt like a VIP. At the conclusion of the tour, I felt well acquainted with the City.

My husband and I did the classic city tour. Our guide Matt and driver Andrea were very nice and knowledgeable. It was very informative and entertaining. We were able to see the city in a short period of time. Would def recommend if short on time.

Our guide, Todd, was super nice and knowledgeable. We loved being able to pick and choose where we go, for example we drove by the biggest Starbucks in the world (5 stories) and wanted to go in. So we stopped there and Todd went in with us for about 20 minutes. So fun!We asked to get dropped off at the Willis Tower after the tour (2pm) to go see the Sky Deck, but sadly they didn’t have tickets until 4:45pm which was too late for us. My only suggestion for improvement would be to let people know, if they want to go up, to buy tickets online at the start of the tour and then when they get dropped off there they can do it right at 2pm.

We decided to take a private tour due to the fact that my sister had a fractured hip and could not get around very well. The price was a little more expensive than the big bus tours, but so worth it. They picked us up where we were having lunch and we had a large van to ourselves. Matthew and TJ were great, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We were able to customize the tour and little and skip some things that we had already been to and didn't care to see again and we were able to stop at places that we were interested in. At the end of the tour they took us to where my nephew worked so that we could meet up with him and they let us to wait in the van till he got there. We were so happy we decided to do this tour and recommend it highly.

This private tour is totally worth it! We had a driver and a guide take us around various parts of the city in a very spacious Landrover. Matt our guide was very knowledgeable and Harold our driver was great at maneuvering around the traffic which there was a lot of during the Memorial Day weekend. We definitely recommend this tour. It is a must do when in Chicago.
