Very enjoyable and informative tour through the Loop area.

The tour was very enjoyable and informative. Our tour guide was Connor and our group was 14 people. We went to maybe 10 locations in the Loop area. Stories about Al Capone and his gang highlighted by locations still present. Several tragedies were told about at their locations including the SS Eastland sinking and Iroquois theater fire. Tour took a break at the historic Palmer House hotel which has many very ornate decorations. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the stories interesting.

One of the most informative and enjoyable tours we’ve done

One of the most informative, interesting and enjoyable tours we’ve done in a long time . Bree was our tour guide .she was great , very informative , answered all our questions and was just and all over wealth of knowledge. We’d surely do another tour with her and your company. We tell everybody we know how is visiting Chicago . We where there for our 65 th birthday.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable with great background informatio

Really good information about the Chicago crime and mob, however, a video to go along with the presentation would have been great to show what the buildings looked like, since so many of them are no longer standing, as the driver gets to the place where it once stood.

Wonderfully unexpected. Fantastic educational experience!

Our guide David was personable, intelligent and highly knowledgeable. The entire crew was professional, fun and well trained. Make sure you enjoy this cruise on your visit to Chicago, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks to everyone for showing us your beautiful city.

Good for getting an overview of the downtown Chicago area

Our guide Rick was entertaining and knowledgeable. Also accommodating- let us change our tour time for earlier in the day. Found it helpful to get us familiar with the area, which we returned to the next day. Very limited stops- more of a drive by kind of tour.
