Amazing tour, knowledgeable tour guide, and what a beautiful city!
Hugo O.Chicago Grand Half-Day Tour March 2, 2017
This would have been a great trip were it not for the fact that we were unable to understand half of what the driver was saying. He was extremely knowledgeable and the parts I did catch were fantastic but I had to tune out most of the time as it was such a strain to try and piece together what he said. He just spoke too fast at the end of his sentences and with the accent/way he spoke, which was obviously just the way they speak from where he came from, it was just a pity it affected our ability to completely enjoy the trip. I would however recommend the trip if you have only a few hours to spare as you do get a great flavour of Chicago from it.

I have taken this tour before and each time I learn something new. This time it came with Chicago 360 tickets.
The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable and accommodating. Unfortunately, there was too many clouds to have a view from the city, but that's okay. When you go to the Cathedral, go to the front door and enter. It's well worth seeing the architecture which is SUPERB.
If it's overcast and cloudy, skip going to the Chicago 360 and go another day. The ticket is good for one year and we went the next day when it was nice and sunny with beautiful views!!

Excellent adventure for a Windy City newbie.
Maria .Chicago Grand Tour and Hancock Observatory January 21, 2017
This is perfect for first time visitors to Chicago our guide was knowledgeable. We get a general overview of the city and it's history. We got to go to all the neighborhoods and they gave us about 10-15 minutes to take pictures in popular tourist spots. Ended by going to the John Hancock Observatory to see the amazing views of Chicago!

The tour as far as what we saw was great. Our tour guide was the worse! Can't say what the other guides are like but our was so boring several people fell asleep. He just droned on and on.

Larry R.Chicago Grand Half-Day Tour September 15, 2016
The tour was nice. It could probably have been compressed into 2.5 hours or 3 at the most. The north side tour was best, especially being able to disembark the bus and walk around Lincoln Park. The southside tour was not quite as interesting, although it was good to see where the Obama's lived. The driver was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly.

Jean M.Chicago Grand Half-Day Tour July 2, 2016
I only had 1 day in Chicago and this tour was the best 4 hour tour as it took you to through all the main attractions that the city had to offer. Our tour guide Manny and drive Anton were both very knowledgeable and also super friendly which made me feel very welcome from my first step on the bus to my last step off. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is pressed for time when in Chicago.

We took your tour the first day of our visit and used the introduction all week long. Our driver was very knowledgeable and full of good humor. The stops were good photo ops and refreshing. I highly recommend the tour as a great overview.
Julie H.Chicago Grand Half-Day Tour June 13, 2016
Loved our driver! Wish we had more than two times we got off the bus, but we got to see things I never expected, such as Ferris Beuller's house and the Playboy Mansion.
Kenneth P.Chicago City Tour with River Cruise June 7, 2016

Hooman K.Chicago Grand Tour and Hancock Observatory April 24, 2016
A great tour, the tour guide was so informative and very interesting to listen to! The really covered all of Chicago.
Mark C.Chicago Grand Tour and Hancock Observatory September 15, 2015
The Tour guide was very knowledgeable and the bus driver was excellent at navigating some of the narrow streets of Chicago. Perhaps, a bus similar to the Chicago Trolley bus may be better for those people who want to take photographs. Despite this fact, I feel I have a better understanding of the geography of Chicago due to the excellent tour guide.
Polly C.Chicago Grand Tour and Hancock Observatory June 22, 2015
This tour was excellent. Our bus driver Pat was very good and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
We saw the North and South side of Chicago and were also able to get off the bus and take pictures and
walk to areas of interest. I highly recommend this tour. It is well worth the money!
