Chicago is my home town. This was a great way to show off my town and teach my grand kids about Chicago. Getting off and finding where to get back on was greatly explained and pointed out to us.

Great Job on the Tour! Luca and Kim did a great job navigating and telling us about the local stuff that makes Chicago great. I’m local and have lived here for over 30 years and still enjoyed it as did my Sister in Law and niece from Wisconsin... thumbs up!

We didn't have a ton of time in Chicago and had done these bus tours in other cities and it didn't disappoint. It was a great way to see everything and choose 1-2 things to get out and see more of for the day.

This is the best way to get the lay of the land. It was so nice not to try to drive and sight see. I really enjoyed the Navy Pier. As we were traveling we saw Eataly. I had heard about it so we hopped off and walked over to enjoy the incredible foods. It was easy to hop back on and get to our car.

We always make an effort to ride the hop on hop off bus on the next day of our arrival when we travel. It gives you a panoramic view of the city, an insight that will prove valuable in guiding you to other points of interest on your own. The guide was people friendly and very helpful when we ask questions pertaining to specific location of interest. We have never been disappointed. We highly recommend this bus tour. It is a fool-proof way of learning and seeing around the city. Enjoy!

Great value for money, great way to see all of the tourist sites before you decide where to get off. We went round the whole way and then stopped off where we wanted.

A great tour. We did this on our first day in Chicago in order to get familiar with the city. One of the best things we did. Darias, our driver was so much fun. Sam was our tour guide and he was fantastic. Also met Antone who was a ticket agent and had a great conversation
with him. Just a great company and would like to find out more info if this company is available in other cities because I will definitely use them again.
