Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wasn’t necessary to buy 2 tickets. Should’ve been more clear that there was no set place to park and where the starting point was.

Since this is a walking tour along Chicago’s Riverwalk, we don’t have parking or other car-related information. If you accidentally booked two tours, we’re always happy to refund the unused one. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the actual tour!
