We did the loop and Millenium Park Tour with Mel and this was a great introduction to Chicago. The tour was just the right length , very well organised and included some indoor sights as a welcome respite from the chilly weather.
Mel had a wealth of information and invaluable tips about places to eat and visit which she shared via e mail which was so helpful.
A morning very well spent

We did the river walk on a Saturday at 1300. Michael who was our guide was on time and was very welcoming. The group numbered around 20 however he always felt like he was keeping you engaged . His knowledge of Chicago and the buildings was brilliant. The weather was very cold with the wind however he kept the tour fun and informative. Can’t recommend this tour and him highly enough.

We had a visitor from Scotland. He wanted to see some of the city so we booked a tour with this group. Having been born and raised in the Chicago area, I thought I knew it all but was pleased to learn some new bits of trivia.

Our tour leaders, Mel and Emir, where fantastic. They spoke loud enough for all to hear and did an excellent job managing our group of 20 or so. They did this in weather conditions that were cold and windy. How appropriate for a Windy City tour.

I would book a tour again with these guys in a heartbeat. If you want to get a little lay of the land so to speak, this would be a good choice. Pay attention to the weather so you know what to wear and be ready to do some walking.

We took the tour started at 10am. Our guides were Emir and Mel. They are great couple with great energy. I’ve done many free walking tours all around the world. I wasn’t expecting much from Chicago, but this tour amazed me. They gave us suprising facts about Chicago. I started to recommend this tour every person i know who lives in Chicago.
