This was our first time ever doing a bus tour anywhere, I wasn't really sure what to expect but it was easily one of my favorite parts of the trip! We went to every stop mentioned on the booking site, as well as an extra stop at a super cute lil farm next to the Zoo, so one of the bus guests could use the restroom. Our tour guide (I wish I could remember his name, he was from California!) was sooo nice and funny and informative! I loved that he made it feel very cozy and fun and not too commercial or "touristy" lol! The pacing of the tour was excellent. My friends and I seriously had a blast and got the best photos of our whole weekend there. The best perk was that the bus picked us up and dropped us off directly in front of our downtown hotel. 10/10 seriously recommend.

*Also if you are a person of size like myself, the bus was divided into two seats on one side, and one seat on the other side, with a row of four or five seats in the back. The back seats are a little small but the single seats should be comfortable for most everyone. I had no issues getting on and off the bus.

Knowledge and witty, Rick was an ideal guide to introduce us to Chicago and the major sights.

Taken very early on in our stay, this tour was an ideal way to get to grips with the layout of the city, meaning that we could get a good idea of what we wanted to see, where we wanted to spend more time and where the sights were in relation to each other and our hotel - a sort of whistle stop mental map.

So, as an introduction, it was spot on. On top of that, discussion covered not only what to see, but also where to eat (Lou Malnati’s was a great call!).

The minibus was comfortable and roomy, with plenty of access to the enormous windows, and even Rick’s jokes went well beyond the usual cringeworthy Dad jokes, being laugh-out-loud actual funny. 😂

We’ll recommended, and money we’ll spent.

Rick was so knowledgeable, personable, and made the experience an incredibly enriching one for everyone on our bus. The fact that he could make a rainy day tour an enjoyable one is a testament to his skills as a guide. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone coming to the city!

Great way to start our trip to Chicago. Our guide was prompt with our hotel pickup even though our hotel was not on the list. Off we went getting terrific stories about buildings, personalities, Chicago neighborhoods with witty commentary the entire time! This is the perfect way to start your visit to the Windy City; we even recommended it to our son who lives in Chicago. We have taken many city bus tours but I would make this the best one we have ever taken. I think the fact that you are on a small bus and your driver is not a disembodied voice over a microphone added to making this seem like you were riding with a knowledgeable friend. Highly recommend this tour!

Best city tour I’ve taken by far. Rick provided us with a lot of history, humor, restaurant recommendations and most importantly allowed us to get off and take pictures. Without feeling rushed. I highly recommend this tour.

Be prepared to learn much about Chicago's past as you tour many famous areas of this amazing city! Rick will keep you highly entertained with his narration of the tour and stories about the history of Chicago. I was suprised that he has only lived here about 15 years as his knowledge of the city would make you think he was a life long resident. You cant go wrong with this tour!!

I went on this tour with my mom who was visiting Chicago for the first time. It’s the perfect way to see all the city’s main sights if you’re short on time. Our tour guide Rick was super knowledgeable and his sense of humor made the tour extra fun. He also stopped at several locations to allow us to hop off the bus and take a few pictures. Highly recommend this tour and if possible try to book one with Rick as your guide—he’s awesome! :)

This was the best tour on our trip of 5 cities. He gave us a great description of the city and also some historical highlights. The tour was reasonably priced, went to all the stops, and he gave us time to get out and look around.
Then the next day we went on the Hop on Hop off bus that was terrible. (See my review there.) Make sure you go on Chicago City Minibus Tour, it's worth it!!!

Our tour guide, Rick, showed up on time and whisked us away on a fun, informative tour of Chicago. We hadn't been to Chicago before, so this was a great fit. A quick way to see everything in just under two hours. He has a good sense of humour, and we never felt rushed at the stops along the way. We said we would definitely do the tour again in summer on a future visit to the city.
