    This was one of the best tours we've been on, and we've been on walking tours in Europe, South America, and all over the U.S. Our guide, Tom, was knowledge, professional, entertaining, and personable. We requested a special tour based on our varied interests, and he was spot on! He provided interesting sights, history, and varied experiences that included art, sports, and culture. I highly recommend this company and guide!

    We just signed on when the group was gathering at Harry Carey’s. It was a beautiful evening for a walk so half of our party decided to do the ghost tour including our 14 yr old grandson who thought it was great fun. It was about half pub crawl, half Chicago mob history.

    You have a few options for drinks here. You can do the Potion Experience (where you can make the drinks yourself witchy style), regular table reservation (you'll order drinks), or you can sit at the bar.

    We got there ten minutes before our reservation, but didn't actually sit and start until about 30 minutes after. It was a bit confusing know where to wait, and what to do once you sit down. Before the reservation is called, one person in every group gets to choose the wand for the experience.

    When your reservation is called (we did the Potion Experience), you are guided into this large room and sat down at a long table that's shared with other people. You're given a paper packet that has instructions on how to make each drink. Before making the drinks, you're brought back up and guided into another room where you get your "intro" drink and then brought back into the potion-making room. You're guided by a "professor" who gives you hints and advice on making the drinks.

    The drink making experience is fun, but it's so rushed, and the staff were constantly running around trying to fulfill requests. The experience is supposed to be 1 hour and 45 mins, but it ends up being around an hour. You can definitely go at your own pace, but the room is super loud, people are running around, and it's hectic. It's not really a place to relax and enjoy the drink you just made--you kind of want to finish sooner than later.

    It would be nice if it was a bit quieter in the potion making room, or allow less people in there at once. It was chaos.

    This is a scam, do not book. Jason will ask for your money upfront and once paid never respond or show up on the day you booked him for. Plenty of other options, do not go with this scammer.

    This 90 minute architecture boat tour departs from River City Marina, 900 South Wells Street where there is a convenient parking lot. We loved that the tour went partly into the south and north branches of the Chicago River and as far east as Navy Pier by the locks. Views of the buildings and city are gorgeous--have your camera ready. The Summer of George was our boat, and Javier was our very knowledgeable and humorous tour guide. Upper deck outdoor seating is plentiful and best for viewing. There is an indoor seating option if weather is inclement. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase, and there are lavatories. Enjoy!
