    Thanks so much for the late afternoon tours - Cat was such a ball of energy and an insightful guide. She made the tour so much fun. Appreciate the tidbits and enactment of Dillinger’s story - very interesting:)

    This was a great tour with different features and narration than the hop on hop off tour during the day. It is difficult to find the starting place, so arrive early and ask around. There's a sign that says Big Bus, but it doesn't indicate it's where the sunset bus starts. The worst experience was that MANY tree limbs smacked people on the upper deck as we drove by. There was really no way to avoid them without literally lying on the seat. If I had not had on glasses, I probably would have had serious eye damage. Not sure if it's the City's responsibility or the bus company's, but someone must trim those limbs!

    Our tour went off without a hitch.Jake picked us up on time and was an excellent and informative guide.The architectural boat tour is a must and a sampling of the other parks and sites was well planned.

    I booked this tour to gain positive insight into Chicago from the African-American perspective. Mr. Steve Johnson was very engaging, entertaining, and personable. He is knowledgeable about the history of Chicago and the contributions African Americans made in Chicago. A LOT OF PEOPLE will enjoy this tour. The cons” The tour stated to end the tour at a soul food restaurant, we did not experience that when we asked; The guide did not know what we were referring to. Secondly, it was longer than anticipated. Overall, a good tour and good experience!

    Fantastic tour and wonderful, nice tour guide! I highly recommend.

    When I travel I often take a tour of the area that I am visiting. I have taken many tours across the country, including several of Chicago. I had never visited Chicago’s South Side so, when I came across this tour, I booked it. I am so glad I did! I learned and saw so much that I was totally blown away. But what made it such a great tour was the gentleman who drove me around, Mr. Steve Johnson. He was so friendly and accommodating that I felt that I had made a friend. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone who wants to see more of Chicago than just the Magnificent Mile and the beautiful downtown architecture. There is so much more to Chicago than that! Thank you again, Mr. Johnson!

    Just went this pass Saturday, it was good and interesting however in the post it says there would be bathroom break and can get something to eat during this 3 hour tour-nothing was bought up either about bathroom breaks or eating.
