I was so intrigued by this tour that I made a reservation as a solo guest. What attracted me to this tour were the movie clips that are shown as we ride to each destination. The entire outfit is not elegant with flat screen TVs and reclining seats. Instead, there is a mounted tube TV with an attached media player.... More

My husband and I took this tour as we are movie fans but also it was our first morning in Chicago and a great way to see around the city and get your bearings. The guide Patrick was really good, and it was great to see the film clip whilst actually driving through the scene at the same time. I... More

This film tour was great! We were on the 10:30am tour(found a 2 for the price of 1 on groupon). The tour is lead by the film critic Patrick McDonald. You ride around the city in an older bus and he shows you important landmarks in Chicago film along with tons of famous scenes from tons of movies. The bus... More

Yes, I was 2 minutes late. I'll take responsibility for that but who ever heard of a tour in Chicago that left on the dot and what tour would leave a paid customer when they are only 1/2 block away?!? I dropped my friend at the meeting spot 10 minutes early and went to park nearby. She was standing there... More

I purchased this film tour months in advance. It looked like it would be a ton of fun. I was wrong. To begin with the bus was dirty. Not that there was trash everywhere, but the seats and anywhere you had to put your hands or body on, was covered in grime. It wasn't just my seat, or my companions.... More

The tour is good if your a film buff. The tour guide is a film critic and speaks well and is quite funny and personable. I gave it average because the front screen where they show the movie clips did not work very well, the microphone worked on an off, but mostly because you could not take any decent pictures... More

We enjoyed this tour. Pickup was prompt on the sidewalk next to the Rock and Roll McDonalds. It was fun to see the clips and then see the spots. I read in another review that you should sit on the left side and it was true. Most of the sights were on the left and I got some good pictures.... More

We were very happy we took the Chicago Movie Tour when we were in Chicago, it was very entertaining, highly informative and we were lucky with our guide Patrick MacDonald. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining and very enthusiastic and passionate about movies and Chicago in general and about movies in Chicago in particular. You get to see a huge amount... More

I stood in the freezing cold waiting for this tour, one I was really looking forward to. 12:30 rolls around no bus. 12:45, no bus. 1pm No Bus!!. I had to call the company to find out it had been cancelled due to problems with the bus. I have very limited time in town and hanging out in the cold... More

I bought a groupon to check out this tour, at half of the regular $15. It was worth $15, but not $30. Why? The bus you travel in seldom slows down at various landmarks, so you can't snap a photo. Guys, slow down or just stop more often. Let us soak in the place. On the plus side, the tour... More
