We had a short amount of time to spend in Chicago. I knew that a tour was the way to go and I am glad I chose Chicago Private! We were in town on June 10 and wanted to be picked up after our architecture tour on the river. Matthew was there shortly after the boat returned and TJ, our... More

We had a family reunion in Chicago and booked Chicago Private Tours for a 13-person tour. We were picked up by TJ, a true gentleman, in a luxurious Mercedes van with very comfortable seats and spent the next four hours being both educated and highly entertained by Matt. Matt's obvious love for Chicago is only surpassed by his deep knowledge... More

The tour guide, Natalie, was fantastic. She was very in-tune to what we wanted to do. She even stopped and let us enjoy a glass of wine. This was the perfect way to see all of the major sites during a very short trip.

We took a four hr tour of the city that included stops at Lincoln Park Conservatory, Wrigley Field, "the bean," and Lake Michigan. Along the way, Matt provided engaging information about the history of Chicago and... More

We traveled as a family (including our 11 and 13-year-old sons) to Chicago for Spring Break and started with this tour. It was perfect. The tour gave us a great overview of Chicago history, its architecture and a flavor of the city. We went to areas (Lincoln Park Conservatory) that we would not have otherwise visited as we did not...

We hosted a friend from Montreal and I didn't want to spend the entire time playing tour guide. Matthew and TJ with Chicago Private Tours were excellent! Loved the clean, well accommodated private bus. They took us to many well known places and even a few I haven't sent. Matthew did a great job giving us the facts about each... More

What an awesome tour this was! From the moment that we were picked up from our hotel (early, to boot) to the moment we were dropped off again four hours later, this was such a fun and informative attraction! Even my teenage son and daughter stated how much fun they had as soon as they got out of the car!... More

Staying in Hyde Park

Neighborhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
