We went on the City Tour with Matt and TJ. The van was very comfortable and the tour was comprehensive, fun and informative. I had a sprained ankle and Matt and TJ went out of their way to assist me in and out of the van. All in all we loved the tour and will contact Chicago Private Tours the... More

Three of us were more than comfortable in a glass topped van. We saw so much of the city, especially as it was on a Sunday and there was little traffic to slow us down. The guide was very knowledgeable and offered us chances to step out to take photos and explore. Highly recommended!

We used Chicago Private Tours for our very short trip to Chicago. The service from the initial booking enquiry with Darrilyn through to the very end if the trip was just fantastic. Matt, TJ and Mike were all brilliant. Mike was so informative on our morning tour and they all went out of their way to make us feel so... More

While in Chicago in Oct 2013, I booked my second tour with Chicago Private Tours, requesting Matt and TJ who did the private tour the first time in May 2013. I brought different family members with me for both tours, so I changed the tour route somewhat to suit the tastes of my family members on the second tour. Matt... More

My family and I had the pleasure of taking a city tour with Mike and Matt. They were awesome! They took the time to answer every question we threw at them and added extra sights we wanted to see but were not originally on the tour route. I really appreciated them taking us to Soldier Field so that my son... More

My husband, two children (17 and 14) and I went on a 4 hour tour with Matt and T.J in November. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We had the best time. They both made sure that both my children enjoyed the tour. We recommend this tour to anyone. This is definitely the best and only way to see... More

Great experience with Matthew and TJ! Matthew is a talking encyclopedia of all things Chicago. And TJ and Matthew have a great rapport and clearly enjoy what they do. We asked to see some specific off the beaten path sites while on the tour and Matthew and TJ adjusted the tour on the spot and did not miss a beat.... More

I took the evening city mini-tour with mother in early December. It was literally freezing outside and we needed something warm to do. I can't say enough about the experience we had. We were greeted at our downtown hotel by our guide about 10min prior to the start. The driver arrived exactly on time. The bus/van that we had was... More
