Great way to see and learn about Chicago. Our guide, Joe M. and drive, "TJ" B. were very knowledgeable, accommodating and service-oriented. We had two days booked. The first was the city tour and we got a really nice overview of the city, the history, and the architecture. We had time to stop at a couple of places to walk... More

It was our first visit to Chicago. The tour is flexible with an exclusive guide. For us it is an exploratory trip. Our guide Joe is very knowledgable and gave us a sample of all the important places in Chicago. I am determined to come back for a detailed visit to Chicago and it was mainly due to Joe who... More

We took a private tour on the first day of a five-day visit. It provided us a great overview of the major sites, the history, plus a sense of what Chicago is like. Matt is an entertaining and knowledgeable guide, who was able to keep everyone interested, including our teenage daughter. Although primarily a driving tour, we were able to... More

Labor Day happened to be our first full day in Chicago and we were punctually greeted by our guide Joe (Meyers) and driver Dic. Everything was perfect and Joe is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. We also appreciated the great skylight in the van, which is perfect for picture taking of Chicago's grand skyscrapers. We highly recommend this company to anyone... More

Thinking that our 6-hour layover in Chicago would allow for a nice 3-4 hour tour we decided to book with Chicago Private Tours. Unfortunately our train was delayed several hours getting into Chicago, which ended up cutting our tour in half. Still, I feel like we got as good of an overview of the city as possible in that timeframe.... More

My wife and I flew into Chicago a day early for a business meeting. We wanted to get a taste of Chicago since we only had one free day. We searched around online and reading reviews and we chose Chicago Private tours. We called two days before we arrived and they were able to accommodate us and work around our... More

I had explained in advance that we had one handicapped person in the group and that we wanted to have lunch in Chinatown during part of the 4 hour tour (something fast and good). Unfortunately, this was not planned well because our guide took us first to a restaurant with no reservations, stairs (impossible!) and no elevator, and a waiting... More

Thank you for your review. We always strive to give 5 star service and are very sorry you felt like you received less than that on your tour. Your tour was booked the night before your requested departure time of 9:30 am. With short notice, we accommodated your desired date and time. Once we were informed that a member of... More

We scheduled a tour for 4 people, one of us wasn't as mobile as the rest. They met us in the lobby of our hotel and loaded us into a little bus which was very comfortable. Off we went for a 4 hour tour of the city of Chicago. The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and personable. If there was... More
