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

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

We wanted to get a quick city tour during our long stopover at O'Hare Airport. I had booked Chicago Private Tours based on the positive reviews here on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Booking the trip was easy, Andrea replied quickly to my emails and was helpful. The driver was there to pick us up on time, he was... More

Explore Chicago with style. Indeed, the tour was spectacular and we enjoyed exclusive access to what makes Chicago an exciting, scenic, and diverse city. The tour guide (Joe) was extraordinary knowledgeable and engaging. The piece de resistance was the smile on my children's face followed by a tight hug thanking us (parents) for the adventure. Priceless.

We traveled with CPT in May. We combined the airport pickup with the City Tour, which worked very well. We were able to take the tour first thing during our first Chicago visit, which was a great orientation, as well as have our luggage secure in the back of the vehicle we were travelling in, and arrived at our hotel...
