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...

My Mom, sister and I were lucky enough to get the Joe (guide) and TJ (driver) combo. on our recent visit to Chicago. We were having a great trip but were a little on edge due to my Mom (who is 70) being scheduled for knee replacement surgery the week after our visit to Chicago for my cousin's wedding. My... More

My husband and I have been to Chicago several times, but we have never done a tour. We arrived in town ahead of schedule today and wanted to be able to see parts of town that we couldn't get to on foot. We were also traveling with another couple that had never been here before. At noon today, we called... More

Our Chicago Private Tour was just what we wanted – the opportunity see and do what WE wanted to see and do in our limited time. We appreciated the very quick response to our request for a tour, and realise what effort went into that quick response, within a few hours. Matthew was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic... More

Our guide Matthew met us with much enthusiam at the designated location. Our driver Vic was friendly and agreeable to our "in-route" changes. We had a limited time but were able to see more of the City than we had hoped for, and were returned to our departure location right on time. Matthew asked us if we wanted to walk... More

We did a two hour mini tour with Chicago Private Tours, it was wonderful. We had four people including my elderly grandmother. The small bus picks you up from your hotel. Our tour guide was entertaining and informative. The driver drove the bus so smoothly my sister who is prone to motion sickness had zero issues. They were very accommodating... More
