The highlight of our long weekend trip to Chicago was the history and architecture tour we took with Chicago Private Tours. We are a family with 10-, 12-, and 14-year-old kids, and Matt had no problem keeping them engaged and entertained for the full three hours (and that's saying something with my kids.) Jim was our driver, and we felt... More

From corresponding with Andrea to make the arrangements, to pick up times (we asked to be picked up at Union Station as we took a commuter train in that day), to... More

Fantastic tour. Tour guide Joe and driver Vic were wonderful. We got an amazing overview of Chicago. Joe is extremely informative and brought the history of Chicago to life. Also one of the most comfortable touring vehicles we’ve ever been in.
