My wife and I took the tour on Sun. 9/21/14 with six friends. Rick as our guide is a Chicago historical stand up act. Rick went through the history of the city while asking questions along the way with prize incentives for correct answers. The interaction is a very nice touch. We had brunch midway through and Rick kept the... More

Dan was an amazing guide from the minute he met us. He was thorough in understanding exactly what we wanted to see and learn. He surprised us with things we had never heard of, buildings inside and out, stories that will help us remember what we saw and brought the city to life as it was in the past. I... More

It was a fantastic tour on a fantastic day (can't promise, however, that the weather is always as favorable, although Rick told us it was 72 degrees with low humidity 365 days a year in Chicago -- that was one element of the tour...

Dan OConnell's historical tour of Chicago is awesome - both entertaining and informative. I've lived in Chicago many years and learned so much. He is a great storyteller and you can tell he value excellence because he has put a lot of preparation and effort into this 2 1/2 hour experience. Definately worth the price!

We recently went on a private tour led by Dan O’Connell. We had a group of about 12 people – we could have easily had more people as Dan was very accommodating. The price is right compared to what a private tour would have been on a boat! We were given the full VIP treatment- or at least we felt... More

I recently went on Dan’s Brunch Tour. He was a great tour guide: educated us AND made us laugh, not to mention the Brunch at Houlihan’s was fantastic. We think we got a fantastic deal and really enjoyed the day and the pace of the tour. We walked for a bit, had brunch and toured some more, learning so much... More

I took Chicago's Finest River Walking Disaster and Tragedy Tour. I have to admit I was entertained listening to the darker side of Chicago. Our tour guide, Sharon kept my attention as she told and took us to the sites where some of Chicago's worst disasters took place. It was very entertaining and what I thought was most captivating was... More
