On our recent visit to Chicago, four of us took the Historic Walking Tour of Chicago, led by Rick Zieman. It was a great tour. Rick is informative, witty, and considerate of all our needs. He packed loads of information and great views into 2 1/2 hours all the while looking out for us on this beautiful but hot Saturday.... More

Dan is awesome! I hosted my family reunion this weekend and reached out to Chicago's Finest Tours for a private bus tour of the Southside. The tour was 3 hours long and we spent half the time downtown and the other half on the Southside. Dan was very knowledgeable in both areas and I was very excited to learn new... More

After 4 very exciting and fun filled days at the Origami Owl convention, I was exhausted and really would have cancelled going on this tour if I hadn't already paid for it. So, I dragged myself out of bed and off we went. I am so glad we did! This tour was fantastic! Rick was a very knowledgeable tour guide!... More

Went on the the Sunday 7/26/15 tour with guide Richard Zieman and it was a fantastic 3 hours. The tour is very well planned with benches and shade in the locations the guide stops to talk. Lots of interesting information even for native Chicagoans, beautiful river views, and gift card giveaways for Chicago trivia questions. At the halfway mark brunch... More

Dan, our guide, is entertaining and has so much trivia about the south side of Chicago. It is where blues and jazz were born. An interesting fact: when the Beatles were coming to the US, a reporter asked John Lennon who he would like to meet. He said Muddy Waters who lived in Chicago.

This tour was informative and entertaining. Our tour guide Dan was very knowledgeable and kept everyone on the tour interested. Tour had fun facts as well as historical insights into Chicago's South side. We enjoyed it and are looking forward to our next tour with Chicago Finest Tours.

One of the best tours that I have been a part of. Our tour guide was Dan. He was knowledgable and made the tour fun and engaging. Most importantly, everyone on the tour appeared to walk away with a greater appreciation and newly found awareness for the contributions that have come from Chicago's past and present. Highly recommended.

If you can walk, and do stairs, this is the tour for you. 2 1/2 hours, all along the Chicago River. Rick, our tour guide was excellent, and I would highly recommend this tour. We were in a group of about 20 people, and I was concerned about all of us hearing Rick's information, however, it wasn't a problem, his... More

We enjoyed this interesting & entertaining tour and learnt so much about Chicago’s colourful history. Our tour was small (4 of us plus another couple) and started in the Radison Blu hotel where we were greeted by Dan who gave us each a coupon for a free cup of coffee before we headed off to the river. The tour was... More
