We took the River Walk & Loop Tour. I live here, but had family in from out of town. The tour was great, with lots of interesting facts about Chicago's history. Sharon was a very knowledgeable guide, pleasant and attentive. Each person receives a good quality headset so that you can hear the guide over the "city sounds". This tour... More

You can relive the sheer amazement of Chicago's Columbian Exhibition (1893) and Century of Progress (1933) in one delightful, classy three hour bus and (not difficult mile) Sunday afternoon walking tour. Now booking once a month through October. The culinary surprises, terrific guide books to take home, comfy ride to the site of the 1893 fair and around the lakefront... More

Dan O'Connell did a wonderful job touring us along the Chicago River Walk last Saturday - would recommend the experience to anyone visiting Chicago for the first time or long-time residents of the city!! Not only did we see Chicago from a different perspective but also were entertained with amusing antidotes all along the way!

After reading all the great reviews, my group of four decided on this tour over an architectural foundation one. Wrong choice! The tour was so disappointing! The tour leader (obviously not Dan) was hard to hear over the traffic noise and not that inspiring or interesting. She kept saying "I meant to tell you this" or " I should have... More

Had a great time on the Riverwalk Brunch Tour with our tour host Rick. He was very knowledgeable and was very good at telling the inside stories and unknown tidbits of information about Chicago's rich history. Even though the tour was three hours (1 hour tour, brunch, 1 more hour) it went by like a flash. Rick was entertaining and... More

Went on the Riverwalk/Brunch Tour with 5 friends. We all loved it. From beginning to end Dan kept us informed and entertained with great stories of Chicago's present and past. We've lived in Chicago for over 60 years but Dan taught us things we never knew. The food was excellent and we were given plenty of time for a nice... More

We took the roaring twenties tour with Dan and it was fantastic. Luckily we read other reviews and got a groupon deal which I I have to say paid itself in the first 15min of the tour. Dan was a fantastic well informed and enthusiastic guide. He was so excited by the topic and eagerly shared his knowledge with us.... More

This was a highly informative history tour. It met all my expectations. Although a very hot day for the 2 1/2 hour walk, it was well paced for a group of all ages. Especially liked the feeling of standing in the places where so much history occurred. Our guide, Rick, was very knowledgeable and entertaining as he shared his love... More

We so enjoyed the Riverwalk and Brunch Tour lead by Dan O Connell this morning. A mix of history, architectural info, humor and trivia questions with a pleasant brunch. ....He made learning fun and the time flew by. We look forward to another tour with this company and hope we are lucky enough to have Dan as our guide again.
