Took the Chicago History Tour Plus tour with my wife on 8 September which we both thoroughly enjoyed. We learned so much of the history of the city in a fun and entertaining way. If you are in Chicago and want to go on a walking tour then we would not hesitate to recommend Chicago's Finest Tours

Dan was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide for the Chicago Pedway tour. I highly recommend this "off the beaten path" tour of the extensive pedestrian walkway, especially for Chicagoans.

My family and I went on the Riverwalk Tour on 09/13/14. Dan (our tour guide) was excellent and the food at Houlihan was excellent. We want to come back and see what other tours are available. Thanks for a wonderful time.

He was well versed and kept us intrigued while making it fun and entertaining. We each got a booklet with pictures to guide us through the various areas and events (... More
