    This was great viewing of Chicago and local areas from atop a bus. Enjoyed the history of the different areas through the years and seeing the different architecture each possessed. The ninety minutes went fast, perfect amount of time for a tour.

    Our guide Mike the map guy was super knowledgeable and friendly. This was a great tour and we learned a lot. We went through 5 historic neighborhoods and got to see a lot of Chicago. Very impressed with the quality of this tour.
