Thank you for the most wonderful experiences in San Francisco and Sausalito as well as Chicago. Robin met us at the pier in San Francisco and whisked us away to see as much as we could for our short day there. His knowledge, professionalism, and courteousness was exemplary. We experienced Lombard Street, the steps, Billionaires’ Row, the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Sausalito with lunch at the Trident and much more. Another plus was his photography skills. He took pictures of my husband and I together on the tour, which was greatly appreciated. This is the way to visit and experience new places. The day before our Chicago tour, Marlin texted and met us the morning of for coffee. We had booked a morning Architectural Boat Tour. He sat with us and asked if there was anything that we really wanted to see and do. Of course we wanted a Chicago Hot Dog and I knew my husband would love to visit a recycling facility as that is the line of business that we are in. Marlin did not disappoint. I have a limited mobility and he made sure we found the best way to the boat tour entrance. While we were gone he researched to find a recycling facility for us to visit. We saw a lot of Chicago, got our Chicago Hot Dog, and the highlight was the recycling facility complete with an auto shredder. Even Marlin enjoyed this new experience. We were blessed with his photography skills as well. I may need to make 2 digital scrapbooks to fit all my pictures in. Marlin also was an excellent story teller of the history of Chicago, professional, courteous and provided us with an awesome experience. I look forward to using Bespoke Experiences again when the need arises.

Group of 13 people, architects and engineers. We took a bus and walking tour with Liz who was very knowledgable, friendly and had plenty of interesting stories to tell us about the city history, architecture and anecdotes. She took us to a great place for well-known Chicago pizza at lunch time :-) ! I would warmly recommend Bespoke Experiences for small or large groups who want to see a maximum of essential things in short time visit.

Marlin went above and beyond in his sharing of Chicago's many great attractions. He took us to the top of Willis (Sears) Tower early in the morning when there were NO lines. We prowled through U505 at the Museum of Science and Industry (again avoiding the crowds), Then we saw the graves of Al Capone and Jesse Owens to cover the hoodlums to heros. And much more. His enthusiasm really added to our tour!

We spent a lovely day customized just for us visiting architectural landmarks of our choosing with a guide whose knowledge and expertise was spot on. I also had requested a lunch location that served nice wine. Well they knocked the ball out of the park on that one. They selected a lovely little venue that had an epicurean menu and St. Emilion Grand Cru and Chateauneuf du Pape by the glass. It was a hot day and it was a plus being dropped at the front door of places we visited and the guide tended to the car while we started our tour. All the tickets were pre-arranged and everything was seamless. This was truly a VIP experience. Many thanks to Jennifer and her team and a special thank you to Mr. Cole our guide!... 5-stars start to finish! Liz and Neil

Thank you, Elizabeth and Neil, for this excellent review of your time with us in Chicago. We're thrilled Jerry provided an excellent overview of the city based on our thorough interview of you and your husband prior to your arrival.The city has so many wonderful restaurants and sites to explore that knowing how to pare them down to the best and most interesting, specific to your unique needs, is what truly separates us from the masses. We hope you're able to visit us in any of our other locations now that you've enjoyed our standard of service in Chicago. Until then, be well!

My Wife and I looked for a reputable guide / tour company that we could hire for a tour of Chicago. Being first timers to the great City of Chicago we wanted a private tour so that we could absorb as much information as we possibly could. We read multiple reviews about “BeSpoke Private Tours” and we definitely made the right choice. Our guide for the entire day was Marlin and our driver was Jesse. Clearly true professionals and both complete Gentlemen. Marlin was a walking encyclopedia, whether it was regarding museums, historical Cemeteries, architecture or neighborhoods. We loved every minute of it and we couldn’t recommend BeSpoke Tours and specifically “Marlin” in Chicago any higher.

Thank you, Mark and Janet, for taking the time to write our very first Chicago review from your December visit! We're so glad Marlin and Jesse were able to conduct such an excellent, customized overview for the two of you during your inaugural visit to the area, particularly given your specific interests in the Cubs and the lesser explored neighborhoods. It was lovely working with you during the planning of your trip, and I hope we have a chance to work with the both of you again. Please don't hesitate to give us a call the next time you're heading to any of our destinations: New Orleans, Nashville, San Diego, San Francisco or California's wine country (or when you want to return to continue exploring Chicago!). All the very best in the meantime, Jennifer, Marlin, Terry and the growing team at Bespoke
