This was a great tour, informative and engaging. Not just about films but also covered some Chicago history to put content into perspective. We took our 8 year old and he also enjoyed it.

I’ll begin by saying that I grew up in Chicago many years ago, and I saw and learned countless new things! This is not your usual bus tour with a boring canned presentation. I don’t really consider myself a film buff, but the stories were...More
