We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Its tailor-made to get out and explore a part of Chicago during the cold winter months. Every stop we made had meaningful relevance in Chicago's past and present. We loved discovering "gems" of the Cultural Center and it's history and found the Garfield Conservatory an Oasis in the middle of a neighborhood. Our tour guide Tom was a wealth of knowledge about all things Chicago. His ability to share antidotes and provide prospective along the way make L Stop Tours a must-do! We look forward to going more L Stop Tours in 2020!

It was our good fortune to attend an L Stop Tour lead by Tom, one of the two company principals. Not only did Tom deliver a bright and warm greeting upon meeting us, he brought doughnuts…and while I don’t usually eat them, these things were deadly delicious! Tom provided what can only be described as a high-end custom tour, filled with just the right amount of curiosity quenching fine strokes and details directly related to the subject at hand, yet not over loaded so as to become anything less than intriguing. Throughout the tour, Tom’s sincere attention to our comfort and needs was paramount, directing us to the nearest restroom, drinking fountain, or neighborhood haunt for some wonderful, flavorful ‘bites’. And whenever we posed a question, with the speed of a jackrabbit running from hounds, Tom not only provided an answer, his answer was interwoven with a rich history. Wow, who could ask for more! Having a career in the California Fire Service that has ranged from entry-level firefighter through battalion chief, I understand technical expertise, and quality service. What can I say…Tom and L Stop Tours have been great. From tour planning via the L Stop website, and ultimately the actual tour, their desire to make the process seamless was a key element to one heck of a successful experience, not to mention the wonderful gift of knowledge we left with. Regardless whether you consider yourself an astute traveler or weekend warrior, you are in champion hands with L Stop Tours; you won’t be disappointed.

We did this tour this week to explore an area of the city that we did not know with somebody who did - and had a wonderful time. Tom has a whole lot of knowledge and mixes walking the neighborhood (narrating fun facts along the way) with mini-tours, public transportation and even food along the way... all taken care of ahead of time so we could just enjoy. We will be certain to not only recommend LStop Tours to others but to take in a few of their other neighborhood tours as well ~ a great day!

We're so glad you enjoyed your tour with Tom! The Prairie District is filled with history and includes some of our favorite Chicago snacks along the way. We're excited to see you on future tours and show you more awesome neighborhoods around our city!

We did the Prairie District green line tour on a Saturday. It's a fantastic way to see parts of the city that perhaps many people overlook. (At least we had!) It was just Tom and the two of us, and we loved every minute! We've lived in the greater area our whole lives, and I always thought I had a pretty good working knowledge of the city. If you make the effort to look around other areas and allow someone to tell you about these places, you just might be amazed at what you didn't know. I certainly was. If you're like me, always exploring and trying to learn new things, then this is something you should experience!

Excellent tour! Took a water taxi to china town, enjoyed some food and walked the neighborhood. Then the red line to Streeterville. Tom was a great tour guide. He gave a lot of information. Can’t wait to do another tour!
