Our guide Matt was very exciting to be with he was full of passion and very descriptive. Brandon the driver also was very good and the vehicle was super comfortable. They went out of there way to show us the Windy City and also spend 30 mins extra !!! Fabulous guides and great company well done.

Our tour guide, Ben, was outstanding. This private tour was the best way to see the highlights of the city. Top notch driver and guide that made us feel very comfortable. They went the extra mile to make it memorable.

I will definitively recommend this tour company of Chicago to whoever I know is visiting Chicago. From the start they made reserving the tour a breeze (which I did two days before my tour). Everyone who we dealt with from the person taking the reservation, the tour guide, and even the driver was polite and did everything to make our... More

Matt and Brandon made provided is with a fantastic and memorable 4 hr City Tour! We were pretty tired when they picked us up but Matt's enthusiasm quickly woke us up. At several stops, other tour guides and patrons were complimenting him on his knowledge of various subjects and the City. Some even seemed jealous they were being outshined. Brandon,... More

I found Chicago Private Tours on Trip Advisor. While reviewing my in-laws train schedule I discovered they had a 5 hour layover in Chicago. With only one day's notice, I scrambled to find a tour company to show them the sites. Mike was extremely accommodating and sensitive to the fact that these were elderly travelers who might need some extra... More

My family and I enjoyed the 4-hour Classic City tour with Matt (tour guide) and Brandon (driver). We are a family of four with two children (9yo and 11yo). Like most children these days, ours are more interested in video games than pretty much anything else. So, I was worried that this tour would be too long for them. Surprisingly,... More

My family had a wonderful experience with Chicago Private Tours and our guides Matt and TJ (and for the same price as the bigger hop-off buses). Matt was very knowledgeable, animated and entertaining. We were able to choose where we wanted to stop and take photos, and instead of just dropping us off for a few minutes Matt came off... More

Staying in Hyde Park

Neighborhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
