This was our second tour with Chicago's Finest, and our first Riverwalk/Architectural. Dan was once again extremely knowledgable, helpful, and we had just an overall great day in Chicago!! We're already planning our next tour - Holiday Lights. Book w/Dan, you will be more than happy w/your experience.

My husband, son and I took the North Side Essentials Tour. Dan, our guide, was very witty and informative. Dan knows lots of insider info of the history, buildings and people of Chicago. He had trivia questions and gift cards for the first person who correctly answered. The three hours went by very quickly so that is a good sign... More

Just went on the North Side Essentials tour last weekend, the latest of several tours I've taken with this tour company. So much fun, and a great way to get introduced to some of the neighborhoods on the north side. As always, Dan was a great guide, very knowledgeable with an enthusiasm for the city that always shines through in... More

We took this walking tour on a recent beautiful Saturday afternoon. It was my wife and me, plus my 17 year old son and 22 year old daughter. We had a great time and learned a lot of fun facts - even my daughter, who already knows everything, learned a thing or two! The tour meets at the Wrigley Building... More

We really enjoyed this tour. It is fast paced and we learned a lot about Chicago's history in such a short time. It was a good time. We did get a bathroom break half way through the tour which was nice. Wear comfortable shoes and be ready to answer trivia questions for a shot at a Starbucks card. That made... More

We spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how to celebrate fathers day with our group of 10, including 2 teen girls, 2 college boys, and 2 seniors (who are mobile).
