Brought my Belgian family on this tour during Christmas week. Enjoyed the drive. Had some Garretts popcorn. Saw the Wrigleyville Christmas market-smaller than Daley plaza....and less crowded. Went to Zoo light....that was a MISTAKE. IT WAS SO CROWDED. I will never go during the holiday week again. I have been there before the holidays....that is the time to go. Could not enjoy zoo light because of the crowd. Great opportunity to let someone else do the driving.

We did the holiday lights tour last Christmas and the weather was horrible but the driver and the other 4 passengers had a marvelous time. He was GREAT. This year we traveled to Chicago to do it again. Terrible decision. We did not get the tour we paid for(Christmas Market and lights tour). We got on the bus and the driver took off without a word. We drove for a while with no idea what was going on or a destination. We finally ended up at Wrigley Field. The bus left and left some older patrons with no place to go to get warm. Again very little comment from the driver except she would return in a half hour and if we were not there she would leave without us. Same situation at Lincoln Park Zoo and the weather was extremely cold . Her assistant was no help because as soon as the bus left the pick up site he put his sunglasses on and went to sleep for the entire time. Terrible experience on bus 608 on Dec 17 and at a cost of $70.00.

I bought the land&sky tour. It included a two day hop on hop off tour and a Skydeck ticket. I loved the trolleys and guides. Everything was very Chrismassy. The busses/trolleys were never too crowded. Skydeck was also a great experience. I had printed out the confirmation e-mail and I showed it to the Chicago Trolley employee on the bus. She gave me the hop on and hop off bus ticket and told me that I should go to the Skydeck ticket window and show the confirmation e-mail to them. For some reason they didn't seem to know anything about this combo ticket there. And the Skydeck employee asked me to go to John Hancock center..eventually he accepted my "ticket". I loved visiting the Ledge. There was an employee available there to take photos.

Shaymus was a fantastic guide.. he’s knowledgeable about the city and you can tell he loves what he’s doing. Sadly, the ride I was on marks the final holiday ride and this company will be going down in history. Anyway I hope this review will help Mr Shaymus get a good job. Thanks again for the extra bag of popcorn Mr Shaymus. From the Singapore lady. 😊

Gretchen was great! She was a fountain of knowledge. We came from Canada for an extra long weekend and were treated with Gretchen’s love and knowledge of the City. She is an asset to her employers! Frank and Sherry Toronto, Canada
