Everywhere we vacation we take bike tours. And this tourney far was one of the best if not the best we have been on. The night bike tour was pretty awesome. It is one thing to see the city during the day but the night views were great. Elliott was a great guide. The city skyline, the fireworks from navy... More

We've done two of their tours now - the Southside Gangster tour and - most recently - the Lakefront Neighborhood tour. Both were really well organized, informative, and just a whole lot of fun! The first time I was a little nervous about riding a bike in downtown Chicago, but the way the tour is organized - they keep the... More

Absolutely worth the money. Our guide (Brian) was amazing. Fun sense of humor, lots of interesting facts to learn, beautiful scenery and stops to see, very easy ride (basically no hills), and the tour lasted exactly the 3 hrs they said it would - perfectly timed. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to see Chicago.! If I'd had... More

I had a great experience on the Lakefront Neighborhoods Bike Tour! Our guide Mike was very informative on the history of the city and made sure that we were safe the entire time. The bikes were great; the seats were super comfy and there was a pouch to put your belongings in (if you have belongings that are larger, they... More

The tour was SO great! Evan was really funny, took as to some great spots, and offered the perfect amount of commentary/history. They did a great job orienting us at the beginning and discussing safety and best practices while riding, pariticularly since I am not used to biking in the street. Never felt unsafe. We made 5 stops - deep... More

I've lived in Chicago for over 20 years but only recently discovered this outing. So glad I did. My wife and I had such a great time going up and down the lake and our guide made it more fun all along the way. Great way to spend a Saturday night - especially in the summer when you can catch...

Our tourguide Mike led us through several parts of old and new Chicago, telling us about its history in a concise but very informative manner. He is a true expert in history and has a great sense of humour. Three hours was way too short; there was so much more that Mike could have told us about. Very very interesting... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
