This company is all about customer service! Berlina took my call on a weekend and went all out to arrange our tour. She even called me on her day off to confirm everything! I booked this tour for 5 woman in Chicago for the weekend. Matthew and TJ were excellent so professional and knowledgeable about the city. They both made this tour fun. We all felt this was the highlight of the weekend. This is the best way really see Chicago! Thank you again! Dianne

If your travel plans include the wonderful city of Chicago, you would do yourself a favor and book a tour with Chicago Private Tours. On a recent, first trip, to Chicago with friends in August, we decided at the last minute (the day before) that we should have planned a some type of city tour to give us a head start on what we wanted to see and do in this fabulous town. The staff of Chicago Private Tours went out of there way to accommodate us with little notice. The immaculate Van and wonderful driver and guide picked us up promptly at our hotel. They asked what we wanted to see and we told them we wanted the view that they would give a visiting relative.

It was wonderful, we saw the sights, even getting out to walk in a few spots (totally our choice).
We visited neighborhoods and really came away with a 'lay of the land" view that enabled us to venture out on our and decide what sites and museums we wanted to see in depth later in the week. We feel that our Chicago visit would not have been as memorable had we done the tour.

These folks were friendly, knowledgeable and full of interesting facts about the Windy City...such as why it is called the "WIndy CIty". You will have to take the tour yourself to find out. You will be very glad you did!

After reading the glowing reviews for Chicago Private Tours I decided this was just the thing to book for our first trip to Chicago. We were not disappointed as it turned out to be an experience we won't soon forget. What made this tour special was the high level of personalized service provided by our two tour guides, George and Matthew. They were an absolute joy to be around, friendly and courteous as well as extremely knowledgeable in a wide variety of facets of this amazing city. They were both very accomodating of our requests for stops and information, and made sure to customize our trip so we could see many areas of Chicago we had not been to already. Both guides did their very best to make sure we saw as much as possible in the time we had without feeling like we were rushed or pressured to move on. This tour was the most memorable of our trip and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to discover Chicago in an in depth and personal way. Thank you so much George and Matt!!

My family and I recently travelled to Chicago and booked a tour with Chicago Private Tours based in part on positive reviews off of Tripadvisor. The level of personalized service offered by this tour service is exemplary. Both of our tour guides, Ben and Matthew, were courteous, well informed and attentive to our requests for information. All of us highly recommend this tour service.

We reserved a city tour for 12 family members with this company and we cannot be more satisfied. Both the tour guide Arlene and the driver TJ did a great job showing us the city. They were very accommodating to our requests. I have taken many tours and sometimes guides and drivers don't seem too happy, but that was not the case on this one. We asked them that we needed to reserve sometime for a quick lunch and they took care of everything.

I love the city and have been here several times on business trips, but this time I can tell that I learned a lot about the history of Chicago. I strongly recommend this company for a private tour of the city,especially for the price!
