Unforgetable! - Our tour of Chicago was a ‘master class’ on the origins, history and development of an iconic American city thanks to Todd’s narration and T.J.’s adroit negotiation of the bustling traffic. A Chicagoan for 35 years, I learned things I never knew and saw parts of the city that I’d only heard about. Everything was so enjoyable and went so smoothly that I would consider an encore the next time our family and friends are in Chicago.

Awesome experience - Mike and his team were absolutely wonderful to work with. They created a custom tour for all our east coast family and friends that were in Chicago for our son’s wedding. Todd our tour guide was funny, entertaining and extremely knowledgeable of all things Chicago. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Fantastic Day - We had a family event in town and wanted to see the city since it was our first visit to Chicago. We were anxious about the tour being cancelled since we had a blizzard warning the day before but there were no issues at all. Our guide Todd and driver TJ were on time and the van was perfect. We covered an incredible amount of the city and learned more about Chicago than we could have imagined. Todd shared his knowledge of the city and kept it very fun and interesting. We had a fantastic day! So glad we took the tour - it was definitely worth the time and money and I highly recommend Chicago Private Tours.

Amazing! - This truly was a one of a kind experience through Chicago. Both the driver and tour guide went up and above regarding customer service and the tour guide knew so much about the history of Chicago. He was impressive. We definitely recommend this tour for anyone who really wants to immerse themselves not only in the history, culture, and food but also stories we would not have the pleasure of hearing regarding Chicago. Thank you so much for making our Chicago trip one we will always remember.

Relaxed and Informative - Relaxed and enjoyable tour around Chicago. Learned a lot about the history from our friendly and humourous guide Todd. Tour lasted about 4 hours and was flexible to include things of particular interest to us. A great way for us to get our bearings on our first day in Chicago.

Worth every penny and more! - Contacted them with exactly what I wanted. Single mom traveling with her daughter. I was VERY skeptical about everything we did while traveling alone. I portrayed this in the emails and phone calls. But I knew exactly what I wanted and needed. Mike took over and really went above and beyond to make this the best day trip ever! We had 1 full day in Chicago and we got to see and do so much! I gave him a list of everything I wanted to see and do and he added suggestions as well. We had a packed agenda but NEVER felt rushed. Riding around with our driver and Mike was like traveling with a best friend. My 9 year old daughter loved him and he answered all her questions and even played on the playground with her (oops he probably doesn’t want that getting out that he’s a softy). I felt safe and confident throughout the entire day. I would 100% recommend using this company ! Was worth every penny and more!

Loved our private tour with Todd!!! - Todd was great. We got on well and he was very patient with my son who is on the spectrum. We learned a lot, enjoyed the stops and saw things that even my kids were impressed by. I would recommend this service to anyone wanting a tour of Chicago.
