Great experience - My wife and I did not know what to expect but our tour guide (Lizzie) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and kept moving at a good pace - not too fast or too slow. The food and beer were the exclamation point for the tour. Really fun and engaging way to see Chicago. Highly recommend.
