The host on our tour is also a history teacher. She was phenomenal! I expected to be entertained but I was not expecting to learn as much as I did about how the city of Chicago became what it is today!

Everything was wonderful. I loved seeing and hearing about the newer buildings in Chicago. Our tour guide was great (red hair from Wisconsin) sorry, didn't remember her name. The bartender was super nice and drinks were excellent! Overall pleasant experience.

The Tour Guide was extraordinary!!!! Professional, knowledgeable, expressive, entertaining, and you could tell she loved sharing her plethora of information with us. I live in the city and always take my out of town guests on a tour but this one was by far my favorite. Wish I knew her name. I would always request her tours!!
