While they book came to life through visiting the remaining areas that still exist, and knowing of future restoration or, destruction and exploration of the Holmes castle, the amount of tangential info was a bit too much. What would have helped greatly would have been the visuals within the bus (explained to not be available on that particular vehicle). Happily the pics I took do help me visually recall the events so wonderfully described in Larkins book. Thank you for your excellent recap David.
I chose that rating because I felt the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and able to explain everything very clearly had a great time
Read the book n was interested in tour n where all took place. Guide was very informative and helpful in putting together areas mentioned in book.
Had a very enjoyable tour. I look forward to more tours.
our tour was absolutely fabulous.. the tour guide was so informative.. thanks for a great time, it also helped having the foggy weather...
You were VERY knowledgeable about the Devil in the White City and brought even more to the tour then the book did (although the book was great)! It was wonderful to be able to actually SEE where the World's Fair was. I'd love to come again when it's warm out and see the greenery that is now in hiding. As you mentioned though, we were able to see buildings we wouldn't have been able to see as much of if the leaves were on the trees. I look forward to doing another tour with you! Checking out the hotel afterwards was also a great experience. Thank you for doing such a great job!
It was so much fun we're definitely coming back for another tour!!!!
The tour exceeded all expectations! The guide was very knowledgeable and very articulate. The bus was very clean and comfortable, and the speaker system terrific. You could hear clearly every word. Definitely worth every penny!! I highly recommend this tour to everyone!!
There were some logistics problems, but they handled them professionally and rectified the situation quickly. I did feel that the tour was a bit long. Booking through Chicago Hauntings, I thought it would be more about some haunted places in Chicago related to the serial killings. This was more history. I enjoyed it but towards the end I felt it dragging a bit. All and all an interesting tour, just not was I was expecting.
