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.

We really enjoyed our tour. The only issue was the mix up with the departing location but that was resolved by the time we boarded the bus. This was my 2nd tour with you guys and I will definitely be going on another one. Our tour guide Clarence Goodman was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and brought an element of comedy to it as well. An overall great experience.
