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.
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.
Clarence was an excellent tour guide; he was knowledgeable, entertaining, and energetic (despite numerous bus problems). Why I dropped this rating to a 4 was what seemed like an unnecessary visit to the pub, which had really nothing to do with the tour. If we can BYOB on the bus, why stop at a pub? I would much rather visit another site or stop at Union Stockyards to talk abut that history as it was discussed heavily in the book. Or even get out at the Wooded Isle/Japanese Gardens when they are finished. I felt like the pub was a way to kill time that could have been filled in other, much better ways.
