Bill, our walking tour guide, was friendly and informative. Bill is very knowledgeable about the history of Chicago and he obviously loves this City. It was a hot day and he went out of his way to walk us in the shade, take us into interesting buildings and gave us directions to places that would interest us as well as restaurants in the area.

The weather was very cold and rainy. Not sure this was usual for this time of year,
First day on a 3 day pass was good, Second day it very cold. Double decker was full capacity. Instead of bringing a second bus or trolley we were forced to sit outside on the top level. I felt sorry for a family with 4 small children not dressed for the weather.(It was the last run of the day.) Lower level had some stand up bars,but driver said "no standing". I found it interesting the next morning another driver let people stand on the lower level. The bus guides were good.

Wanting to learn more about the architecture and architects who built Chicago, we signed up for the Historic Building of the Loop and Beyond Tour with Chicago Red Cap Tours. It was a great morning walking with Bill, our tour guide. He was informative, fun and knowlegeable as he showed us both older buildings and newer Chicago skyscrappers. He was clever drawing us through fascinating lobbies to get us from one street to another. He cheerfully answered our questions and shared delightful tidbits of Chicago history along the way. We recognized many streets from movies like Batman Begins and the Untouchables.
Communication with Bill was easy through email and his cell phone. Use Chicago Red Cap Tours, you won't regret it. The next time we're there we plan to go on the other tour! Reservatons are required. There is no extra charge for the exercise!
