“A fantastic snapshot of Chicago”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

This tour was excellent. Both driver and guide, Matthew and Mike were a wealth of knowledge and extremely obliging. All specific requests were catered for and everything time we wanted to stop for a photo, they were more than happy to do so. The car was great for viewing skyscrapers with its large sunroof as well being extremely comfortable. This tour is a great way to view what you specifically request to see in Chicago. Thoroughly recommended.

“Wonderful custom tour!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Tour guide Ben and driver Matthew were terrific, and more than willing to go off the beaten path to help us locate sites that were significant in our family's history. Both are extremely knowledgeable native sons who seem to love their city and enjoy their jobs. The van was gorgeous, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The full cooler of water bottles was a nice touch! This tour was a highlight of our trip and we enthusiastically recommend this company to anyone interested in a one-of-a-kind experience.

“Great way to get oriented to Chicago especially if time is limited”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

I was visiting Chicago for the first (definitely not the last) time with my wife on business and only had a day and a half to get a feel for the city. Our guide Ben and driver P.J. gave us a personalized and enjoyable overview of the city and it's many attractions. I would certainly recommend this company. I was treated well from the people on the phone to our guide and driver.

“So much fun !!!!!”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We just came back from a great vacation in Chicago and I have to say that the tour was a highlight. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children and George , our guide , and Matthew , our driver , showed us the best of Chicago. George was the perfect tour guide , you can tell he loves his job and Chicago. He told us so much about history and fun facts about the city that we never got bored. Matthew had the brilliant idea to get pizza for lunch...the BEST PIZZA we ever had !!!! The kids loved everything about the tour . George and Matthew were GREAT !!!!!! We will recommend Chicago Private Tours.

“START your Chicago visit with this tour!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

The only thing wrong with our tour was that we did it on our LAST day in Chicago. The tour was perfect for us; covered history, interesting side-bars to facts, neighborhoods, architecture, art, music... you name, our guides knew something about everything.

Kudos to your staff!
