My guide Deborah made me absolutely fall in love with Chicago and appreciate its history. Very knowledgeable and friendly, she takes time to explain the story behind each of the buildings and its architecture. Her passion for Chicago is contagious. If you are in downtown Chicago for a day and want to see the city, this tour is your best bet. If you are lucky enough and other tourists don't turn up, you can have a private tour of downtown Chicago just like I did :)

The tour guide, Deborah, was just fantastic! She REALLY knows her stuff and has interesting stories and facts to go along with the sites. Every question we had was answered with the accuracy of a historian. She kept 'wow-ing' us because she was definitely not a boring tour guide!
The tour itsself is also fascinating. As a native Chicagoan I have already seen all the typical tour places, but this tour takes you through the unknown history of Chicago and tells the stories of historic buildings and landmarks(e.g. The Palmer House, Marshall Fields, Carson Pirie Scott, etc).
Some of the buildings we visited and heard about were just so beautifully ornate, and the classy oppulance just blew us away!!
Let's just say that this beautiful, interesting, enjoyable tour flew by, and after the 2 1/2 hours were over, I wished we could continue on for more!

I HIGHLY reccomend this tour!!!!

I had no clue of all the little unknown facts of Chicago are the cornerstones of what makes the city fabulous. The information shared on Ms. Williams's tour has given me a newfound respect and admiration for my home. Most of all I had fun too.

I am from Chicago, but I had family in town visiting. We decided to take this free tour and it was phenomenal! Even though I'm from Chicago, I learned so much about my city! I felt compelled to tip the guide more than I normally would because I greatly enjoyed the tour! I highly recommend this tour!
