“Awesome time”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

My girlfriend and I did the bites & brews tour. It was tons of fun and a great way to see the city (it's our first time here). Our guide, Gabe, was great- very cool, gave great explanations of everything along the way. I honestly wouldn't have changed anything. We're probably going to book the gangster tour tomorrow b/c we loved it.

“Great time!”

The city lights tour was an amazing way to see the city. Matty was an informative guide, and made sure everyone stayed together and had a great time. Highly recommend it!

“Awesome Day Out!!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a fantastic time on the Bike, Bites & Brews tour with our guide, Tim. He was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the areas and history of the city, and we had a great laugh whilst sampling some of the best foods in Chicago. We will definitely do another tour the next time we are back. Thanks!

“Awesome 3-hr Tour / Adventure w/ Eddy”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We toured Friday at 9am; we were outfitted with helmets and very comfortable and easy to ride bikes. The 3-hr tour took us to Old Town - the Gold Coast - Lincoln Park - Lincoln Park Zoo area - along the Lakefront Trail. We stopped along the way and were provided interesting fun facts - history, architecture - etc. I would highly recommend this tour and this location for simply bike rentals. They are conveniently located at the end of Ohio - which has a pedestrian walkway under Lakeshore Dr - offering safe passage straight to the Lakefront Trail. I would recommend nobody under the age of 14 ride on a tandem - if they are younger, be sure to keep them very close to the front of the tour behind the guide. The particular tour we were on had us on city streets and there is a lot of traffic - I felt comfortable but would have been very worried as a mom if we had younger kids w/ us. The drivers we encountered were all very courteous - even the cabbies that you know we were slowing down. Great tour - highly recommend it!

“Ask for Matty”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

As everyone else here has already said repeatedly, this is a great way do some sightseeing. I took the Neighborhoods Tour with Matty, who's a terrific guide--witty and informative and considerate. He kept an eye on everyone in the group, looking out for the less experienced riders while keeping up the pace in order to cover plenty of ground. The three hours passed very quickly and happily.

I returned the next day for a day-long rental, and it was money well spent. The bike was more comfortable than my own, and the bike/pedestrian path along Lake Michigan is some of the best biking I've ever done. Enjoy!
