What a fabulous experience. We had Carly and Gabe as our tour guides. They led us through all kinds of historic areas in Chicago while telling us the back stories. Really made Chicago come to life for us, such an interesting city. The food we had was delicious, and they made variations for us being vegetarians. What we learned while on the tour was fascinating. Highly recommend this tour for all ages. Carly really made it fun and was very animated in her storytelling.

We enjoyed the history and inside info the guide gave us. It was very chilly and 2 of the stops did not have indoor seating available. We had a slice of pizza, a hot dog, a half beef sandwich, and a donut each. I’m not sure $315 was worth it.
