Brooke was a wonderful tour guide. She was very knowledgeble and made the content she was sharing exciting. My husband and I just got married on 7/16/21 and was celebrating our honeymoon and wanted to do something memerable. The food, the scenery, and places we visited were excellent. My husband and I got to eat our first Chicago dog together. I visited Chicago before but would have never tried this combination on a hotdog, at first my husband was going to pass on tasting the hotdog, but was happy that I changed his mind. The best part for us was the cupcakes at Molly's cupcakes and we will be taking some home with us on our way back to Michigan. Thanks so much to Brooke and the bike tour for making are honeymoon a great experience. I have and will recommend to others!!

Great price for a full experience. Biking around the city allows for you to see so much in 4 hours. We learned a ton of history, ate yummy food, and drank delicious beers. Our tour guide, Brooke, was knowledge and fun! I will add I hadn’t ridden a bike in a decade, so I was very nervous. The team made me feel confident and comfortable!

Took this tour on 6/12/2021. Brooke was our guide and she was AMAZING. Very knowledgeable and personable. The weather was amazing although we did get stuck at a bar at Wrigley for a couple hours during a downpour. I would DEFINITELY recommend this tour if you want to see the city from a different perspective and get some exercise to boot.
