  • Outstanding guide and the weather was perfect. 3 days is a good amount of time to explore Chicago. This tour is very economical then of course the hotel is not right in the city. But the tour guide picked us up for the day tour in the morning so that was convenient. However, we arranged our own transportation on the last day. I Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
