I was so disappointed that when i arrived the venue, it had a sign showing that ‘The tour was cancelled due to private event’ No information from viator before. However, when I searched the official website, such information was shown on their web already. Finally, had spend some time dealing with Viator to get my refund.

Beautiful Building

I gave the tour 4 stars because the building is an icon that you must see. Our tour guide was fun and up tempo. The only downside was the security measures. It kind of set of the tone wrong. It was either a bit much, or if required a worry as too what could happen on the tour...

I've lived in Chicago all my life but never took this tour before. Our guide was excellent, knowledgable, funny and tried to get to know each of us on the tour. He knows the theater well. He's a little hazy on Chicago history dates: when the Lake Street el and State Street subway were built. But overall a good job.
