Our tour guide Kelly was very knowledgeable on Chicago . It was raining and a bit cool on the day but we fared well dodging in and out of buildings and getting the guided tour. Chicago has changed a great deal in the last 50 years since I was there . I was impressed with all the old buildings and how well they had endured and had been kept so well.

It was a very expansive tour. Wallach was a great guide, informative and friendly . We learned and experienced so much - the history of Chicago, riding the subway, tasting the Chicago hotdog, pizza and Italian beef sandwich (all delicious), seeing amazing architecture and all of the highlights. A lot of walking but it’s the best way to experience all that Chicago has to offer.

We did the combo tour, History and the food tour. It was an excellent experience. Not only we learn so much of the history of this beautiful city but the tour guide also added in some ghost story! Wallach was our tour guide and he was awesome! Very knowledgeable and professional. We arrived a little late due to our Uber and he was so patient and welcoming and I really appreciate that gesture. I will totally advise any of my friends and family to take this tour on there first day here in Chicago! Wear comfortable shoes, you will be walking a lot 👍🏻
