We took the 4 hour tour. Paul was well informed and an enjoyable guide. Pat was the driver and did an incredible job maneuvering amongst Tri-Athlon and Cubs traffic.
Only problem was the unexpected 41 parking charge. It would be helpful to provide parking tips for future customers.

Excellent tour as we covered many spots that must be seen in Chicago. Well worth the cost.
