    "Great way to see the city"

    We enjoyed this bus ride around Chicago. Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. You will learn interesting facts about crimes in Chicago - both mob crimes and others. The best part is the opportunity to get off the bus and take pictures at various places along the route. Sit on the left side of the bus (opposite side of the driver) for the best views. We enjoyed the comfortable bus and the opportunity to see areas of Chicago we would never have ventured into on foot. Great tour of the city.
