I was having a little bit of hard time finding the meeting spot but the customer service were very helpful and quick helped me to find it. Got to see the whole downtown. Over all it is a good experience and it’s worth the the try must try it!

A great way to figure out where you want to spend additional time. Canopy on the roof keeps you warm, even when chilly.

Such a fun way to see Chicago and get an over all feel of the city along with meaningful history!

Was a terrific way to get out and see a little bit of the city and learn about some gangsters.

A perfect way to see things you may not even think of! It’s was a great ride.
