If I could negative stars, I would. Don't book with this place. I booked the South Side tour via Viator. The tour was at 3:30 and I arrived at the drop-off location at 3:20pm. I waited for 5 min. No one was there. I called the number on my invoice andit says they are closed.

I didn't really go on the bus tour with great expectations, as the ones I've been on before have been pretty mediocre. But that all changed after I met our tour guide Mitch. He was one of the best tour guides I have ever experienced. Not only was he full of facts about Chicago,
