Our greeter Norman was brilliant. So much knowledge and seamed to grasp what we would like to see straight away. So much history and lots of stories. This is a brilliant experience for anyone visiting Chicago.

I have already submitted a review one month ago. I said it was very nice to be escorted and I visited the Jewish sites. I went on my own to Scopie to visit the Holocaust Museum which very much impressed me.
