While walking the streets of downtown Chicago, we came upon the Cultural Center and the opportunity to sign up for the walking tour with Susan. Everyone who worked at the front desk as a greeter was so pleasant. Susan has showed us so many interesting gems and was very knowledgeable about the history. We have greatly enjoyed the tour and went back to the recommended locations the next day. Such a wonderful service you offer to share the history and culture of your wonderful city. We will definitely return and recommend your services in the future. Many thanks and appreciation to Chicago Greeter Staff.
Thank you!

My boyfriend and I were paired with Bobbie. She took us on a 3 hour tour through some amazing buildings that we would've never visited without her guidance. Our flight was almost cancelled due to bad weather, Bobbie had kept track of the storm and checked in the morning of to make sure we made it safely! She kept in mind our interests and tailored the trip just to our needs. Highly recommend this service to anyone visiting Chicago.

I've been on a lot of "free" tours, but having a fully volunteer service just shows how much these people love Chicago! Thank you again to Bobbie!!

Our greeter was Bobbie and we had a wonderful time. She was very knowledgeable about Chicago’s history and showed us parts of Chicago we would have never known about. This is an amazing service she provided and we could tell she really enjoyed sharing Chicago with us!

Our Chicago Greeter was amazing. Sue spent 21/2 hours showing us “The Loop”. It was a great way to spend our first morning in Chicago. This is a truly free service as the greeters do not even accept tips. Our lovely greeter wouldn’t even let us buy her a coffee!

I’m so very pleased to have found this service! I can’t believe how incredibly kind and knowledgeable my Chicago Greeter is! Mary Williams showed me the beauty, the history and the sites that Chicago has to offer!
