Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A group of six of us opted to take this tour as a work team bonding event in Chicago and we're so happy we did. Dash was a stand-out guide, providing historical information about the city as well as tying it to the present day architecture and lifestyle. We learned so much about Chicago and had an amazing time peeking into pieces that we otherwise wouldn't have seen. It was a highlight of our trip!

Our tour guide Dave was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city and was able to fill our tour with fun facts about the buildings and neighborhoods we explored. This walking tour was a great way for me to explore the city and appreciate its history while getting some steps in to cancel out our enjoying some local treats :) Guide was very nice and I liked the group size. Sometimes tours with 25+ people don’t give you a chance to ask questions, but that was not the case here. Thanks for a great afternoon!

Of the many tours we took while in Chicago this one was by far our favorite. The stops and sights were very interesting and informative. Our tour guide, Kelly, was engaging, had great advice/stories to share and was overall very knowledgeable of the city and its history. This tour is a great deal for the price and we would highly recommend.

Chicago Dave is a great tour guide! He provided the history of Chicago but made the tour fun. We explored a lot of historic places and actually went inside of places like Marshall Field and Company (Macy’s), Chicago Cultural Center where we kinda crashed a wedding. Luckily it hadn’t started because we were able to look around such a beautiful place. Then, we went in what was once the Chicago Athletic Club. Lastly, we ended on the River Walk. I definitely recommend this tour!

Tall Dave was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much! The history of the city was brought to life with lots of interesting stories told by Dave. The beauty of the city, its buildings, its history, and our great guide made this tour a must do when you visit! Icing on the cake were some special Chicago treats like Garrets popcorn. Yum!

We took our foreign exchange students (Thailand and Ukraine) on this tour to give them a better understanding of Chicago cultural history. Dash was our awesome tour guide and we had a great time walking around downtown with him. He showed us a great mix of architectural styles and even though I grew up around the area I learned a lot about the city (as did the kids)! Thank you to Dash for a great tour!

My colleague and I decided to spend a weekend in Chicago in between 2 weeks of meetings, booked this tour and John was our guide. What a fantastic experience! We loved the passion that he has for this city as as 3rd generation Chicago-an and we LOVED the treats and are now lifelong fans of Chicago popcorn. Thank you John for a wonderful afternoon.

Regardless of growing up in the Chicago area, I was still learning new things about the city on this tour! Tony was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about what he was talking about. The city is beautiful and the food was delicious. The tour went by quickly, and was the highlight of my weekend. Definitely recommend!

Dash was an excellent tour guide for our walking tour today. I hadn’t been to Chicago in over 20 years and never appreciated the rich history and architecture this city had! Wow, I learned a lot and Dash gave us great recommendations for dining and further sight seeing. Now that the tourist season has slowed down, it was just the three of us. We even got some great history in the Macy’s ( former Marshall Fields). Thanks so much!

Took friends that were reluctant to venture into the city on a tour. David was our guide and little did we know how lucky we were to have him! Five minutes into the tour, they asked if we could extend the tour or take an additional one! It was a terrific experience and David made everyone feel welcome, comfortable and engaged. Thank you for a special day in Chicago!
