Bobbie and Susan were great company and very well informed of small fun details of history and architecture. A Chicago Greeter tour was worth doing and doing again!

What a great alternative to paying $100+ per person for an individual tour! Thank you David Miller, for showing us the beauty of the downtown's buildings, we would not go inside by yourself.

Wonderful tour. Educational, fun, informative. Randy is a fantastic guide. We don't like walking around with big groups and this was a perfect way to learn about and enjoy Chicago.
