    very interesting

    very nice guide, good bikes, the round was quite nice. Of course, great attention is paid to security - all American! The tour leads out of the city (where you have already seen everything with Hop on Hop off) and is therefore very interesting if you want to see more.

    Best way to see Chicago!

    Our guide Daniella was fabulous! Her high energy and positive personality made the tour a major highlight of our girls weekend. She memorized all of our names.. Amazing. At first we were hesitant to ride through the streets of Chicago, but Daniella kept us all together with no problem at all. It was safe and smooth.
