I went on this tour for the first time. I am a student and took to this tour and it was superb! They took to all the Chicago important places in the city, especially the Lake and gave enough time to get mesmerized. The guide also was very helpful and the dinner at Chinatown was delicious. The hotel accommodations met the mark. I enjoy the shopping and bought branded shirts and jeans, this was my long standing dream now realized. I recommend this trip and will certainly go on this tour again.

The pick-up and drop locations were perfect and done rightly. The hotel accommodation rooms were good, but we had to wait for the room allocation, though the bookings were all done. The transportation to places we visited, everything was as per the schedule. In fact, in some places, we delayed a bit, but the tour operators welcomed us with the same pleasing smile. This tour must not be missed and will be loved by anyone.
