The first bus driver was great. Animated guided the tour. The second however was driving erratic. I would say using gas and brake at the same time as our heads were jerking around the seats. No guide, no announcement of why stops.

Would highly recommend this way of seeing Chicago. Enjoyed the freedom to hop off and stay as long as needed to see attraction and then hop on to go to the next attraction.

Great day and weather. You get to see so much of Chicago! A nice way to get you bearings before you explore on foot!

Lara was fantastic. We had a bunch of fun and tons of food to try with great information.

The best way to see Chicago and to get around town!
