Unique experience of seeing Chicago sites
Lianna_S, May 2024
Got to see the sites of Chicago and experience it on a bike, which I’ve never done before. We also had beautiful weather (completely sunny and warm). York was the best tour guide and made sure we got our photo ops!
Great Tour

It was a great bike tour. York was an excellent tour guide in companion with another new tour guide member (I forgot his name).
Lots of fun.

This is a great way to see Chicago. The tour is mostly on greenway paths or protected bike lanes which is great.
Fun Bike Ride with ‘T’
Deanna_D, Sep 2023
This was a great bike ride! It is 10 miles. Our group was between 40 - 70+ years old. We are not regular bike riders, we did fine, there are stops along the way to rest. ‘T’, I wish I remembered how to spell his first name, was our leader. He was amazing! Lots of history and stories. Highly recommend.
Best way to tour the city
Leantoinette_D, Sep 2023
This was the perfect way to see the city. The tour covered the Riverwalk area, loop area, the parks, beaches, planetarium/museum area, and navy pier. Nice pace and very safe. Our guide Jeff (most beautiful eyes) was great. He was friendly and knowledgeable on the history of the city and genuinely appears to love his job. I would recommend this tour as the perfect way to get some exercise and see more in a short amount of time.
Great tour !

Cassie_K, Jul 2023
I was worried that I would be too hot because it was 86 degrees the day I went, but it was really pleasant! The bike creates nice breeze the faster you go. Another plus is this is low carbon, low impact tourist activity.
Visiting Chicago for the First Time
Dorothy_S, Jun 2023
Great ride through Chicago. Got to see a lot of landmarks and learn the history of Chicago. Would absolutely recommend for anybody visiting Chicago, especially for the first time. It is not scary riding the bike through the city as many roads have bike paths. You end with a beautiful ride along the Michigan Lakefront Trail.

What a great way to see the city and experience Chicago. They take you to places that you may not visit on your own. York was very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of the city and had a ton interesting facts that I had never heard before. If you have the time, I would definitely recommend taking a bike tour!

John_N, Nov 2022
Even though it was freezing cold, we enjoyed seeing Chicago on bike. Our guide, AJ, made the tour very enjoyable and was well informed and entertaining.
Great way to see the sites
Gilbert_E, Oct 2022
We enjoyed our tour even on a very cold day. The guide was friendly and informative and maintained good safety practices. We would have wanted to do more on the north part of the lakeside bicycle trail but the southern side did allow us to see many major landmarks.
Very fun
TERRI_C, Oct 2022
The bikes were good; guide Vas was knowledgeable; personable & fun. Better than expected. Would have liked a snack
