Refused to give refund despite there being storms and tornado warnings at the time. I tried several times.
Best tour in Chicago!
Mike_C, Sep 2023
Chicago is a relatively flat city making it ideal for a bike tour. This particular tour was really cool. In addition to getting to see and learn about the city we got to stop at get deep dish pizza, an authentic Chicago hot dog, a delicious brownie and free beer… all included in the tour price. Such a great value and fun afternoon. I loved biking along the bike bath on Lake Shore Drive and enjoying the lake and the city views. If you are looking for a fun city tour in Chicago don’t hesitate, put this on your list!
Great experience, would highly recommend
Kedar_J, Sep 2023
Joe was an excellent guide and quite a raconteur about Chicago's history. Took us to some awesome spots. We enjoyed the biking experience a lot.
Lived up to the reviews
Gillian_D, Sep 2023
Great tour, informative, varied and a great mix of local history and content . The food was great quality and our tour guide Jeff was so full of knowledge and passion for his city. What I particularly loved was how he mixed us up and encouraged us to have fun and meet some great people on the tour. This would be a good complement to a city architecture or sights tour as it goes a little way out of the downtown area. Highly recommend
Excellent! Great Bike Tour!
Roberta_M, Sep 2023
