This was a great experience, and not what was expected. Colin, our tour guide, was excellent. He kept our interest with all the fun games and funny anecdotes during the walk.

Art institute of Chicago with Colin was a blast - fast paced, fun, informative and engaging! 2 hours fly by as you learn details behind selected works interspersed with games and gags. Would highly recommend.

I went on the Drag Queen Unhighlights tour as part of a bachelorette party. I completely loved it! It was a great way to explore the museum and see some of the lesser known sights. I would recommend it for anyone.
