our tour guides offered too many opinions and thoughts about things other than what was relevant to the tour. When you don’t want to be political, don’t say anything political. All three guides said things that were inappropriate and personally offensive. We took the Riverwalk,...More

I agree, give what you think is appropriate. I was in a small group and it looked as if everyone gave something. I really enjoyed the guide and gave $20.

Yes. We did the morning inside the loop tour with Andy and the afternoon Lincoln Park tour. Be careful; some tours overlap. Expect 90 minutes to 2 hours for each tour.
