Bought the ticket for Chicago, was excited to tour the city at 7:30pm. Bus never arrived. Waited with other people, until it was too cold. Please issue a refund.

Not what we expected

Our second driver was good. But people on the tour were talking a lot instead of listening to audio. First driver interrupted the audio constantly with his own information. The audio was NOT as good as we have experienced in other locals. Too much games and silly questions not enough information on what we were seeing

We have taken many many hop on hop off tours and this was by far the worst. Granted it started raining and we were down on the lower deck. The windows had mess screen so there was absolutely no view. Black windows. The audio had silly nonsensical banter. The bus driver kept hitting brakes the whole time jerking the bus where the guy in front of us almost flew out of his seat. Not worth the $100.00 we spent!

Relaxing trip around the City is a must for Chicago! To know that the bus is always available! The fact that you get hysterical information about your surroundings during your trip!

This was a fantastic way to see Chicago and learn about the sites! To see the beautiful architecture and the artwork on the buildings from the top of the bus is the only way to see this city!
