Great tour! Highly recommend!
, May 2022
This private tour is totally worth it! We had a driver and a guide take us around various parts of the city in a very spacious Landrover. Matt our guide was very knowledgeable and Harold our driver was great at maneuvering around the traffic which there was a lot of during the Memorial Day weekend. We definitely recommend this tour. It is a must do when in Chicago.
Learning about Chicago

The bean and Wrigley field. Buying cub jerseys personalized. The skyscraper view at navy pier. Chicago university.
Worth the money!

I have seen much of downtown Chicago before. We had a foreign exchange student and decided to do the private tour in hopes that we might see a few different things and also give her an idea of the city. It was one of the best tours I have ever been on! I can't remember the names of our guide and driver, but they were fun, friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to do what was needed...even let my husband ride up front after he was feeling a bit car sick. Anyway, I would highly recommend spending the extra money for the private tour. We saw so many things that we wouldn't have seen on a group tour and also learned a lot in the process!
Great tour and even greater guides TJ and Todd
, Nov. 2021
TJ was an amazing driver and so knowledgable. Todd was also amazing. We learned so much and had a great time doing so. Don't miss the hotdogs by Wriggley Field. Overall we loved the tour and felt like we could do the same one many times over as there was so much information to process.
Crisp Chicago tour with limited agenda
, Jul. 2021
Crisp & short tour. Most Chicago highlights were visited or we drove thru in front of these landmarks. The visit to Millennium park was the highlight of the tour. However the tour date was changed from the booked date due to overbooking. Limited areas in North & South sides visited giving impression that nothing much to see in Chicago!
Great tour

Matthew and Harold were perfect tour guides. We learned all we needed to know for our first time in Chicago.
The Best Tour EVER!
, Nov. 2019
Matt and our driver were fantastically accommodating. Matt called prior to arriving and met us promptly outside of our hotel downtown--even waited a few minutes while we finished up lunch and took photos in the lobby. Matt was engaging, friendly, and amazingly knowledgeable of the city and its rich history. Loved his humor as well:) He even added a few stops outside our itinerary, which was so unexpected and generous! We would not only book Matt and the Private City Tour company again, but we will recommend it to all of our friends visiting the Windy City. This was absolutely one of the highlights of our stay in Chicago. Thank you Matt and Private City Tours for an unforgettable experience!
