Chicago's Finest Tours

 
Chicago’s Finest Tours offers a multitude of various themed tours including their most popular History tour that tells the story of how, out of humble beginnings, Chicago became one of the world’s leading “alpha cities!” Our tour guides love narrating this story and so many of our others. Each tour is designed to focus on different chapters of this saga. We specialize in private tours featuring school groups, scout troops, homeschool groups, and more. All tours are customized to meet specific group needs including tour content, venues, length, start time, tour routes, and refreshment options. 
 
"Educating our guests is job one but we do so in a fun and entertaining manner," as the great Marshall McLuhan was fond of saying. "Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either."
