John, guide, and Wayne, driver, were both excellent at their jobs. Chicago is a beautiful city and your 40+ person bus was clean and comfortable ( only 15 participants). We saw the outside of the theater where Dillinger spent his last night, the alley where he was shot, and the Harry Caray Restaurant where there was a lot of historical news articles and photographs to look at. Everything else was “the building used to be here where... “ or “see that McDonalds, that used to be...” Again, John did an excellent job painting the historical background and telling the stories of the north side and south side gangs. I just wished that Chicago had the foresight to keep/rebuild/remodel some of the 1920s/1930s historical places that defined that era.
We upgraded from the 'regular' Seadog tour to the Extreme - best decision ever! There is a time for the sedate Architectural tour, and there are times when you just really want to go fast. We had age ranges from 8 years to 59 years in our group - hard to say who enjoyed it more. We felt very secure & safe on the boat - heads up - sit in the front to get less wet. Highly recommend!
John was our guide and he was so much fun to have leading us through the whole thing! He’s very knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun & interesting! Highly recommend trying this out!
Would highly recommend this way of seeing Chicago. Enjoyed the freedom to hop off and stay as long as needed to see attraction and then hop on to go to the next attraction.
We had a great experience. Our driver was very knowledgeable and quite funny as well.
