Jane ArnoldUnited States
Lynn was a delight to work with. Starting with the pre-tour e-mail communication, it was very clear, prompt and she was very flexible. During our tour she was personable and provided great information. We covered a lot of ground in 2 hours and I loved her style of telling stories, vs just spewing facts. She also came well prepared with water and sunscreen. I would highly recommend Lynn for either newcomers to the city, or for ChiTown regulars.

Mark LauriaNew York, NEW YORK, United States
We have been using Tours by Locals for many years and have always loved the guides that we have discovered throughout the world. Lynne was one of the best guides we have ever had! She dropped literature about Chicago at our hotel the day before our tour and was early and eager to go the next day. Lynne's knowledge of Chicago was exceptional and she was extremely personable. We would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to spend a delightful day in Chicago!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris and Mark. Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to show Chris a little of my favorite city. I hope you will come back again. There is so much more to see and do. All the best, Lynn

Marvelous tour by a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. Thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Lynn, just wish we could have had more time in her wonderful city. Consummate host, came prepared with water and rain ponchos, which were not needed but very thoughtful of her to be prepared. Also supplied bus tickets. Thank you for our gift and the reading matter. Lynne, could not have done more to make our short stay more informative or enjoyable. Thank you .

Henrik HolmgrenGöteborg, SWEDEN, Sweden
In the summer of 2015, when I visited Chicago for the first time, I took a tour with Lynn. When I went back for a second visit this winter, another tour with Lynn was a given. I was not disappointed. Lynn continues to deliver world class tours! The welcoming package delivered to your hotel is a nice touch, but it is her passion for Chicago and her ability to share that enthusiasm that makes her the best tour guide I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. Thank You!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Henrik. I always consider it an honor when a guest books a tour with me but it is so very social when my gusts come back and tour with me again Here's to a third tour some day. Lynn
Ladan AlaviRancho Santa Fe, CA, United States
Lynn is most kind, professional, & informed. She came fully prepared with a perfect agenda. Throughout the tour, however, she remained flexible & ensured that we were most comfortable. She was serious about guiding our tour while doing so with a delightful sense of humor. Not long into the tour, we felt as though we were in the company of family. It would be a true loss to forego a chance to see Chicago with her. We cannot wait to see more with her again ourselves. She is a star.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ladan: you and your daughter are often in my thoughts as well. I can't wait to hear her decision and as I said if she picks UofC or NU you know I'll be here for her. Happy new year to you and yours. Lynn
Wayne OlmstedUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Wayne: thank you for the nice review. I'm so glad you had a good time - but then those of us with a wicked sense of humor get each other; right? :) Lynn
