Great tour by Mimi....who knew there was so much artistic endeavours here in Chicago. A very interesting and manageable trip around The Loop with advice for beyond. Fabulous!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Genie. It truly was my pleasure meeting you & touring you around! Safe travels.
Tours by locals on the first day in any town is such a good idea. Mimi F. was our tour guide in Chicago. We saw places that the everyday tourist would just walk by and not understand what they were walking by or know that there was something to be seen. It was a hot day and so Mimi had us in and out of beautiful hotel lobby’s throughout the day. Mimi is knowledgeable and easy to get along with. We felt like we were being shown around by a friend. Thanks Mimi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It truly was my pleasure meeting you both and touring you around!
Mimi organized a wonderful customised Chicago downtown tour of 6.5 hours for us. She is super-knowledgeable about a city she clearly loves, particularly its architecture. Additionally, she is a lovely person who is fun to be with. Our lunch stop was perfectly chosen. Finally, she laid on brilliant weather for us! You are amazing Mimi! Thanks so much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Keith. It truly was my pleasure!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two hour walking tour of Chicago with Mimi K. She was very knowledgeable and we saw and learned so much in the two hours. We would highly recommend Tours by Locals ( also used it recently in Vancouver ,BC) and Mimi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jen! It was truly my pleasure meeting & touring you and Tom around.

Great tour. Relaxed, personalized, informative, and beautiful. Mimi was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, laid back, and very pleasant. With her background in architecture and art and her long relationship with Chicago, she was able to give us detailed descriptions, complete with factual information and a few personal touches, of some of the city's premier landmarks. Mimi was also able to improvise on the spot, taking us to a building I happened to mention I wanted to see and one she had not planned on.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Olga, for your kind words. It was great meeting you & your Mom and touring you both around. It really was my pleasure!

This was a great tour - Mimi was very personable and knowledgeable about Chicago's architecture and history. We enjoyed the mix of old buildings, newer buildings, public art, spectacular interior spaces and outdoor spaces all within a few blocks of each other. It was our first visit to Chicago and we made an excellent choice booking this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jennifer - it was truly my pleasure!
