Best part of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maeran It truly was a pleasure meeting you and your family and showing all of you around. I loved all the questions your little one had.

Saar GilatUnited States
Lynn tailored a tour for our facility of 5, that kept both adults and children interested and engaged! We had a great time, learned a lot and saw a lot. A good tour guide makes all the difference and Lynn was great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Saar: Thank you for your kinds words. I enjoyed meeting all of you and was so impressed with your children! I hope you will come back to Chicago again and again and again. Lynn
Loved it! Lynn customized tour to what we wanted to see. Saw some amazing sites - loved seeing the inside of buildings that I would not normally think of entering. Even helped us find out what jazz clubs would allow 17 and 19 year olds to go in - something others told me was impossible! Learned so much about the city - we would use tours by locals again and again if everyone is like Lynn!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anne for yout kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and your fine young men. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and the rest of your stay in Chicago. Safe travels home as nd come back again.
Jeffrey HartUnited States
This is the best way to see the city. Lynn gives you all the info of a public tour plus local knowledge and history you can't find on a tour. We saw site we would have never found on our own. Lynn also provides things to do after the tour. She loves sharing her city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks,Jeffrey for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour. Safe travels home.
Kelly HiskesUnited States
Lynn worked with us several times this summer as we had many events that we wanted to hire her for. She was AWESOME. The service that she provided to us was perfect. We wanted to have someone on a personal boat that would be available to answer questions and give a casual tour of Chicago. I would highly recommend Lynn and I'm sure we will be working with her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kelly for the kind words. It was a pleasure working with you, Justin and all of your nice guests. Lynn

Ken GrundyLiverpool, United Kingdom
This is our second year working with Lynn and she is an outstanding leader and advocate of this truly magnificent city. Our first day included some really wonderful architectural highlights as well as an 'overview' using our coach and then the second morning concentrated on Millennium Park, Civic Center, Marshall Fields and the Pedway. Can't wait to get back and work with you again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ken: thank you for your kind words. Hope to see you again.
Ken GrundyLiverpool, United Kingdom
our second year working with Lynn - superb in all respects
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Ken!
Alan SalganikUnited States
Lynn was an extremely knowledgeable guide. The tour was created as a date idea and she helped create a special experience for us from the initial introduction up to the conclusion. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alan: It was such a pleasure to help make your date a special evening. I'm so glad it exceeded your expectations. Lynn
Jill PringleUnited Kingdom
My tour with Lynn was fantastic. I was a first timer in Chicago and she built me a custom tour. Lynn is engaging and articulate, and both proud and knowledgeable of her native Chicago. We went into some really interesting buildings and I learned so much - not just for this trip but where to go when I come back. Definitely recommend this.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jill: Thank you so much for your kind words. Can't wait to see you again! Lynn
Andrew SeborUnited States
This was a wonderful tour despite the on and off rain. Lynn was very knowledgeable about local architecture and the city's history. I highly recommend her and would not hesitate to use her on our next visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew for your kind words. I'm so glad you had a good time. I hope you will come back to Chicago. Lynn
Amy MeserveyUnited States
Lynn was fantastic. Our groups timing got delayed before we even met up with Lynn, but she kept me calm and kept in touch with the bus driver through the whole delay. It was a COLD November night in Chicago for the tour. Once we got on the bus she led and gave the best tour I've been on in a long time. She commanded the tour bus, which was huge considering we had about 40 people on the bus who had had some "fun" at Ed Debevic's. I learned more about the city I live in then I ever knew. Great Job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amy. Thank you for your kind words. Stay warm. Lyn
Excellent architecture tour, both externally and interiors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review, Heinz.
Katy HimmlerUnited States
Lynn is very dependable, friendly, and covered a tremendous amount of territory on our historic and modern architecture tour. We saw so many beautiful lobbies! Lynn was quite knowledgable regarding dates, names, and did a good job of explaining the history of Chicago. She related well to us as a group. She also related to each one of us, individually. Everyone felt welcomed and included. I highly recommend her tour! Enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you, Lynn!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Katie: Thank YOU!
James AlperinUnited States
We have used many guides for our family visits to cities. We have a "hard" mixture of tastes, interests and attention spans. We are a tough crowd to "tour". Lynn was very attuned, gave appropriate attention to each individual and customized the tour based on the feedback she received. Family consensus: "one of our best tours ever"... and we have taken many.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim - thanks so much for you positive feedback! BTW - have you started your Spanish lessons? Don't forget to check out Speak Spanish with Michel Thomas. I found the entire set for French at our library - so no need to buy it. You might even find some lessons on YouTube. Also, don't forget to tell you oldest to check out Geocashing. It's fun! Lynn
Dagmar RathjenUnited States
To say that Lynn is Chicago's best and friendliest guide would be no exageration. Lynn's remarkable knowledge of all things Chicago, combined with her warmth and friendliness, made my visit one to remember. Tours by Locals, Lynn is your ace in the hole, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, full stop. Dagmar from Ottawa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dagmar: Thank you for your kind words. It is always a pleasure to meet new visitors to my city and share a little of what I love about Chicago with them. Safe travels home and please come again. Lynn
