The Downtown Chicago TV & Movie Sites Tour exceeded my expectations! It was a fun-filled adventure exploring famous sites featured in both classic and contemporary films. The tour guide was entertaining and kept us entertained throughout the journey. From famous skyscrapers to picturesque streets, we got a taste of Chicago's diverse filming locations. Being able to stand in the exact spots where some of my favorite movie scenes were shot was a surreal experience. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a unique and exciting way to explore Chicago and its ties to the silver screen.
