Chicago Tour Group
I took the smallest group ever through Chicago; a 24-year old band director, 3 adults, and 19 students. Add the bus driver and me, and we had a total of 25 people. I am usually not excited to do a small group, because they get too cozy with me, asking a lot more than a group would and should, but this group was great! It was the last group of the season for me, and the best group ever. It has been a great Spring! Here's what we did in three days: Shedd's Aquarium, Navy Pier, Gino's Pizza, Millinium Park with "The Bean" (Cloud Gate), Blue Man Group, Hancock Building's 94th floor,dinner and a show at Midieval Times, Six Flags theme park, and our bus was hijacked by the "gangster" Big Julie for a Capone-Era gangster tour of Chicago.

Looking much like an empty bus, the girls were bored with heads down, tapping away on their cell phones during the gangster tour - but the boys heads were up!
