This was a wonderful tour mainly because of our excellent guide, Greg.. He was really knowledgeable and interesting as we walked round the Hyde Park and Kenwood area towards President Obama's house, via places of interest appertaining to the life of the President and his wife, Michelle. There were three of us on the tour. Greg enjoyed the fact that we asked a lot of questions and also showed an interest in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. As part of our lovely walk, Greg took us to two houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and also into the University Museum exhibiting examples of his furniture design. This was so fascinating! We knew that Greg spent a great deal of his own time with us because we were genuinely interested. He even took us to the bus stop where we could board a bus to visit the Chicago Museum which was showing an exhibition of the Terracotta Warriors! Thank you for a most enjoyable and informative tour, Greg!

Gregory did a wonderful job on this tour. Even though we were not able to see President Obama's house because he was in the city the same weekend, we still attempted. Greg was able to make this tour as close to the real President Tour as possible. He was very knowledge and very fun. I would recommend this tour.
