Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About
Weird Chicago's Private Tours:

1. How Do I Book A Private Tour?
Private tours are booked with a $100 deposit and the rest of the fee will be charged to your card on the Monday before the tour. We require that you fill out the form below with all of the necessary information. You can call us in advance with any questions or to check availability for a time and date at 1-888-446-7859 but we do need the form to be filled out before we can confirm anything for you.

2. What Days & Times Do you Offer Private Tours?
Private tours can be booked seven days a week, but some days and times are better -- or at least offer a better chance that we will be available. We will do private tours on the same night that a public tour is scheduled, but only if one of our buses is available. On most nights, we offer private tours with start times anywhere at 7:00 PM or 10:00 PM. We can offer slight variations on those times, but it depends on guide availability. We also offer tours during the daytime, just let us know what time you need and we'll see what we can do!

3. How Early Do I need to Book a Private Tour?
We recommend that you book as soon as you know the date when you need the tour! Our tours are very popular and available dates sell out quickly. The earlier that you can make your reservation, the better! Once we are booked, we won't be able to clear the date to make room for you.

4. How Many People Can You Fit on a Private Tour?
The Weird Chicago Private Tours can book as few people as you like, but we have bus capacity of 14, 23 and 39 and 55 people, depending on the size of your group and how much you want to spend.

5. Can we bring out own bus for a Private Tour?
Yes --  and we offer a different rate as long as you furnish your own bus. We do tours for school groups and larger corporate events. The price is a $500 flat fee -- unlike other tour companies, we do not ask for a per person price when you are using your own bus!

6. Can You Pick Up Somewhere Other than the 600 North Clark Street?
Absolutely -- that's our standard pick-up spot but we have picked groups up at hotels, bars, restaurants, and even private homes and apartments. However, if we do pick up at anywhere other than 600 North Clark Street, there is a $50 charge for time, gas and distance. We only pick up in the city and as close to downtown as possible. We do not travel out to the suburbs for pick-ups because it cuts too much into the time of the tour.

7. Can I Customize a Tour to Combine things that you Offer?
Yes -- we have a list of different tours that we offer below but you are welcome to mix and match the tours as much as you like. We offer combinations of any of them -- just use the "special comments" box to let us know what you'd like to do.

8. Can we bring alcohol on the bus?
Yes , absolutely! Guests are always welcome to bring alcohol along on private tours, pub crawls, bachelorette parties, etc. You can bring a cooler on the bus and you're welcome to bring your own ice and beer and load up the cooler. No glass bottles are allowed unless alcohol is poured into plastic cups to prevent breakage on the bus. You must also bring a garbage bag along and clean up after yourselves. If an extreme mess is left on the bus, a $250 clean-up fee will be applied to your tour. Please note: This applied to guests 21 and older only and if anyone is over-served or disruptive, they will be asked to leave by the guide.
