However, as our tours are walking-based, we do hope our guests come prepared for unexpected weather changes, such as sudden downpours. We say this not to place any responsibility on our guests but to ensure everyone has a comfortable experience.

We recommend that groups assemble at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time. However, Chicago is brimming with energy and excitement (including loads of free things to do), so if you wish to arrive earlier and explore the starting point or its surroundings, you’re more than welcome!
Punctuality ensures a smooth experience for all. Our tours commence at the scheduled time. However, in the rare case of emergencies, we might make exceptions. We always recommend being on time to make the most of your Magnifico experience.
