are saying...

our sales staff:

     "We've been in business 33 year and I've worked with many receptive operators over that time.  Both Alice and Ginny at MKOT are of the highest caliber.  You tell them what you have in mind, and they will take it from there, A-Z.  Could not be easier, more supportive, or more pleasant to work with.  I would recommend them to anyone without reservation.  You'll be in great hands!"

 "We just completed our tour of Chicago. Our family was very pleased. Your guide showed passion for her city and her job. We found her to be funny, warm, and so knowledgeable! She was very patient as I know big groups can be a challenge. Please let her know that we say thanks, again!”

Everything went very well and the group leader/guide duet did work again very well. This group especially was really enthusiastic and had a lot of fun! I don’t know at this point if we will reconduct Chicago next year but you will be the first one to know if we do!"
