Private Guided Tours

If you are a group coming to visit us in Pontiac, we may be able to arrange a guided tour. Our guided tours can be tailored to meet your needs. Options include a trolley tour, walking tours, or a combination of both.  

The Pontiac Tourism Office works diligently to accommodate all requests made by groups for private guided tours. However, manpower, equipment, and time limitations may prohibit us from meeting every request. If you have a group of more than 10 and would like to plan a guided tour, please contact us - (815) 844-5847.
