We enjoyed continuing the magic for one more year thanks to Santa’s authentic look and nice gentle, low key presence.
Response from Santa Chicago:
Santa Chicago arrived on time . His outfit is beautiful and he was well prepared to give presidents and take pictures. He is great for Christmas.
For us we were looking for more energy ( dancing , songs and entertainment )
Well what can I say apart from amazing ! I booked Santa for my boy age 10 and my parents that were visiting from England , every one loved him , it was a total surprise for them . They were all crying with joy . And Santa was amazing singing with us taking photos giving out presents, and telling my boy stories 35 minutes of total joy in the family . We will never forget thank you. 😍😍😍
Santa Chicago was perfect! He was great with the kiddos and parents. It was our third year having him visit my store and we look forward to many more years to come.
Santa Chicago has been a great hit for our Winter Fest and tree lighting here in Valparaiso, IN. I get a ton of feedback of how great and authentic he is! We’ve booked him for the past few years. He’s been great!
Response from Santa Chicago:
Thank you Dan, I am looking forward to returning.
Santa was awesome! He made our event perfect!
Great Santa. Highly recommend
Also when booking with Santa I had said we wanted to read a story & sing songs and he started to pass gifts & I had to ask he to do a story and he never sang songs.
He seemed rushed!!
Response from Santa Chicago:
Hi Lori, I am sorry that Santa disappointed you.
Christmas Eve does not seem like the time to ask what children would like for Christmas and it is a little late to ask the children to be nice. That said, Santa will work on what to talk to the children about before next year. Too late for your event I know.
Santa did not see any email or GigSalad message about how you would like the visit to go. Santa probably forgot or got your event mixed up with another event.
You did get Santa on Christmas Eve, his busiest day, so he had to rush to get to you. He was probably still on an adrenaline rush. He noticed that this was not the first time that visits were scheduled too close together and that Google Maps traffic estimates are less accurate Christmas Eve than the rest of the year. Next year he will have an extra 15 minutes between visits.
Santa is planning to bring books of Christmas carols next year, so everyone can sign along with Santa.
Thank you for your specific feedback. Santa will use this to improve his visits and maintain his over all 5 star rating.
This is the second year we’ve had Santa Chicago join us for our wildly popular Christmas Day Brunch, to rave reviews! Guests especially liked that he suggests fun photo ops and poses.
We had Santa delivery cheer and gifts to employees at 2 locations....All were stunned and the next day are still talking about how wonderful he was and how he made them feel appreciated and special. Was a great moral booster.
From the staff...
"Santa was Amazing and it put a huge smile on our teams face."
"This was the best we all thank you so much for having Santa Claus Making our day. And taking his time to make us feel special."
Thank you sooooo much!!!
Santa Chicago was absolutely amazing! The kids loved him, and the adults felt like children in his presence. He went above and beyond, and we look forward to seeing him next year 😉 Thank you again Santa Chicago
Santa Chicago added the perfect touch to our Christmas housewarming open house celebration. Santa was very professional and provided a great experience for all guests, both children and adults. Good communication leading up to the event as well.
Response from Santa Chicago:
Thank you, it is good to see you helping Toys for Tots.
The experience was good and Santa was really nice and accommodating. I would have liked it if Santa made more of a grand entrance instead of just walking in. Maybe if we would have spoken before the event and I told him exactly what to do that would have helped.
We were hosting a 4th of July party at the lake with this years theme being a Christmas party. The weather “cooperated” by being in the mid 90’s, but Santa still made his appearance and never skipped a beat. A true professional and was one of the highlights of the night. If you are counting on Santa being at your event, you can’t do better than Santa Chicago!
Did a great job with my 2 year old son. Was a great experience all the way around.
We greatly appreciated Santa's participation in our Christmas Day Brunch. His interactions and posing suggestions during photos were particularly great! We received a lot of comments on the quality and authenticity of his wardrobe, as well.
Great appearance and believable
Response from Santa Chicago:
Hi Judy, 16 out 17 of my reviews are 5 stars.
You gave me 3 stars.
I am looking to improve, so I would like to know what Santa can do to be better.
Amazing. That's was our experience last night. Santa Arrived on time, took photos, sang a song, told a story and passed out gifts. This Santa added that magical feeling.
We enjoy this Santa at our company party. He took lots of pictures and was the best price on this platform. If we had to hire someone again for sure it would be this Santa. Thank you Santa you were great!
I was very happy with Santa Chicago, with all the crying from the new one and two olds who have not encountered Santa before, Santa kept his cool. The older children having gone thru the terrible twos behaved appropriately and made the family Christmas Party a lot of fun. Children photos as well as family photos with Santa was a hit and even older family members had he occasion to sit with Santa for a photo opportunity. I will want Santa Chicago back again.
The perfect santa made for the perfect surprise!
Santa Chicago was just terrific! The kids, parents and customers really enjoyed his warm personality. He was perfectly dressed and groomed! The Real Deal!
Santa Chicago was on time, professional, and very much looked the part. We would work with him again.
Santa Chicago was a great addition to my holiday themed photo shoots. Very authentic and personable. Would definitely use again / recommend to others looking for a Santa for their events. Thank you!
Santa was great! Very professional and cordial with kids.I would definitely hire him again for my Christmas party!
Right on time, santa arrived and helped create a joyful Christmas atmosphere. He sat with each child and discussed their Christmas wishes. Thanks for making our celebration even more special!
Santa did a great job! Was kind and pleasant with the kids and took time to sit and chat with each one.
This santa really looked the part. His outfit, boots, and beard looked realistic and captured the magic. All my party guests mentioned how great and real he looked. I wish we had a little more interaction with the kids asking them questions and getting them engaged in conversation, but we had a young shy crowd so that may have made it difficult to interact. I wish I had pre-planned more activities after visits with kids to fill the session. He did a great job jumping in and singing with the kids to help fill our time. Overall, it was a great experience and he did an amazing job. I would recommend his santa services to others and use him again for future events. Thanks!
Kids were very happy to see Santa at our Christmas work party.
Santa was all we could have asked for. He looked great, was on time and interacted very well!
Santa Chicago was great for our Team Member holiday party. There were approximately 200 people (adults & kids) and everyone loved getting their photo taken with Santa. Thank you Santa for making our holiday party so special!
