Our tour guide, Rick, shared HIS enthusiasm, details, & trivia of the Windy City as he guided our fairly large group mostly underground from 111 E Wacker Dr TO the Renaissance Hotel. While I didn't expect to be educated on this tour, I was delighted to learn a LOT about my beloved city, Chicago. Very collaborative, Rick engaged EACH &... More

I had a great time seeing new views of Chicago that I had not seen before, and also learned some things about the history of the city that I had not known. Richard knew a lot about the city, and made it fun to learn more facts. I might try to take another tour with this group in the future.

I have taken a keen interest in the many neighborhoods of Chicago and in the city's history for many years, but I never had come a cross a company that goes beyond the superficiality of the usual touristy highlights. The depth of Dan's knowledge , his unsurpassed passion for the history of the city, combined with his knack for story... More

Signed up with a group of friends for this Saturday walking tour and we had a blast! Dan, our tour guide, parlays his love of history very successfully, which left us saying by brunch time we wished we'd all had a history teacher like him back in our day! Dan is very knowledgable about Chicago history, but makes it fun... More

I recently took the North Side Essentials tour with Dan and it was so enjoyable and informative. I have lived 10 miles from Chicago for the last 25 years and was not aware of all of the great hidden treasures that we have in the city. Dan's knowledge of the city and his story telling ability are fantastic and really... More

This is way more than a bus tour of Chicago! Dan, the tour guide, gives history, stories, teaches the culture of different neighborhoods, explains the cycles the city has gone through, offers snacks and beverages, is very courteous and there is seemingly few things he doesn't know about the City of Chicago. Well worth the time and cost if you... More

Chicago's skyline is a treasure, for sure, but...take a walk with Marcia (herself, a treasure) as she leads you down, around and through Chicago's treasure-filled Pedway. Best two hours on your feet. Make certain she gets you to roar as you stand in the sweet spot (she'll know what you mean).

My husband and I spent a delightful afternoon immersed in a very entertaining Chicago history lesson provided by our terrific guide, Sharon. Sharon was so knowledgeable, and had a knack for storytelling that few guides possess. Definitely recommend this tour!

I was introduced to Chicago's REAL UNDERGROUND (not the Capone, Dillinger variety) ... and what a great tour it was!!! There's a whole other city under Chicago's busy sidewalks. Our tour guide 'Marcia' informed and entertained me (and 8 other guests) for 2 hours in Chicago's underground PEDWAY labarynth. We popped up to ground level to see architectural wonders (the...

We took the 9:30 Saturday brunch pedway tour with our three kids. It was a very enjoyable and informative tour for all of us. Living in Chicago for almost 25 years, I did not know most of the facts that our tour guide, Dan, shared with us. Tour started with a 45 min walk through the pedway, and an hour... More
