Our Walking Club took the Riverwalk Tour with Chicago's Finest Tours on a sunny day in October. Dan was a very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. His love of Chicago was apparent in his narration. Headphones made it easy to hear and understand, even over Chicago traffic noise and it was easy to book the tour as a group. This... More

Wife and I took the River Walk Sightseeing Tour yesterday. It was great and we highly recommend it. We found out about it on Tripadvisor and with the great reviews decided to try it. Rick Zieman was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable and was very entertaining. It took about 3 hours to do it but it sure went... More

My friend and I took the the Riverwalk Brunch tour on Sunday October 5. Having travelled from balmy Toronto, we were ill-prepared for the cold temperature in Chicago that morning. Our guide, Dan, was not only a well-informed and charismatic story-teller, he was also a kind soul who produced a spare jacket from his bag, and a second jacket he... More

Loved this tour, due to the knowledge, wit, and enthusiasm of Rick, our guide. He provided us with photographs of what Chicago looked like, from the birth of this great city, to supplement his tales of six man-caused tragedies. The two hours fly by. A great tour for not a lot of money. I highly recommend.

My husband and I had the pleasure of doing the Riverwalk Brunch Tour on a cool, but sunny, day in Chicago. Dan O'Connell was our friendly, knowledgeable tour guide who made this 3 hour tour fly by!! This is an easy going tour that is great for everyone, with a stop for a nice brunch at Houlihan's that gives you... More

Our tour took place on a cold and rainy day, but the tour guide was undaunted. He gave us the real story and many little-known facts about how Chicago became the cultural and economic center that it is today. He made the tour extremely interesting with facts and fun. The group had a great time. (Wear comfortable shoes.)

living in Arizona, the idea of being able to get around without going outside just does not cross my mind. however, if you have ever experienced a chicago winter, you would probably think differently. the pedway tour is amazing. you could literally live in there without ever going outside. the tour is 2 1/2 hours. well worth the cost. the...
