If you have a chance to take this tour with Dan O Connell as your tour guide, do it. Dan is a retired businessman and teacher and his love of history and the city shows. He shares stories about the history of Chicago, and about the development of the Pedway system, and you definitely get great bang for your buck.... More

I enjoyed an excellent tour of the Pedway system by Mike - his knowledge of Chicago and it's history, architecture, and development is breath-taking and he spoke fluently and sometimes funnily about Chicago and the development of the Pedway system as well as more generally about Chicago for just over two hours with never a dull moment! I had an... More

Five of us took the Pedway Brunch Tour with guide Rick Zieman. We discovered the fascinating world underneath downtown Chicago, enjoyed a great meal at Houlihan's, learned a great deal about Chicago history and had a great amount of fun without having to brave the 26 degree cold windy day outside. The walking was comfortable and well paced even with... More

This was my first Chicago's Finest Tours experience. It was great! Dan O'Connell, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and fun. He presented very interesting facts about people, places and events as we walked along the pedway. We participated in a challenging idiom contest as we proceeded on the tour. We were treated to coffee or water as we listened... More

Our Chicago tour guide Sharon was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. She made the tour breezy and enjoyable while still getting a lot of information in. Using a headset and meeting up in a quiet hotel lobby made this tour convenient. I hate having to strain to hear a tour guide, and that wasn't an issue here. The... More

The River Walk tour with Dan was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and you can tell he has a passion for the city of Chicago. He is also very witty and played some trivia games with our group. I have been on a couple of tours with him and have enjoyed each of them very much. I would highly recommend... More

We had a great time with Dan on our pedway tour -- the tour included information about the pedway system and the buildings connected by it (while, of course, walking thru the pedway) -- in addition some great stories about Chicago --- well worth it -- and a couple of "treats" along the way

We took part in the River Walk & Loop Tour tour with Dan. It was very informative yet relaxed. We learnt so much about Chicago in the few hours that we were on the tour, and we definitely saw places that we wouldn't have seen if we had been exploring Chicago on our own. Dan was happy to answer any... More
