This is a new tour for this company and well worth doing. The tour started with a short video about the 1893 fair and we visited the site after a short bus ride and walked some of the spacious fair grounds that are all park land now. The guide supplied a booklet with maps and photos which made it easy... More

This was one of the best and most informative tours we have taken in this beautiful city of Chicago! Rick, our guide, did a wonderful job of sharing the Pedway's rich history as he guided us through this amazing path under the city. Definitely a "must see" next time you're in the city!

What a great tour. The guide knew so much. No questions stumped him! The Riverwalk was beautiful. This tour was well organized, informative and fun. If you've never been to Chicago or even if you're a resident, this is a great tour.

What a nice surprise to take two walking tours with this company this summer. The first was a "River Walk Tour" with Sharon and it was delightful! The 2nd was a "River Walk and Boat Tour" with Daniel and it was so interesting. I am a former resident of IL and learned so many new things about the great city... More

From beginning to end, our private bus tour with Dan was fantastic. I had been planning a surprise birthday weekend for my husband and I looked into a few different tour companies to work with my group of 25, ranging in age from 13-83. Communication about the planning with Dan was easy, and he was basically willing to tailor the... More

A dozen of us joined Sharon and Marcia of Chicago's Finest Tours for a walking tour along the Chicago Riverfront and the Loop. Although the headsets did not always work properly (no fault of the headsets, the problem was interference from other transmissions) the tour was informative and casually paced. More than simply an architectural tour, we learned the history... More

The website billed this tour as being full of stories about Chicago's interesting characters, of which there are plenty. Instead, this tour is a walk through the Pedway, with a guide preventing you from getting lost...and that's about it. The Pedway is interesting, and it's nice, as a local, to finally understand it and see what's there. However, its not... More
