Went on this tour as a outing with a friend and found it very well done. Richard Zieman was our tour guide and was a joy to walk with. Very entertaining and I especially enjoyed the booklet that they give as a visual reminder of things they talk about. You have to give it back at the end. I have... More

We took the Chicago History Pedway Tour 4/25/15. Our guide, Richard Zieman, was fantastic. We were given a lot of fascinating information on Chicago's history and got to see part of the Pedway that I was not aware even existed. I would highly recommend this tour. There is a good amount of walking, but there are sitting breaks periodically, too.

I am a lifetime resident of the Southside of Chicago, however when I went on atour with Chicaago Finest Tour I experienced the Southside of Chicago like I had never experience it before. The tour guide Dan was so knowledgeable and entertaining that I plan to take his other tours of the city. Just Great!!! Chuck

Just went on the Pedway "Explorers" tour and I don't know how I've lived in Chicago all these years and never knew about the Pedway. Probably because I only started working right in the loop for a year, but I wish I would have gone on this tour years ago...I think every Chicagoan who spends any amount of time in... More

Dan from Chicago Finest Tours did a great job on our pedway/historical tour. The girls/moms walked for 2 1/2 hours and not once did anyone complain. He kept them busy with facts and trivia questions the entire time. It is amazing that one person has so many facts on Chicago. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

My family and I took a private Pedway Tour with Rick Z. from Chicago's Finest Tours. Rick was an excellent Ambassador for Chicago and Chicago's Finest Tours. The entire tour and especially our visit to the Mayor's office was particularly entertaining! Thanks Rick...you made me look really good to my family. We will definitely book our future tours with you... More

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
