We loved the pedway tour! Dan our tour guys knows everything there is to know about CHICAGO. This includes history, architecture, lore, and geography. The tour was informative, interesting, and fun! We saw many sites while traveling only a few blocks, and the majority of the tour was underground so we did not freeze to death! We really enjoyed Dan's... More

Want to spend an afternoon with someone who probably knows the history of Chicago better than the mayor? Sign up with Rick! He's knowledgeable and great fun...and very proud of his city. You'll learn far more than you ever expected and have a great time doing so. Fran Hamlin

Passionate, knowledgeable, interactive tour guide is what you are looking for when you are exploring new sites or visiting places you have been before. Dan combines it all. It was very educational tour filled with fun and knowledge.

I was looking for a private walking tour for my family--something not easy to pull off in the middle of February in Chicago. The time of day was fairly specific, and the weather could have made the whole thing miserable, but Dan was really easy to work with and accommodating. He made the whole experience painless by arranging quick pop-ins... More

Was really impressed with Dan and his Chicago Pedway explorers tour. Even my 14 year old enjoyed it. The tour itself was interesting and peppered with interesting factoids, trivia, contests along the way, etc.. I've been to Chicago 30-ish times and did learn a number of new things on this fun tour. I highly recommend this tour, especially if it's... More

In our group of 10 people 4 were Chicago based and rest 6 were visiting professionals from India, none of us knew what we were going to see and do on this Pedway tour and took a chance. Actually, We all enjoy so much that I do not have enough words to explain. After living 40+ years in Chicago area... More

I've taken a ton of tours over the years both personal and group tours and I can say this one was the best. Dan was super knowledgeable, excited about the subject, personable, interesting, and even gave us several small unexpected gifts along the way. He made Chicago history so interesting and knew the answer to any question thrown his way.... More

We had a fantastic time on Valentine's Day taking the History Tour with our guide Dan. He was knowledgeable, energetic, and very enthusiastic for the entire time we were all together. We were able to briefly visit a number of aspects of the city we had never encountered, and we learned a great deal. Being a lover of history myself,... More

We loved our tour - Taste of the Pedway. Our host was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. We sampled food at 5 interesting and different places (all tasty and good!). The tour is well organized and filled with great tidbits of information about city, the pedway and the architecture we saw. D & R
