This tour was absolutely fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone! I took my 77 year old mother (for her birthday) and my 17 year old son, and we all enjoyed it. The history was great; the food was wonderful. It was paced perfectly; just when we wanted another quick snack break- it would be time for one! Dan was... More

Dan O'Connell was a very informative, interesting, and knowledgeable tour guide. His love of history was reflected in his presentation. We came away with a greater insight into the city of Chicago and hope to take other trips thru Chicago's Finest Tours with Dan as our guide.

Rick does a great job on the History Tour! It is a great deal of information and a great deal of walking, stairs, etc. But very educational and interesting! Chicago is so rich in history and it is all covered! If you are into history do not miss this!

Dan is an amazing tour guide and a great orator. I scheduled a group tour, a 2.5 hour walking tour, for my company's 3-day trip to Chicago, and I can confidently say that every one of my staff enjoyed this tour. The tour was tailored to my request (Magnificent Mile, beautiful architecture) and also fit to accommodate the group's energy... More

We joined a pedway tour on April 5th and had Dan O as our guide. He was an excellent historian and story teller. Dan made the tour fun and informative as we walked the halls "behind the scenes". Althought the tour was almost 2 1/2 hours long, we didn't walk long distances at any one time and had many opportunites... More

My son and I planned this excursion during his Spring Break as he will be attending UIC in the Fall 2014 and we wanted to become familiar with the Pedway as he will be using it to get to the CTA from our building in Lakeshore East. When we first planned the date my son was concerned about the time... More

I'm a native Chicagoian and never knew how to use the pedway or even where it was or how to find it. This tour walked you through the pedway showing you the many different locations the pedway branches out to. Tour is about 2 hours of regular paced walking. There is many bits of interesting trivia throughout the walk. Treat... More
