I have been on one part of the pedway before and was hoping to walk a good portion of the sections I didn't know about. When we finally found Margaret in the mall (which, by the way, did not have the street address we were looking for), we found her very warm, friendly and knowledgeable. She spent a great deal...

Margaret gives a very energetic tour of the pedway which is a walk way under several building in Chicago. The tour is not very long but is is very informative. The Macy's building is beautiful and so is the Chicago Cultural Center. A good tour with an interesting tour guide!

I would always take a part of the pedway when coming to the city from o'hare. You step out of the l train on washington and then transfer to state street underground where you can catch multiple buses and the red line. The pedway extends much longer and is ver convenient especially during the summer.

As soon as you arrive at the designated departure point, Margaret gives you a warm welcome and gets everyone in a relaxed mood. She starts with an overview of the Pedway system and lets you know what to expect. She provides you with a lot of interesting tidbits of information about Chicago art, architecture and history from start to finish.... More

We signed up for this tour without knowing exactly what it was about. So glad that we did. Margaret was an excellent guide: funny and knowledgable. She guided us through the pedestrian tunnels and overpasses that connect many of the important buildings within the Loop while relating great stories that gave us good insight into some of Chicago's fascinating history.

As most of the previous commenters pointed out, Margaret is really what makes the tour brilliant (informative, enthusiastic, humorous). I would not recommend visiting the Pedway on your own tough: it looks pretty much like a mixture between a shopping mall and a subway station. Bottom line: It's all about the stories!

This was a very pleasant Sunday afternoon tour. Inside the Pedway, it was mostly deserted - nice to have the space and noise level conducive to an engaging history tour. Pacing of sitting/standing/walking worked well. At least 2 convenient restroom stops available if needed during the 2.5 hour tour. Appreciated receiving a map to keep, to have some idea of... More

Easy way to get around the Loop without exposure to the elements. Multiple shops and services available with very good to excellent service.

Margaret gave me and my family a great experience during their recent visit to Chicago. She has wonderful energy, was great with the kids, and taught us some really interesting tidbits about our town. The best part for sure was the visit to the Mayor's office complete with pictures in the press room. I would highly recommend this tour, especially... More

I enjoyed this tour with my family over Easter weekend. Margaret was great and very funny. I use the Pedway daily for work and was thrilled to learn about the walkways and some Chicago history.
