Kelly was great. Listening to her talk about the history and architecture of the buildings was amazing. She's so knowledgeable. The route took us on the pedway, over bridges, on the riverwalk, a candy store, magnificent mile, and millennium park. We also walked by the Chicago river and it was beautiful. The city was quiet due to the pandemic and recent rioting but it made the tour better because we had the streets to ourselves. This tour is great way to get familiar with the area. After the tour my daughter and I were able to navigate the Loop area by ourselves.

We went on the "From Architecture to Food Tour" with Wallach and it was a great 5 hour tour of the city with a tremendous young Chicago native. About 3 hours of architecture followed by 3 days worth of food! Wallach's knowledge of the surrounding architecture along with his history knowledge of Chicago is unsurpassed by anyone in the city, I'm sure. 5 hours goes fast, but bring an empty stomach!!
