There is also no combining of groups or joining groups with strangers. Each tour reservation is a private promise...only your group with your own private guide(see FAQ page of their website).

What a great tour! The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable and made it fun and interesting! Even though it was a group of teenagers, he still kept it engaging and everyone really enjoyed it. Ask for Terry Sullivan, he’s very knowledgeable and really cool.

I found Walk Chicago Tours on line while looking for a tour for my students. Terry was absolutely wonderful to work with while planning my field trip. He helped me plan the tour, find bus parking and find a great place for my class to eat. Before even leaving our school, Terry had reached out to me to let me know about the traffic and weather forecast! He went above and beyond to make sure we were well prepared. The day of the tour was magnificent. Both Terry and Jim did a great job working with my students, explaining the culture of Pilsen Village, showing them beautiful art, and even getting us in to see a beautiful church. They not only took us on a great tour but they also walked us to our restaurant and made sure we were taken care of before ending the tour. If you are a teacher looking for a wonderful tour and tour guides that work well with students while being more than affordable, please reach out to Walk Chicago Tours.

Terry Sullivan provided our family with a “one of a kind” experience of seeing various neighborhoods in the Gold Coast area of Chicago. He explained the history of the people who originally lived there and the role they played in Chicago’s history. Terry has great way of sharing his vast understanding of the history of Chicago in a very interesting way to those visiting this great city. If you want to see a beautiful neighborhood and learn about the people who built these homes after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 in the Gold Coast area of the city - this is your tour company. We plan to take another tour provided by them when we return to Chicago in the future. Thank you Terry Sullivan for giving us a memorable experience!!!

I did the Graceland Cemetary Tour and it was fabulous. If you haven't been it is a wonderful tour rich with history of Chicago's past. Our guide Jim was informative, and knowledgeable, telling little antidotes.
