We toured the Ukrainian Village - Kevin prepared an informative tour for our group of four. The Village is rich in history and Kevin's presentation was filled with interesting facts. I highly recommend Kevin.

Went in some beautiful buildings that we wouldn’t have considered without the tour. Kevin knows Chicago history well and had a lot of interesting stories. Nice length for a walking tour.

Last week I went on my third tour in Chicago with Kevin of Wild Onion Walks. My first two tours with him had been private ones as I had specific goals in mind for researching historical novels set in the city. Last week, he led my group of 21 people on a fantastic tour that proved to be a highlight of the weekend. His knowledge is encyclopedic, his enthusiasm is contagious. He's professional, prompt, and always exceeds my expectations! I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

This was my second tour of downtown Chicago with Kevin of Wild Onion Walks...and he does NOT disappoint! His knowledge of the city and its history is so vast as he took us around the loop showing us important architecture and sites where events occurred in the history of Chicago. His communication in setting up the tour was very quick and at the end he gave us several recommendation's on where to eat . I highly recommend a tour with Kevin when you visit Chicago, he is the absolute best! Thanks Kevin for treating my family to an awesome tour and will see you the next time I am in Chicago! Take Care and God Bless! Cynthia
