I am a frequent visitor to Chicago, but learned so much on this tour. Rick, our tour leader was so knowledgeable, articulate, funny and entertaining you didn't realize the extent of the information he was sharing. You must be able to walk to take this tour and stand for sometimes lengthy periods of time. Rick showed us buildings I never knew existed. He was open to questions and frequently asked if anyone had any questions or comments. A binder was provided to each participant in order to help demonstrate the historical information being verbally provided. Said binders were returned at the end of the tour. The tour was great, and will take some of their other offerings on other visits to this great city.

I was thrilled to finally learn about the history of Chicago from a knowledgable, organized and interesting tour guide. So much more interesting to walk around the city with stops where the story unfolds. Maps and historic photos were shared by giving all of us, a well organized portfolio. The highlight was sitting in the cultural center looking out the windows and seeing the city today as we learned the facts about the Chicago fire. The 2.5 hours flew by as we walked at a reasonable pace and had opportunities to sit and hear the narrative. I highly recommend this tour. Rick was a great guide.

I will admit that I was skeptical about how entertaining and educational a pedway brunch tour could be. Dan really blew our minds with his artful and enthusiastic manner of presenting historic and architectural facts relevant to Chicago, and his clever ways of drawing us in and having us interact with him and the information he presented. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't experienced it! If you think you know about Chicago, this tour will make you think again! Plus, Dan introduces information through very interesting quizzes, with great prizes for the correct answers. He gets everyone very excited about learning, and we were all shouting out answers and having a great time. I would recommend this tour for future architects, historians, teachers, and for everyone of all ages who want to learn about Chicago while having a great time!

The Chicagowalktour.com takes you on an amazing pedway tour of the city underground. Dan O'Connell our tour guide was excellent. I went on the pedway lovers tour on Friday morning with 20 other people. He started off by making teams for the trivia game he plays along the tour. I went by myself so this made it fun and I made a new friend. Dan is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and had some entertaining stories to tell. I would definitely recommend going on any of Dan's tours. Great way to learn about the city and meet people.
