Best tour ever and I am a Chicago resident for 20 years. Margaret is the best tour guide as well.

Reviewed by: andrea.basalay, June 2016

Margaret was a wonderful guide and her city pride was contagious. I have lived in and around Chicago for 45 years and could not believe all that I learned on this tour. We were a small group, two Chicagoans and three visitors and she made everyone very comfortable. The Pedway is really another neighborhood with a history and culture of its own. Learned how to take the Blue Line and follow the Pedway to the Cultural Center without having to surface. I'm so ready for the winter concerts!
