Everything was great about the Explorer Pedway Tour! Our guide, Dan, was excellent and very knowledgeable. We had free food samples along the way and quiz's with gift cards given out as prizes.

I would have been better if you could book the tour online with the Travelzoo voucher as it was hard getting through on the phone to book a place.

The guide, Dan O'Connell, made the tour!

It was great to learn about some of Chicago's more colorful history, while experiencing the Pedway (which we never had).

2 1/2 hours is 1/2 hour too long. I enjoyed the stories but I think slightly shorter would be better.

The guide was very knowledgable and funny and made the tour interesing and fun. There is not much to actually see in the pedway but we really enjoyed the history and stories.

Great activity for winter when you don't want to be outside.
