Our guide Rick was engaging, funny, and well informed. He awarded several gift cards for correct answers to some of his questions about Chicago History. We laughed a lot and learned really fascinating stuff about Chicago.

The TravelZoo price was a good value.

I enjoyed everything about the tour. The guide Dan did a outstanding job as he was really into his job and was so much fun learning about the area and some history of Chicago that I did not know. I will go back next year and do another tour for sure!! Kudos To Dan ( Two Thumbs UP )

Guide was great.

Rick, our guide, was a trip and very knowledgable. It was quite amazing to see just how the buildings are connected and the fact that you can cover quite some ground in the Pedway. The historical background facts and tidbits that Rick provided during the tour were fantastic and interesting. He really did seem to know his stuff. A great tour and I would highly recommend it.
