It's a great way to discover some of Chicago's most famous sights and get away from the crowds

As you traverse this fascinating network of walkways, you'll hear about how the city's former mayor, Richard J. Daley, acquired the famed Picasso sculpture that now rests in Daley Plaza, and view the section of the Pedway where Christopher Nolan's Batman film The Dark Knight was filmed.

Best tour ever. Pace was great. Learnt about the hidden secrets of Chicago I didn't get on any other tour. The stained glass exhibit blew my mind and the history Margaret had about the evolution of the districts, buildings etc was great. This is a must do when you come to Chicago

My family and I enjoyed the tour of the Chicago Pedway. We were surprised that this underground world existed having visited Chicago for years. This was a perfect tour for a chilly spring day. We were greeted by Margaret who really made the tour worthwhile for us. Her knowledge of the architectural history of Chicago and the enthusiasm she displayed really made for an enjoyable and educational experience. We have already recommended this tour to friends of ours.
