The tour guide was as entertaining as the tour itself -- a one-woman show! I enjoyed the greetings along the way from the regulars with businesses on the Pedway. The weekday tour has more happening but still was able to learn a lot about the inner workings of transportation in the city --- and how to get around myself!

Tour guide Margaret Hicks is very knowledgeable, animated, and humorous. She expertly explained the many facets of the Pedway and its history, answering many questions raised by members of the tour group. She also marvelously drew in younger children and made them an integral part of the group. I could not have asked for more!

If you want a fun and unique diversion this is the tour for you. Our tour guide, Margaret Hicks, was informative and entertaining and she definitely knows the Chicago Pedway. Check it out: The only thing that I would recommend is that if at all possible you take the tour during the week. Some of the pedways are connected to office buildings that are closed on the weekend. Have fun and maybe I will see you on the pedway. Karen A. Groen

Margaret's enthusiasm and passion for Chicago were evident as she humorously and expertly guided us through part of Chicago's Pedway! We loved our tour of a part of the city we never even knew existed! Highly recommend!

It's an offbeat tour with an offbeat tour guide. We went on a Saturday - some of the Pedway is closed due to the weekend as each section is controlled by the building above the Pedway - nevertheless we saw a good portion - very interesting perspective on Chicago's unknown underground walkway. Nice diversion on a hot day or cold day - I think it would be better on a workday but more crowded. Guide was knowledgeable about the Pedway - history, politics, access and future.

The tour was informative. We liked the fact that it was a two hour tour. You do spend time in Macy' s learning about the history of that building, so every aspect of the tour is not underground... FYI.

I had heard of Chicago's pedway, but I wasn't sure what or where it was! Margaret gave a very informative tour of what is going on UNDER our great city! Even though I live in the Chicago area, Margaret provided new historical highlights of Chicago's architecture as well as current places of interest. It was a great tour!

This was an excellent tour of the little known Chicago Pedway! Out tour guide was informative and entertaining! There were only four in our group, so we were able to converse and ask questions as we went along. I previously knew about the existence of the Pedway, but was glad to have a guide to show us the way and give us the history of it. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chicago and to my friends who live there!

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!

We had been to Chicago on 3 previous occasions and wasn't aware of the pedway, we came across the pedway tour while looking for things to do. It was really enjoyable and we would highly recommend it.

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.
