Fantastic tour of some wonderful Chicago gems with Pawel who was extremely well informed and entertaining coupled with multimedia extracts that added so much colour. Highly recommened.
Very well informed guide and a really interesting tour. Loved the commentary on the ex Marshall Fields Dept store. The pedway history was intriging and visiting the old Library was special - the most amazing Tiffany mosaic decore
It was an awesome experience and I highly recommend taking the tour. Informative, fun and interesting .
I had a lot of fun, the walking was interspaced with long explanations. The guide was friendly. knew his stuff.
Basically. exactly what was promised.
Knowledgeable guide in Alex comfortable pace, and we even went back to experience the Chapel in the Sky. Thank you!
Fascinating tour, very knowledgeable guide with great attitude. Easy walking from one stop to the next. Definitely wouldn't have discovered any of these places on my own.
Our guide had a great personality and was very knowledgeable. It was a fun experience!
Very interesting tour. The iPads with various pictures and video clips were a nice addition. Would like an additional tour in the various lobbies of old buildings in the loop area.
It wasn't what I expected.-hoped to see more historic interiors, however really like the variety, especially the Methodist church and the pedway system. Whoda thought????
Put on your walking shoes!!!! This tour is terrific! It's fun, it's interesting, it's informative. Our guide Alex was the best. He obviously loves what he does, loves Chicago and enjoys passing his knowledge on to others. The two hours goes by in a flash. Just as a side notethe tour ends at the Chicago Cultural Centerit is stunning!!!!!
Alex was really informative and knowledgeable. It was really interesting. The stories he told about the buildings and the people behind them were engaging, leaving you to want more
This was a great tour with a very knowledgeable and excited tour guide. We saw great inside architectural sights with accompanying history and cultural information. Not strenuous although some stairs. While not a specific part of the tour we walked by the studio of NPR Story Corps. OUr guide pointed out sights in the neighborhood as well.
Really enjoyed this tour. Paul was a great tour guide and was very knowledgeable. He shared some great insights and the buildings we saw were all beautiful. Going inside the buildings gives you a very different perspective of Chicago.
I'm a 45 year resident of the Chicago area and I had no idea about the architecture we learned about on this tour. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and added little tidbits along the way. I am taking the grandchildren on this tour this summer. Chicago is a wonderful place to visit and live and there is so much to learn about this great city. Thanks for a great day.
Elizabeth did a great job of engaging us and making the history and architecture interesting.
Our guide, Pawel was so informative. No question was too much. So glad to discover these 'behind door' wonders of Chicago
It was very interesting tour. She explaind kindly and softly about many buildings history.
But it was very cold.
Next time I want to go Chicago on warm season.
It was a great learning experience. We had never been to Chicago before and by the end I wished it were longer. We got to see a good amount of the Loop and the coolest part was Marshall Fields and the Pedway system. I'm excited to go back and explore some other places.
The tour offered lesser known, informative sights, their history and beauty. It was not a demanding or lengthy tour which made it a perfect activity for a day trip to the city.
Alex did an excellent job. He was a very nice guy, thoughtful of his surroundings, knowledgeable, and had a great speaking voice!
Excellent, enthusiastic guide. We learned a lot of interesting background about places we would never have seen or noticed otherwise.
9 girlfriends from Ann Arbor took the tour, this was our 4th tour doing a variety of activities from food tours, boat architectures tours to the architecture of the loop. All have been very well done but this one gave us a glimpse of things we would never have found on our own. The guide was great.
