Reviewed 6 July 2017 via mobile

This walking tour will give you an interesting and educational tour of hidden pleasures. You'll see interesting architecture, learn Chicago history and travel the underground pedway.

Our guide, Pawel/Paul has a degree in architecture history and is an excellent guide. He is thorough without being pedantic and is very personable.

You'll see the United Methodist downtown church ( a beautiful and unusual building), pieces of public art, including Chagall's mosaic wall and the famous/infamous sculptures around Chicago's governmental buildings.

You'll travel underground across the Loop, stopping at the underground shopping center, visit Macy's (formerly Marshall Fields) and end up at the Chicago Cultural Center, formerly the Chicago Public Library main building.

Pay special attention to the stained glass dome in the main area. It's gorgeous!

Really different tour
Margaret is energetic and informative and clearly has a passion for the pedway.
It's a unique tour of a unique series of spaces that are definitely worth checking out

A great off-the-wall tour to discover a part of Chicago that even many long time residents aren't familiar with. It's indoors, so it can be taken any time of the year comfortably. The tour guide, Margaret, is both funny and knowledgeable about the subterranean hallways below the city streets. Don't let the description scare you...you'll feel like you're walking through a mall. Lots of walking and some stairs, so bring comfortable shoes. We attended a free tour in January, but I feel it's well worth the normal cost. Our tour lasted just under an hour. Would definitely recommend this tour to friends.

Margaret was entertaining and friendly as our guide. This is a brief introduction to the Chicago Pedway system. There were only three of us on the tour, a great size for a tour. Margaret gave suggestions on good places for lunch afterward. The tour lasted 1 1/2 hours and ended in Macy's, the former Marshall Fields.

A good friend and I booked this thinking it would be interesting to do on a cold winter day in Chicago. The tour was very informative, interesting and unique. Margaret the guide/owner has obviously done a bit of homework on the Pedway and enjoys sharing the information with her customers.
