Margaret clearly has a passion for the Pedway and Chicago and has done extensive research about the Pedway, which she shares with exuberance! This tour is different from other tours, was fascinating, and most appreciated on a cold Chicago day!
It was fun learning about one of Chicago's obscure elements. Taking the tour with Margaret was like touring a city with a knowledgeable and funny friend . She even went the "extra mile" to get us (still underground) to our next destination once our tour was over. She is very genuine in wanting to help people understand the pedway and does it in an entertaining way. We had a great time.
Margaret was an excellent tour guide. Energetic and personable. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city. I learned a lot. Thanks Margaret!
This was a great tour of stuff we had not seen. Very helpful and friendly tour guide. She knows her stuff. We have already told everyone about how great this tour is.
Our, guide, Margaret, made the tour very fun and interesting. Just wish it was longer than 90 minutes! Now I want to see some of the other pedways in Chicago. We will recommend to our friends.
Margaret was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and time with her. We highly recommend it.
Great tour guide, great tour. Saw and learned so many new things about Chicago with a tour guide who clearly loves the City! Time just flew by!
Very passionate and funny guide
This was our second tour with Margaret. She is a lot of fun and has a passion for the pedway that makes the tour quite interesting. She takes the time to give as much detail and facts that makes the tour truly unique!
something i never knew that exists, thank you Margaret for the Pedway tour!
Margret made the tour interesting with her energy and knowledge. Very quirky piece of Chicago.
Not knowing what to expect, with tongue in cheek I can easily state that this tour met my expectations. (insert laughter here) The Pedway Tour my wife and I enjoyed was informative, educational, and fun. It's good to be learning stuff, and to enjoy the experience. Margaret is a personable, knowledgable, likable young lady. Her leadership on this tour kept us moving, with enough stops on the walk to keep even us oldies rested and energized. We recommend this tour as a unique introduction to visitors, and as an extremely informative experience for lifers. Neal W
Not only do you get to see parts of Chicago others do not, you get to learn a lot of facts about the city also!
Magaret's passion for the Chicago Pedway was matched only by her knowledge of interesting facts about a feature of Chicago which many residents know little about. We enjoyed this tour and would recommend it - especially on a rainy, windy or cold day!
This was my second Chicago Elevated tour. Both were very unique and interesting. I've lived in the Chicago area for twenty years, but there is still so much to discover!
Margaret is very knowledgeable and fun
