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

It was a very interesting way to learn about another part of the city.Margaret is very enthusiastic and loves her job and it shows!
Margaret spoke of the nuances that made us that much more appreciative of the city. She answered all questions with humor and deep appreciation.
Margaret was great. It is thoroughly enjoyable seeing someone who loves what they do so much. When you realize that she is providing/sharing this experience three times a week, week after week, month after month, year after year, that's pretty special. Thanks Margaret. Keep this show going. Everyone else. Do yourself a favor. Learn something about Chicago that you'll find fascinating. From someone who probably understands it better than anyone else. You will enjoy the experience.
Learning more about our wonderful city is always a plus, and doing so in an enjoyable manner is all the better. Bravo, Margaret!
