More Information



During the tour, guests embark on one of these legendary “Urban Safaris” and hear fascinating stories of Chicago’s jubilant but often tragic past. In addition, guests hear entertaining anecdotes about many colorful historical characters like Jean Baptiste du Sable, Matthias Schaffer, Marshall Field, Reggie Bowles, Louis Comfort Tiffany and many more.

After building up a good appetite walking the Pedway, it is time to stop for a hearty brunch at Houlihan’s. Guests sit comfortably inside a private dining area and listen to more gripping stories of Chicago’s past.

Houlihan’s brunch buffet features everything a traditional brunch buffet has to offer including; fruit, eggs, omelets, toast, muffins, bacon, sausage French toast and so much more. Coffee service and soft drinks are included in the price.        


After eating, it is back to the Pedway for a second round of entertaining storytelling and calorie burning!
