Fascinating neighborhood - a full-fledged Mexican-American community complete with Polish and Czech influence. Joyce knows this area very well and has planned a great way to see highlights easily. There are some neat restaurants and bakeries...continued

This is an excellent tour for a Sunday afternoon. I love how this Latino community has made room for other people while still holding on to its unique heritage. Joyce helped me look at this community as the little treasure it is. I can't wait to...continued

Great insight received on the neighborhood as well as the magnificent artwork in the many murals along the walk. National Museum of Mexican Art is definitely a GEM of the Chicago art scene & worth a visit!

Excellent knowledge of Pilsen. Tour guide went above and beyond as well as spend longer time than required with the tour.
Stops include a Mexican bakery where you can purchase baked goods (very nice break from walking).

Joyce was a great tour guide. We can't wait to try her Old Town or Chinatown tours next. Even though we live in the city, we learned and saw so much that was new to us. We saw about 25% of the amazing murals in Pilsen and having some...continued
