There are no bathroom breaks so be prepared. And there are many steps so if those are hard for you, this tour is not for you

Didn't learn much about the pedway, but it was filled with info about Chicago. If you would like to know the history of Chicago - this is a must. If you want to learn your way around the pedway, you'll need to find something else.

This is a great tour for out-of-towners or newbies that aren't really familiar with the city. I was looking for segments of the pedway that I wasn't familiar with, but I'm hip to Block 37, Marshall Field's entrance, Chicago Cultural Center and...continued

Truly educational. I have been living in Chicago for 20 years, I learned more about this city in this tour than my 20 years stay.
