Sarah A.The Pedway Tour September 13, 2014
I went on the Pedway tour with Margaret. I have lived in or near Chicago most of my life and never knew that such an extensive and bizarre system of walkways existed. She also introduced me to the Chicago Cultural Center, a beautiful building with awesome exhibits that you can just hang out in for free. Margaret was fun, knowledgeable, and full of enthusiasm for Chicago. I definitely want to go on her Redlight tour soon.

Thoughtful, original presentation. Indepth knowledge and careful preparation... mixed with humor and wit .. makes Chicago Elevated's tours among the very best in Chicago.

My wife, two grandchildren, and I completed the Disaster Tour with Margaret. Her animated presentations at each stop on the tour made for a very informative and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this tour. I grew up in Chicago and I learned several things I had not know prior to this tour.

We had a great time exploring the Pedway, Margaret takes you on a hilarious and informative tour. Our favorite part was the Tiffany dome inside the Cultural center, hidden gems everywhere.
Melanie E.The Pedway Tour April 26, 2014
Recently went to Chicago with friends and we went on this tour that my friend scheduled for us. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. We met Margaret in the shopping plaza and had some small talk, she was so instantly likable. She was a little bit off she said because her cell phone died but you would have never guest that if she didn't say anything. She gave us a fascinating look at the pedway under the city. Such an odd underground passage way but so very cool.
I highly recommend taking this tour with Margaret. She rocked it out. Thanks Margaret, we had so much fun that we wanted to hang with you for the rest of the day

Margaret was awesome! She explained the Pedway and gave us history of Chicago. Kids loved her bubbly personality!!! Recommend tour to anyone in Chicago.

Heart. Here's a look from the heart of a Chicagoan, and it always says more as if the reader (well, ME) was along for the walk and the conversation. Well done and very insightful!
Brisk C.The Pedway Tour February 2, 2014
Margaret Hicks taught me about Chicago history and culture while making me laugh and want to learn more during her 90 minutes underground Pedway tour. Highly recommend for anyone looking for something fun and unusual to do while in Chicago - especially during a cold or wet day because it is all indoors. I plan to take one of Margaret's other tours next time I'm in Chicago. She is a delight and her love for and knowledge of her city is contagious. Highly recommend.
