Had a Chicago loop tour with Kevin. Very interesting and learned lots about Chicago’s history, architecture and famous Chicagoans. Highly recommended. Kevin is easy-going and obviously loves his hometown.

I haven’t been to Chicago since I left it, 45 years ago, after my 8-1/2 months sojourn there for grad school. I was poor and had little time, so whatever the Second City had to offer, I experienced very little of it. I'm not a big fan of tours, but I wanted to see what I had

Words cannot be found to explain how good Kevin’s Loop walking tour is. One of the best and most interesting tours I have ever been on. Kevin is so enthusiastic about the architecture and so knowledgable as well. There was only my husband and I on the tour. We never stopped and

Suzanne, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I'm thrilled to hear that I met and exceeded expectations! It was wonderful to share this great city with you and Colin. I hope that you will make a return visit and that I might have the privilege of revealing more of what makes the Second City number one!

Gave Kevin advance warning about our history skeptical teen in tow, and he absolutely nailed the tour for our group. Entertaining and full of facts and nuance without ever becoming pedantic. Encouraged questions. Loads of fun details I’d never heard even after living here

Patrick, thank you for taking the time for sharing your thoughts. I'm truly humbled by your comments. My goal is always to peel back the layers and reveal elements of Chicago, that others may not focus on. I seemed to have certainly done just that, with your family! I would be honored to share more about the city we both love, on your next visit. Thank you, again, Patrick. Kevin

Kevin is passionate and knowledgeable and interesting. It was great to learn about Chicago and see some beautiful buildings and interiors (many of which we would not have seen without his pointing them out). The time flew by as he took us around, his enthusiasm was infectious
