This was my second tour of downtown Chicago with Kevin of Wild Onion Walks...and he does NOT disappoint! His knowledge of the city and its history is so vast as he took us around the loop showing us important architecture and sites where events occurred in the history of Chicago. His communication in setting up the tour was very quick and at the end he gave us several recommendation's on where to eat . I highly recommend a tour with Kevin when you visit Chicago, he is the absolute best! Thanks Kevin for treating my family to an awesome tour and will see you the next time I am in Chicago! Take Care and God Bless! Cynthia

Thank YOU, Cynthia! Touring with you and the other young adults was so much fun. The energy and questions were what reminds me why I do what I do. I hope to tour again with you, in the not-too-distant future. Thanks again! Kevin

Kevin gave us a wonderful tour of the famous Chicago Loop area. He offers a perspective that is hard to find, that is, from a native. He was able to give first-person narratives of how things "used to be" when he was a boy. We found this historic view informative and entertaining. His general knowledge of Chicago is encyclopediac.

Kevin was the best tour guide we have ever had. By the end of the tour we felt like friends. His knowledge of the history of the city and the buildings was incredible. We even text him questions after the tour which he answered immediately. Everyone should take this tour!

Kristina, It was wonderful to explore the Loop with you and Galen! When I get guests that have a passion for history, like I do, it adds an element that takes things up a notch. That was the case with you both. I hope you come back to Chicago again, and if you do, that we can explore further. Thank you for sharing you kind review. It means a lot!

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 saw so much that was totally unexpected. Totally deserves a five star review. Would highly recommend to everyone

Kevin was friendly enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Good mix of old and new sites in the Loop. We especially liked seeing the beautiful spectacular designs. Stained glass mosaics and iron work inside the old buildings. Exceeded our expectations.

Our personalized tour lead by Kevin, was the walking tour experience I had hoped for. His expansive knowledge of the history of Chicago along with the development of the area and the architecture of the various building styles was invaluable. We started at the Chicago Cultural Center, and if it hadn’t been for Kevin,we would have missed this gem’s interior. This was our first visit to Chicago and we are ready to come back and experience other areas specifically with Kevin.

Terrific all around. Kevin is friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour really enjoyable. So much attention to architectural details I would never have known about or noticed. We started in the Cultural Center which I probably would not even have gone to, and it was spectacular. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know about downtown Chicago.

Kevin was outstanding in leading us around the loop. He planned stops inside when it got cold and wet outside that were most informative. He talked nonstop the entire tour, answering all our toughest questions- highly recommend this tour!
