After reading the rave reviews on Tripadvisor, I contacted Terry, the owner of Walk Chicago Tours, about booking 2 half-day tours for our group of 3 adults and 5 teens. As a result, I now am returning to add my own rave review! From our first phone conversation,Terry was incredibly responsive and keen to create two personalized tours based on our groups' unique interests. For the first tour, he himself guided us around the downtown area, highlighting the outdoor art, architecture and Tiffany glass. His pride and enthusiasm for Chicago was contagious and he knew just how to tell stories and share facts to keep us all engaged. Even the teens were wowed! Two days later, Judith Dunbar Hines (google her name to find out that she is a major Chicago personality!) led us on a wonderful tour highlighting the Mexican food sensations in the Pilsen area. Both Terry and Judith are interesting, personable, thoughtful and generous and we felt fortunate to see the city through the eyes of these two Chicagoans who are very involved in their city and accomplished as well. A tip to consider: Before our tours I'd sent Terry and Judith photos of our group members along with a brief description of each of us. This allowed us to recognize each other and gave them a quick overview of our interests and personalities. They enjoyed having this information and we felt like old friends in no time. They each contacted us after the tour with generous offers of additional help and we were touched and impressed.
