The Chicago Pedway is a series of walkways that connect buildings to each other so we don't have to go outside, brilliance! The best part is, even the most seasoned natives don't understand the pedway. It is a mystery to most who encounter it.

Our tour starts at the lovely Fairmont Hotel and then we'll slide underneath it all to the Aqua Building (currently the tallest building in the world designed by a woman-led firm) and sneak underneath the Swissotel too.

We'll wander through historic Marshall Fields/Macy's building and its million-piece Tiffany ceiling (it'll knock your socks off!) and we'll check out a cool film location from the Dark Knight.

We'll also be wandering nearly-empty office buildings, where normally there are many people, on Saturdays, it's quiet, almost apocalyptic in places, sometimes we're the only people in the Pedway! If you like being in places where most are not, you'll love this part.

We'll learn about the Pedway too, how it works, how to use it later in your trip if you need it and we'll pour over the map and decode confusing symbols, it's so fun.

While everyone else meanders around above, we'll explore this unknown world below. Stealthy. Warm. Dry. And strange. Just like we like it.
Other things to note
The Pedway is (mostly!) nice, nothing to be afraid of, but keep in mind there are stairs, escalators & revolving doors.

The tour does not end where it starts, tours end at State & Randolph.

I'm Margaret, tour guide, improv comedian and a life-long Chicagoan who loves this city just about better than anything. I've lived in other cities, but I always come home. Chicago is the greatest city in the world.

I have my own tour business and I've been giving award-winning walking tours in Chicago for eight years. I do it all, architecture, history, culture! But I do have a specialty, around here I'm known as "The Pedway Lady," yes, that's right, I am a Pedway nerd and the best one to show you this weird piece of Chicago infrastructure.
Ukuze ukhusele ukubhatala kwakho, ungaze uthumele imali okanye uthethe nabantu ungasebenzisi iwebhsayithi okanye i-app yakwa-Airbnb. Funda okungakumbi

Uza kube uphi

We will be in Chicago's Loop, close to the Art Insitute, Cultural Center and Millennium Park, but the best part is, we'll be walking UNDERNEATH all of those space. We'll be walking about a mile at an easy pace.

Keep in mind the tour ends a few blocks away from where it starts!

Ifumene 4.91 kweziyi- 5 kwizimvo eziyi- 95.

On a weekend when everything else was closed or cancelled in the city—social distancing, y’all—we booked this experience guessing there wouldn’t exactly be a crowd. It was a very small group and felt like a personal tour. Fun, informative, lots of good laughs, and a really weird/cool underground vibe. Margaret’s bubbly personality contributed so well to the experience. Thanks!!!

This is an experience you cannot find with any official guide company. Margaret is a wonderful guide, especially if you love off the beaten path places and quirky factoids.

Margaret was fresh, clever, experienced and knowledgable. The tour was a great experience of an often unknown area of Chicago. Her knowledge and experience of the Pedway is what makes this tour great. If you’re looking for a unique and different tour in Chicago. You’ve come to the right place.

Such a unique and fun look at Chicago! Margaret was such an energetic and fun tour guide, she was 5/5 amazing! The walk was a perfect pace with plenty of breaks so I never felt like I was trying to keep up! My husband and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Izinto ofanele uzazi

Umthetho ongokurhoxa

Nayiphi na into enokonwatyelwa ingarhoxiswa uze uyibuyiselwe yonke imali yakho kwiiyure eziyi-24 zokubhukisha kwakho, okanye ubuncinci kwiintsuku eziyi-7 ngaphambi kokuba loo nto enokonwatyelwa iqale.

Isazisi Sikarhulumente

Kuza kufuneka uzifote ifoto efanayo nekwisazisi sakho. Le nto inceda u-Airbnb aqiniseke ukuba ngubani oya kwinto anokuyonwabela. Le nto kuza kufuneka uyenze kube kanye.

Izinto ezifunwa kundwendwe

Kungaya ukuya kutsho kwiindwendwe eziyi- 6 ezineminyaka eyi- 18 nangaphezulu.

Izinto omele uze nazo

You don't need to bring anything with you but remember the pedway is mostly warm, you'll be peeling off your coat once you're in there!

Once the tour starts, as a courtesy to my guests, I do turn off my phone. If you are running late, I won't be able to get your messages or text you back. Plus, reception is terrible in the Pedway! If you're late, head towards City Hall in the Pedway and
