I'm Margaret and I'm so happy to be your tour guide in Chicago! This is the single most beautiful city and I can't wait to take you on a walking tour to prove it. I like walking tours because you can see, smell and be a part of the whole experience of Chicago. Plus, you never know what you're going to see! Whether you're looking for something a little quirky and off-the-beaten path like the Chicago Pedway tour, or you want to head outside and see all the best highlights with the best guide in the city, I'm the droid you're looking for. Ask me questions, I love them. Make a reservation, I love those too and let's get out and see this gorgeous city. PRIDE BABY!

Margaret was perfect! She spent some time before the tour to get to know our interests. I loved the hidden gems she pointed out in ornate facades, and she made Chicago history come alive. I enjoyed learning about the city flag, the Fire, Dearborn Fort,...More
