We loved this tour. It was so much more than architecture. Hillary was an excellent tour guide, giving us fascinating details about the buildings and society of this great city. When we asked questions she knew the answers and presented them in a colorful, story-telling fashion. The 2 hour, 1.5 walk was gentle and she pointed out several other things to do as we passed by. We took advantage of her suggestions and spent a delightful afternoon following her recommendations. Part of the magic was listening to Hillary. She is a smart, energized, charismatic young young woman who loves her work. We even met Mayor Rahm Emmanuel at the Chicago Public Library! We joked with Hillary about her connections to famous people and she admitted that she couldn't guarantee the mayor, but to us it fit right in with this experience. Even if you live in Chicago, you should do this tour. You will be glad that you did, and definitely be prepared for great photos.
