Amazing tour of downtown Chicago. - Kevin gave us an amazing tour of the El. We would never have found the sites on our own. Highly recommend this for culture, history or architecture buffs. Kevin covered it all. He is very dedicated to Chicago. Hope to be back for a tour with him in the future.

He is the best tour guide in Chicago with so much knowledge about the city! - 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

Excellent walking tour! - Kevin is a wonderful guide and provided a one-on-one tour for me between Christmas and New Years. If you're visiting Chicago or looking to learn more about the city's rich history, then I recommend taking a few hours out of your day for this experience. Kevin will walk you around the Loop and through historical buildings to explain the development of the city. Highly recommend this tour and would bring my friends and family next time.

Kept us warm and dry - 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!
