"I have visited Chicago many times, but Terry Sullivan showed us a side of it that I had never seen before. It made another era come to life for us. Terry Sullivan showed us some of Chicago's real hidden gems, like Abraham Lincoln's deathbed, some hard to find Tiffany mosaics, and the site of the world's first skyscraper. He is truly one of the best tour guides we have ever met."

"Our tour guide encompassed all my needs and then some. His knowledge of the Loop's accessibility enabled us to have a barrier free and interesting ride on the elevated train. My husband and I also asked the guide to include all the architectural treasures. We were quite intrigued with the guide's stories behind the historic buildings, magnificent churches and the mastery of interior design by Frank Lloyd Wright. We were completely satisfied."

"The Tiffany Glass in the Loop walking tour was both enjoyable and educational for our home furnishings sales staff. Not only was our WCT tour guide knowledgeable about the history of the Tiffany pieces but her enthusiasm for the subject was contagious. The stories that were added pulled the whole tour together. We are looking forward to our next corporate outing with Walk Chicago Tours."

"I want to take a moment to thank you so much for your guided walking tours of the Pilsen neighborhood. The students were truly engaged in what both of you were presenting. They learned so much and were proud to share their knowledge about Pilsen's murals when we returned to school. They came back the next morning still ecstatic to show off their knowledge. We are so appreciative to have had truly entertaining and informative tour guides. It is clear in your ability to relate to the students that you must have been an excellent educator...and still are!"

"My friends and I have been on two fabulous tours of Chicago with Terry Sullivan. He makes the city come alive! Terry is well-informed, personable, and bursting with energy and information. He exudes enthusiasm for Chicago and its history. I highly recommend his tours if you want to find the hidden Chicago."

"We had a great time and learned so much about the city that we would never have known if our guide hadn't told all those stories. A true history buff could learn all he wanted to know. We could tell that our guide lived in Chicago and loved the place. My sister and I are going to Ireland next year and we only hope that we can find a tour like Terry Sullivan's there too."
"I just wanted to say that I appreciate your attitude toward including all people in your clientele. To realize that you have made it such a priority is great to see. You are a pioneer in this regard. Let's hope more tour businesses follow the suit of total inclusion of all travelers, regardless of abilities, in the coming years."

"Terry Sullivan's tours give visitors from out of state, and locals like myself, a spicy view of Chicago peppered with legendary Windy City politics, sports fever, ethnic diversity and urban lore."

Thank you to our tour guide who is the reason we would return to Chicago. He mapped out a Chicago that we would have never discovered on our own. He even helped us before our arrival when we called more than once to ask for recommendations on hotels and restaurants. His enthusiasm convinced us that Chicago was a great city. We learned more from our guide in 3 and 1/2 hours than days of research would have told us. Our guide's love for his city was contagious. You have our promise that we will call Terry Sullivan when we return.
