Gabe was an awesome tour guide and had a vast knowledge of the history of Chicago, the food, and the beers. It was a pleasant tour as the walking was not too much and passed all the iconic photo opprotunities. We had four different food stops and the conversation never had a dull moment. A very engaging, personable experience that my wife and I loved
