     A wonderful group. I plan to join events more often. - 2010------------------------------ Four years later, the walks just gets better and better. Tom's Windy City Explorers makes Chicago special. Thank you Tom. someone said New York city would not be New York City without central park, Chicago would not be Chicago without this group, that is how highly I think of what Tom has created for Chicago.

     A nice bunch of walkers, and Joe has a good, laid back curator's style - most of all, if not for Meetup, we'd have no reason to walk around and get to know these uniquely beautiful and historic places.

  • Windy City Explorers

     great group...just wish there was a way to keep the number in the group so we don't look like we're getting ready to protest someone or something...charging a buck is good but it's worth more...is there a way to require payment up front, no refunds? in order to get a real world number of participants? 

    Candace J. on Jul 14, 2013.

    Lee A. on Feb 17, 2013.

  • Windy City Explorers

     A great event if challenging for those who don't live in the City. Wonder why burb-livers just don't take the Metra into town and then catch a bus or "L" to wherever they need to go? No parking hassels when you reply on public transportation. 

    ReAnn on Feb 17, 2013.
