"Thanks again for giving my husband and I a walking tour of the Gold Coast. We enjoyed the historical perspective, architectural insights, mural explanations, nice anecdotes, and brisk pace. It was fun, upbeat, and educational, plus the knowledge you shared with us made us extremely excited about our move to this wonderful, historical city. We very much look forward to our next walking tour with you!"

"Going on a tour with Sally Kalmbach is an amazing adventure--her depth of knowledge and her joy in sharing it make Chicago history come alive. A terrific experience for young and old, tourists and Chicago natives!"

-Kathryn Johnson


"Sally Kalmbach's tours authentically capture the feel of the era when Bertha Honore Palmer reigned as the queen of Chicago society. Her meticulous research has unearthed fascinating and little known stories of the Palmers and the elegant Gold Coast neighborhood they called home. Presented in an easy to follow style with just the right touch of humor."
