Chester was a wonderful tour guide and very knowledgeable about the neighborhood, artists, murals, and local museums/galleries. We truly enjoyed ourselves and found a great restaurant for a bite after the tour. Would recommend Lupita's tamales to anyone in the area.

Tour was interesting. For a non-pro, guide was great and Pilsen was fascinating and well worth seeing. Would do a tour with Chicago greeters again.
