"MetroWalkz is very unique. There's nothing like MetroWalkz in the marketplace today."
"I flew into Chicago on March 24 and walked over to the Visitor's Center inside the Chicago Cultural
Center. There were a ton of brochures to look at, fortunately I saw yours and immediately set out on
the Loop tour. In three days I took four guided tours, but I think I enjoyed your self-guided tour most of all.
I kept your brochure with me at all times and when I had some spare time at Millennium Park
Magnificent Mile, I used it again. Thank you very much for putting out this great resource, for free!"
Karen M., Oakland California
"As the advertising agency for Gino's East Pizza, we are always looking to maximize our advertising dollar
to the tourist market. We have found MetroWalkz to be the most cost-efficient method of getting our
advertising into tourists hands, and the tours allow people to use the magazine in an interactive manner,
which helps get them to our restaurant."
Alan Lieberman, President, Lieberman & Associates
"In our business of brochure distribution, the measure of success is the movement of a brochure.
The MetroWalkz Self-Guided Walking Tours booklet is a top-rated mover."
