Pedicab - Rickshaw
This is our specialty and how our business began. See all the Frank Lloyd Wright you can stand to see while sitting down and riding in style aboard our eco-friendly bicycle rickshaws (aka pedicabs). Relax and enjoy as our historic neighborhoods reveal a century of architectural evolution unfolding scenic block after block. We can pick you up at any of our awesome local B & B’s or hotels or anywhere else for that matter. If you’re staying in Downtown Chicago and want an amazing and hassle-free Oak Park day-trip call or click and we can pick you up at the local CTA Green or Blue Line stops. Metra too! Can we make it any easier for you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Oak Park area? We doubt it, but we’re happy to hear any ideas you may have. Our fun-loving, fuel-free rickshaws typically carry two adult passengers comfortably. Kids under 4 ft can ride on a lap at no charge (limit 2 per rickshaw). Got a group of more than two? Talk to us. We have options. Speaking of, we have a variety of tours ranging from 30 minutes seeing 10 FLW structures to 4 hours seeing all 35 plus an option for lunch and/or a spa! (Talk about all the Wright Stuff!) Please make your reservations by phone or on our web site and please allow at least 2 hours notice.
Experience the sights and sounds of these beautiful neighborhoods like one of their own inhabitants. Meet the colorful and always interesting characters who comprised our most famous historic neighborhoods and lived in some of their most historic homes. Imagine keeping up with the Jones when the Jones were the Wrights, the Gales or the Hemingways. Perhaps you’d like to visit the final neighborhood of many of our beloved early movers and shakers? Beautiful Forest Home Cemetery is a short bike/rickshaw ride away and a very pleasant and revealing walk through time. Add a walking component to any other tour package you wish and we’ll work out the details with you. We love options and hope you do too. Please make your reservations by phone or on our web site and please allow at least 2 hours notice.
Enjoy the finest neighborhoods in the area on a breath-taking ride through time itself.
