Description

Discover Chicago's bold character through its beautiful landmarks and fascinating backstories on this thoughtfully designed tour of history, contemporary life and world-famous architecture.

This Chicago highlights tour is based on quality and not quantity. Your tour guide will point out Chicago’s best and beautiful architectural landmarks and their backstories in downtown and beyond. Your Chicago highlights tour will include the broad overview of Chicago architecture and history from an insider perspective, beyond just flying by the sites with lots of dates and names. You’ll get a new way of looking at how cities grow and change over history as we explore everything from structures that survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 to Chicago’s architectural masterpieces, like historic skyscrapers, grand mansions, or modernist buildings.

 You’ll learn about the incredible growth of Chicago around the turn of the 20th century, its power as a hub for communications, retail, and industry, its magnificent architecture, and life in the contemporary city. This private group highlights tour uses the stories behind buildings to bring meaning to your experience of Chicago. Your tour guide is a highly trained and knowledgeable professional, with a passion for sharing new ideas on Chicago architecture and history.

 The tour is two hours, and can be extended to three or four with some stops for interior architecture, a Chicago neighborhood, or a break for coffee or lunch.
