Chicago Walking Tour Options

Gift cards can be used for our public Chicago walking tours. These are not your grandma’s architecture tours! Led by passionate, expert tour guides, our fun and educational walking tours will give you new perspectives of Chicago architecture and history. Tours include an interactive dynamic, presentation of historic photos and videos, and special gifts. The Loop Interior Architecture Walking Tour, 1893 World’s Fair Tour with Bars, and the Historic Chicago Walking Bar Tour are offered year-round and run several times a week since they take place mostly indoors.

Why a Walking Tour is a Cool Chicago Gift

Our Chicago architecture walking tours are excellent for both visitors and locals. We offer tours both day and evening, seven days a week, and our mostly-indoors tours run in any kind of weather. Who wants to listen to a volunteer tour docent rambling a bunch of memorized dates and names? Not us! Our expert tour guides are highly trained, smart, fun and passionate about Chicago architecture and history.

In business since 2010, we are proud to be a top-rated Chicago tour company with five-stars on Yelp and TripAdvisor. Many of our Chicago architecture walking tours integrate historic bars, food, and music history. We hope you’ll join us to explore stories and places locals don’t even know, both downtown and in Chicago neighborhoods!

We hit on major aspects of Chicago architecture, history and culture as well as explore stories and places that locals don’t even know. We go to overlooked spots, some of which are in highly trafficked areas of downtown Chicago. Our fun and highly-trained tour guides share stories of iconic places with unique angles and forgotten stories from history. If you’re looking for cool Chicago gifts and ideas for people who love Chicago, then you have come to the right place.

All walking tours include:

  • Engaging tour guide commentary
  • Shared use of iPads with video & photos
  • Cool Chicago-themed gifts for tour guests
