Chicago Detours Gift Certificates

Send your loved ones a cool Chicago gift by giving them an architectural tour gift card, good for a tour of interior architecture, Chicago neighborhoods or historic bars. An exploration of Chicago architecture and history makes for a fun and meaningful gift for history buffs, architecture aficionados, recent transplants, Chicago natives, and anyone with an adventurous nature. A Chicago Detours gift card is great for the holidays, birthdays, and thank you’s to anyone who loves our fine city.
