PRIVATE CHICAGO HIGHLIGHTS TOUR DETAILS
Our mission is to share stories and places locals don’t even know. So your private Chicago highlights tour will include the broad overview of Chicago architecture and history from an insider perspective. You’ll get a grand view of the magnificent skyline of Chicago from Museum Campus and also see Chicago’s architectural masterpieces, like historic skyscrapers, grand mansions, or modernist buildings. All the while, your professional tour guide will share perspectives on how cities grow and change over history.
You’ll learn about the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and the incredible growth of Chicago around the turn of the 20th century. The city was a hub for communications, retail, and industry. Your private tour group will see magnificent architecture from this era and up to the most recent in contemporary architecture. The private group highlights tour uses the stories behind buildings to bring meaning to your experience of Chicago. The tour is two hours, and we can extend it to three or four with some stops for interior architecture, a Chicago neighborhood, and a break for coffee or lunch.
