Your guide uses Google Street View images along the river to simulate travel and envelope you with incredible, 360-degree views! With years of experience leading river tours for private groups, your Chicago Detours tour guide will give commentary that shares stories and places even locals don’t know of both famous and overlooked sites. He or she will connect the city’s roots in transportation with its growth, challenges and revival. You’ll gain new perspectives on architectural history during this engaging 50-minute presentation, which is led via Zoom.
This virtual boat tour will be unlike any architecture river cruise you’ve taken. Plus, you get to satiate your curiosities with live questions for the guide! Guests can also express ideas to each other via comments in the chat window.
