Chicago Art & Architecture 2-Hour Guided Walking Tour
"Our tour guide was great! He explained everything thoroughly and the description of the tour is exactly what you expect. You spend about 10 min at each spot (looking at the inside and outside) and as you walk from one place to the next the tour guide takes time to explain the history of Chicago and fun facts. I love how honest and real he was with us. He was patient when answering our questions and when he didn’t know he humbly told us so. At the end he gave recommendations on where to eat and shop. He made visiting Chicago feel less overwhelming. You leave the tour feeling like you have a good idea of the background and history. Loved it! Would do another tour with him again"..."
