Private Guided Tour with Marlin

Marlin is a fantastic guide. He contacted me by text a day before to give me contact information and get acquainted. At this time we scheduled a time for Marlin to meet me at my hotel lobby. This way we were able to walk together to CAI and I could see several of Chicago’s sculptures and landmarks along the way. This was my favorite part, and we had not even arrived at the museum. CAI is amazing. I enjoyed all the art I did get to see, but I need a couple of days to see it all. Marlin shares his love and passion for art and Chicago in a story which helps a person retain the wealth of information received during time with him. This tour was the highlight of my visit to Chicago. Prepare for a lot of walking. It’s well worth it.

We got to enjoy a little bit of everything throughout the whole museum! Our tour guide gave us a greater appreciation for American Art, although we went favoring The Impressionists.
