What to expect

Ready for the ultimate day out in Chicago? This tour combines two of our favorite Chicago experiences (Chicago Culture & Architecture and Classic Bites in River North) for one epic Chicago adventure!

You will start the tour under the dazzling marquee of the Chicago Theater (where you might recognize the neon sign from the movie musical Chicago). You’ll then head off into the bustling city, where our first stop is inside one of the best-preserved spaces built for shopping in Chicago, featuring an unforgettable atrium at its core. You’ll then head towards the Chicago Pedway. This unique feature of Chicago is used by locals and commuters daily to move about the city in a network of underground tunnels. You’ll head back above-ground near City Hall, and on most weekdays, be able to head inside to see the classic interior design and architecture. Next, you’ll make your way to a spot where you’ll share a sweet treat, and a local tradition: Chicago-style popcorn. Weather permitting, you’ll take a stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk while taking in views of several soaring buildings, including Marina Towers, the Britannica Building and the Sears Tower (now known as the Willis Tower). From there, you’ll make your way to another delicious destination. Along the way, you’ll be able to enjoy views of the world-famous Wrigley Building and the incredible Chicago Tribune building, the heart of Chicago’s thriving and historic journalism industry. Your second tasty confection is locally made chocolate from a Chicago staple.

Finally, you’ll take a stroll through the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue. You’ll end up in the picturesque Millennium Park, home to the iconic Bean sculpture. Here (or nearby), your guide will conclude your tour and point you in the right direction toward more amazing sights, great lunch spots, or a drink recommendation inside one of the most amazing spaces in the city.
