We will be taking a leisurely 2-hour walk exploring a couple of the best (and most secret!) high views, and some of the prettiest and most interesting low views of downtown Chicago. Visitors often don't know where to go, or even where they're allowed. This experience takes them inside places they'd never even consider, with carefully curated interiors & views to create a highly engaging and unique experience of Chicago's world-famous architecture. Be sure to bring a camera -- this is a great tour for photographers and travel buffs!
We are two guides (Hillary & Adam) that make up a tiny, woman-owned business, Inside Chicago Walking Tours. Hillary started this business in 2014 because she knew there is nothing better than walking up to and *into* buildings to see their art & architecture up close. In five years of business, this tiny company beat out all competition in Chicago to become #1 on TripAdvisor. Our tours are the opposite of the big-box, corporate, scripted tours. We specialize in unique, engaging, eye-opening experiences of downtown Chicago's architecture, history, and even simply beautiful (and often secret!) views. Besides teaching and guiding, we love helping people find stuff in the city to do on their own as well: live music, food, events, etc. We can't wait to show you around! (And THANK YOU for supporting small business!)
We'll be visiting a few true architectural gems in the Loop, River North, and along the Main Branch of the Chicago River, focusing mainly on secret spots for fantastic views from up high and down low. We'll be exploring the physical layers of the city that people miss if they just stick to what generic tours tell them are "must-see" stops downtown. We've got special access to high-up views that you'd never expect, plus the most unique angles!
