Marche à travers l'architecture et l'histoire, toute saison

Chicago, États-Unis

Expérience organisée par Kelly

2 heures, Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

I pack lots of sights, sounds and experiences on this tour so put on your walking shoes! We first meet in a sheltered spot to discuss the tour and begin our way trekking through Chicago. We'll use the expansive city sidewalks, plazas, parks and Riverwalk as well as part of the underground Pedway system that is known to only a percentage of Chicagoans (we have 5 miles of Pedway!). Learn about the history of The Windy City (as well as why we're REALLY called The Windy City) while digesting some of our city's most prominent sights. Using some of the Loop's buildings and sculptures, we'll get rare, unique views and traverse the city like a local. If you're curious about Prohibition-era gangster lore or our speakeasy past, we can cover that too. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor walking as our trek will take us outside, especially during warmer weather. Please let me know if you have any allergies or food sensitivities, as we’ll be stopping for an authentic Chicago snack that's been around for more than a century. Whether you're a local or this is your first visit, I promise to pack lots of interesting tidbits into our 2 hours together!

COVID-19 UPDATE: We're spending more time outside as there is PLENTY to see & keeping the groups small so we can practice safe social distancing.

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a map geek, history enthusiast, architecture admirer, and food fanatic. I'm a Certified city guide (5-star tours!) hosting walking, food, kayak and virtual tours. The Windy City has been my home for 26 years and I know how to get around to experience the best sights and bites. Working in the food and beverage industry for 10+ years has given me added insight into some of Chicago's hottest spots. I'm also a Chicago Architecture Center Open House volunteer, river kayak guide, & Chicago History Museum member, using their library to research Chicago as well as the deets of the 125+ year Victorian building I call home. I've traveled the world doing walking tours and know from personal experience how to make the best of our time together. I try to make a new friend every day, come play with me!

Kelly is very good and tries to personalize the tour to the group and what you want to see. She's very detailed and makes it interactive by asking questions, taking pictures, and answering any questions you have. Very knowledgeable. Hope to take another one of her experiences when back in Chicago.

Kelly was an exceptional tour guide. Not only did she share her local expertise, she also geared the tour toward our groups interests about the city.

My friend and I booked this experience not really knowing what do to in Chicago, I’m so glad we did! Kelly is so knowledgeable regarding all the city has to offer & knows so much regarding its history. Any questions we had along our route were answered without hesitation & with enthusiasm for what Chicago entails. We loved learning about all the small details in the architecture & how it ties into the history of the city. So much better than booking with a larger agency because of the small group, makes it so much more personable like having your own private tour guide of Chicago!
