Au programme

Chicago's famous "L" train connects many of Chicago's best neighborhoods. We've chosen two neighborhoods known for their foods, shopping, and rich history — River North and Chinatown — and are excited to show you a little bit of both by way of the Red Line "L."

If we could see a time-lapse video of River North from the late 1770s to now, we would witness so many necessary pieces of the Chicago puzzle falling into place. You'll learn about everything from the origins of the city itself, to the origins of foods like "Chicago style pizza," to the 1920s building boom that decorated our famous "Magnificent Mile," and much more.

After exploring part of this lively area, you'll then take a 10-minute "L" ride -- part underground, part above -- to Chinatown, one of Chicago's 150 neighborhoods that most tourists will never experience. In Chinatown, you'll learn about the history of the neighborhood itself, along with its architecture and its foods, discovering secrets along the way (like the church where Al Capone's mother prayed for him to clean up his act). This tour ends in Chinatown, allowing you to explore this neighborhood further on your own. With all the amazing restaurants and shops we'll pass by, you'll have tons of ideas for where to go afterwards!

NOTE: This is NOT a food-tasting tour, but you can easily find places to eat in Chinatown after the tour!

Not only is my company ranked #1 tour out of more than 300 on TripAdvisor, it's also been featured in numerous online publications as a "best of Chicago" tour. I'm also responsible for creating the tours and training the guides who earned Chicago's architecture river tour a spot in the 25 BEST TOURS IN THE WORLD on TripAdvisor.

Colleen was a wonderful tour guide and very informative, specifically about the architecture of the city. At the end of the tour you are near a ton of great restaurants and stores which you can explore on your own afterward. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because it is a good amount of walking. Would definitely recommend.

Our tour guide, Ian, was knowledgeable, sincere, thoughtful, and inspiring. More than worth the price and time, I consider this experience a once-in-a-lifetime kind of tour.

This was a great tour! My tour guide, Ian, was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. The tour isn’t too short or too long and the walking is a suitable distance. I had plenty of time to do other things that day which is one of the reasons I chose this tour. I would recommend this tour to family and friends. Ian was awesome, knowledgeable in the history of the city and architecture, happily debunking rumors with facts. Follow the instructions and show up a little early, it would be a shame to rush the tour. Seeing Chicago with this tour company is a wonderful experience and affordable- do it!

Good experience. You get some interesting stories about Chicago. Don't expect too much on architectural topics. It's more about stories that happened in Chicago.
