Stop At: The Chicago Theatre, 175 N State St, Chicago, IL 60601-3623

We start our tour under the dazzling marquee of the Chicago Theater (where you might recognize the neon sign from the movie musical Chicago) before heading off into the bustling city.

Duration: 5-10min


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Chicago Pedway, Chicago, IL

We’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 — especially necessary during the Midwest winters. We’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.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Chicago Riverwalk, Chicago, IL 60601

Weather permitting, we’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).

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Chicago River, Chicago, IL

From there, we’ll either hop on the ‘L’ train or a water taxi on the Chicago River (depending on the weather and time of year). Either option offers a uniquely local Chicago experience! The ‘L’ train is recognized as a Chicago landmark having been featured in movies and TV shows for decades. You’ll enjoy feeling like a local as you zip past buildings and catch even more awesome views. If your guide takes you on a water taxi, you’ll be seeing the Chicago skyline from a totally different perspective, as well as sharing in the daily commute of local Chicagoans late for work.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: The Magnificent Mile, North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611

Finally, we’ll take a stroll through the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue.

  • The tour was awesome. The guide was very informative. There was three of us and we were only given one bag of popcorn. That's my only complaint

  • We enjoyed a wonderful tour with Wallach! He was very accommodating, making sure we had opportunities to warm up along the way. We knew nothing about Chicago and we were delighted with the information, interesting facts and stories Wallach shared with us. We highly recommend this tour!
