Það sem verður gert

We'll meet in an easy 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!). We'll 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, hallways and overhangs, we'll get rare, unique views and traverse the city like a local while staying warm and dry. For an additional perspective, we'll jump into some buildings to admire the architecture and art. If you're curious about Prohibition era ganster lore and our speakeasy past, we can cover that too. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor walking as our walks and views will take us outside, especially if the weather is pleasant. 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 decades. 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 have disinfecting wipes too

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a mapgeek, history enthusiast, architecture admirerer and food fanatic. I'm a trained city guide (5star tours!) and I've been doing fun excursions for friends & family for decades. 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 history 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 was an amazing guide. I truly loved this unique experience. All the information she gave me was interesting and unique. She is really passionate about her city and know everything about it. She made us take the L and even offered original chocolates in the Fannie May boutique. The experience was even better than expected and she was truly interested in getting to know us and giving each of us the best experience of Chicago she could.

Kelly was a fantastic guide, very knowledgable about the city. We hit a few roadblocks with buildings & parks being closed, but she was able to improvise & show us more. Gave us some great lunch & dinner tips as well. Kelly is friendly & delightful, would recommend her for any tour!

This experience made me fall in love with Chicago. Kelly is a very friendly person, knowledgable about the topic, and fun to hangout with. We did a lot in two hours, but more importantly, we went to multiple essantial sights that were hidden. I cannot wait to be back to Chicago and do her wine and food tours!

5 STAR RATING!!!! This was my first time visiting Chicago with my Sister and our friend. We were so happy to have participated in this trip with Kelly, our tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about her city and very helpful. We got to see a lot of sights and landmarks in the 2 hours and learned many historical facts about Chicago. We definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to explore the sights and history of Chicago!

Fleiri ábendingar

This tour is fabulous year-round but if you're visiting Chicago in the colder months or here on a rainy day, THIS is the tour for you as Mother Nature won't stop us! For kids, I'm prepared to make the tour interesting with quizzes/prizes! If you'd like a diffent day/time, send me a message request.
