    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: 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.

    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

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Cloud Gate, 201 E. Randolph St. Millenium Park, Chicago, IL 60601-6530

    We’ll end up in the picturesque Millennium Park, home to the iconic Bean sculpture. Here (or nearby), your guide will conclude your tour and point you in the right direction toward more amazing sights, great lunch spots, or a drink recommendation inside one of the most amazing spaces in the city.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Corporate Suites Network, 845 N State St, Chicago, IL 60611, USA

    Your food tour starts with a very well-known Chicago fare: the Chicago-style hot dog. Every Chicagoan has his or her own preference as to how the dog should be made, and you’ll get a chance to try your guides’ favorite version.

    Next up is the world-famous Chicago deep-dish pizza! An entire meal unto itself, this staple of the Chicago food scene originated in River North in the 1940s, when workers and families needed filling dishes at low prices. Your guide will take you to a pizza place that’s an icon to Chicago natives to try the real deal for yourself.

    After you’ve filled up on pizza and hot dogs, you’ll take a stroll through two more establishments, each one essential to Chicago’s food culture. We’ll then continue our tasting journey with a classic Chicago sandwich: Italian beef. You’ll sample this sandwich in a real Chicago institution — no-frills decor included!

    Our tour ends here, and your guide will be happy to direct you back to your accommodation or share tips for what else to see and do in the city.
