Vad du kommer att göra
You will experience Chicago in the three best ways possible: by boat, by "L," and on foot! You don’t have to worry about choosing a boat tour OR a walking tour: we’re giving you both in ONE tour -- and throwing in "the L" for fun! First, you’ll meet your guide in the heart of the Loop, and go for a 10-minute ride on our world-famous “L” train -- one of the only parts of the system that goes both underground AND above ground. You'll then disembark in one of Chicago's 100 different neighborhoods, Chinatown, going beyond what most tourists who simply stay downtown will experience. You'll take a leisurely stroll through Chinatown, where your guide will explain its history and architecture, and point out a few of the best restaurants and a few spots to shop while you’re in town. [*****NOTE: THIS IS NOT A FOOD-TASTING TOUR! We will show you the easy 10-minute "L" ride back to Chinatown if you want to return there, explore, and dine!*****] After your exploration of Chinatown on foot, you’ll participate in one of the top activities to do IN THE COUNTRY, and jump on a boat with your guide for breathtaking views and architectural history along the Chicago River on a 35-minute ride back to the center of the city, ending not far from where the tour begins. Why choose walking or a boat when you can do BOTH in one tour? And get a ride on the "L" for fun?
Hillary & Adam
We are two guides (Hillary & Adam) that make up a tiny, woman-owned business, Inside Chicago Walking Tours. Hillary started this business in 2014 because she knew there is nothing better than walking up to and *into* buildings to see their art & architecture up close. In five years of business, this tiny company beat out all competition in Chicago to become #1 on TripAdvisor. Our tours are the opposite of the big-box, corporate, scripted tours. We specialize in unique, engaging, eye-opening experiences of downtown Chicago's architecture, history, and even simply beautiful (and often secret!) views. Besides teaching and guiding, we love helping people find stuff in the city to do on their own as well: live music, food, events, etc. We can't wait to show you around!

Var ni kommer att vara
This tour will involve three parts: an "L + city center" part (~25 min), a visit on foot through Chinatown (~45 minutes), and a river tour (~35 minutes). Over the course of 2 hours, you'll experience not only Chicago's world-famous architecture from its best vantage point -- the river -- you'll also get to check out an off-the-beaten-path neighborhood to give you an idea of what lies outside the city center, just waiting for you to explore!
