Make your own way to Wrigley Building Plaza to meet your guide for your 1.5-hour walking tour of the Chicago River Walk.
Start your tour with an introduction to Chicago's history, then take in iconic sites including the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower, InterContinental Hotel Magnificent Mile, Pioneer Court, and the Chicago River.
Stroll across the Michigan Avenue Bridge (now Du Sable Bridge) to the River Walk. Hear fun facts and interesting stories about Chicago history, such as the Chicago River and its harbor, the Battle of Fort Dearborn in 1812, the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, the SS Eastland disaster, and the filming of Batman and Transformers movies in the city.
You'll also see architectural gems along the route and learn about their backstory. Stop to check out buildings such as the Aqua and Aon buildings, Mather Tower, Jewelers Building (35 East Wacker), Marina City, Wolf Point, the Art Deco-style Lyric Opera House, and many more.
Your guide keeps things lively with trivia challenges and prizes. Expect to walk at a leisurely pace with stops for rest breaks and a refreshment along the way. Return to the Wrigley Building on a short ride by water taxi (ticket included) at the end of the tour.
