A fantastic experience! Mitch was a wonderful guide, full of knowledge about both the architectural styles and the history of the city that influenced the buildings. I never knew there was so much different detail to learn. Would definitely do it again.

I had the amazing walking tour with Rebecca on 5/16 about golden age of Chicago architecture. The tour was very informative and lasted more than 2 hours. Rebecca is very knowledgeable and passion about Chicago architecture history- I learned so much!!! Looking forward to take another tour with her in October ( Pedway maybe?)

Great tour for intro to Chicago architecture. Mitch did an excellent job and kept a good pace, but not too fast. Really puts city in perspective and explains the why of architecture. Very informative and perfect amount of info.
