If you are staying at a Loop area hotel, your guide greets you in the lobby to begin your tour experience. If you are a disabled tourist or have special needs to be addressed, Walk Chicago Tours devises a completely accessible itinerary at no extra cost. There is also no combining of groups or joining groups with strangers. Each tour reservation is a private promise...only your group with your own private guide(see FAQ page of their website). Guides at Walk Chicago Tours have been carefully chosen based upon their natural ability to engage visitors and to narrate historical facts,culture and urban lore. The company motto, "A Story on Every Corner", is typical of the ownership's insistence that Chicago's history,its neighborhoods,its culture and urban lore be delivered to visitors in an entertaining and informative manner that appeals to a wide array of groups. In fact,several of the guides are former teachers with years of experience at engaging listeners. The result has been the reputation that Walk Chicago Tours is Chicago's most competent story telling ambassador.

Large groups are accomodated by the use of multiple guides. See their website and visit their FAQ page for answers to most of your questions. Email or call and they will respond immediately. .
