I took two 18-year-olds and a 24-year-old on the tour as we heard it was a great way to learn about the historical waterfront buildings and types of architecture. The tour delivered that, and much more! Judith, our volunteer guide, knew her stuff and delivered...More

We expected it to be a tourist trap but a good excuse to see the city. Ended up being eye opening and fascinating. The guide, Adrian, was fantastic. She’s a volunteer but threw her heart into it. Well played

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

However, there may be some indoor heated tours that run during those months. You might want to search on google for 'indoor heated winter archecture tour in chicago'. Best, dan
