My Fiance and I have been on 3 tours with Chicago Detours and very much enjoyed each of them. Elizabeth was our guide for the walking architecture loop tour as well as the bar crawl later that evening, each was informative and interactive. As locals working downtown it was great to learn more about our city and the details of things we miss in our every day lives downtown. Based off our great experience with the first tours we booked the Chicago Temple Sky Chapel tour and was not disappointed, Amanda was our guide and was informative and engaging the entire tour as expected. The Methodist Temple tour however had the added bonus of the Senior Pastor was with us inside the building and gave us additional insight into the history and workings of the building. This was not a 'religious' tour, he was never preaching religion but rather the history of the building from the early 1800's to today. The tour ends with sparkling white wine on the buildings spire terrace which is the personal residence of the Senior Pastor and his wife. A wonderful view of the city as well as a very interesting and unique residence downtown, again things as a Chicagoland native I was completely unaware of. We look forward to going on other tours offered by Chicago Detours in the years to come!
