Kimberly B.Art Deco Architecture Walking Tour September 6, 2013
Seeing the buildings and Art Deco aspects were good, but we ended up with a very mediocre docent, who dragged out the tour an extra 20 minutes with information that was, at best, peripheral to the actual tour. She read off of notes (literally read them to us) and when asked where the term Art Deco came from, she had no idea.
Glenn B.Tiffany Art Glass Landmarks Walking Tour August 30, 2013
I loved every minute and would go again. Not too much walking for us oldsters.
Rose Marie F.Art Deco Architecture Walking Tour July 28, 2013
I have always loved Art Deco, so this tour was just what I wanted. The guide was very informative and well versed in the elements of art deco. The length of the tour was just right.
Jade B.Art Deco Architecture Walking Tour July 26, 2013
Wonderful tour, with a charming and knowledgeable guide. Definitely worth the money, but do book in advance!
Michael H.Modern Architecture Walking Tour July 18, 2013
This tour was organized through the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the guides are volunteers so some are better than others. We found it extremely interesting but you would need an interest in architecture to enjoy this tour.
Peter S.Tiffany Art Glass Landmarks Walking Tour July 6, 2013
hidden places, beautiful architecture
Michael H.Historic Loop Skyscrapers Walking Tour July 6, 2013
This walking tour was organised through the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the guides are volunteers so some are better than others, fortunately ours was good. The tours are on a set route and stop at buildings selected by the Foundation. It was very interesting and informative.
Michael B.Modern Architecture Walking Tour July 4, 2013
A must do! While we had admired many of the buildings we saw on the tour having the history of the Art Deco movement and the buildings explained was worth the cost. The tour guides are passionate about their subjects.
Ann U.Modern Architecture Walking Tour June 29, 2013
Being a native, I've seen all of these building before. I think anyone from out of town would be more impressed. Due to logistics, we weren't able to get close to these buildings, and there was quite a bit of repetition between the historic skyscraper tour and this one.
Sandra C.Art Deco Architecture Walking Tour June 22, 2013
What a great way to see Chicago and learn about a creative time in architecture. Informative guide and the tour was well paced to see a lot. The listening devices helped greatly. No piece of information was lost. Highly recommend this short 2 hour walk around Chicago.
Ann U.Historic Loop Skyscrapers Walking Tour May 30, 2013
Our guide was a wealth of information. Being a Chicago native, I've seen these buildings many times, but found out so much more about them. There were many that I've never been inside of and I was truly amazed.
KP B.Historic Loop Skyscrapers Walking Tour April 7, 2013
I really enjoyed this tour! It's so interesting to learn the history behind these skyscrapers. Our tour guide was so passionate about his city and it was really infectious. It was also interesting to know that they don't get paid to take the tours, so they do it purely for the passion and interest. I would recommend this tour and add in the Modern Skyscraper tour if you have time.
Zack M.Historic Loop Skyscrapers Walking Tour January 24, 2013
It was raining/light snow during the tour. The guide did an excellent job. Favorite stop was the Rookery. We went inside a handful of buildings including this building.
Karin F.Tiffany Art Glass Landmarks Walking Tour November 22, 2012
A wonderful walkingtour with a very competent guide - rather private ( 2 clients !!!) . So we learned a lot about Tiffany and his work and had access to many buildings and some places you never normally wouls see .

Good tour--and guide--wish we could have seen more interiors. Wear very comfortable shoes!
Amy S.Tiffany Art Glass Landmarks Walking Tour October 13, 2012
It was a wonderful tour, the guide was fabulous, and I have been busy sharing all that i learned. I have recommended it to others visiting Chicago and some others who live in the Windy City.
Thanks for a great tour
Francisco F.Art Deco Architecture Walking Tour September 5, 2012
The steet tour was very enlightening, the tour guide a very experienced and nice one we really enjoyed it thanks.
Red D.Tiffany Art Glass Landmarks Walking Tour July 20, 2012
This was an excellent tour, conducted by a knowledgable and friendly guide. I also did two other tours with the Chicago Architecture Foundation and would recommend them too. It's a great way to learn something about the character of a city that you'd never learn otherwise. I recommend very comfortable walking shoes and sun protection.
