We enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide was fantastic. Part of the tour involves walking to several buildings in the area of the Art Institute, but even on a cold day that was not bad at all. Well worth it! We went back to several of the tour stops on our own the next day to spend more time. We highly recommend this tour.

This interesting tour showed us some beautiful glass and provided a nice historical context for the buildings and art we saw. On a rainy cold day, we did not have to spend an excessive amount of time outside and still got to see a lot. It even had a 'behind-the-scenes feel when we saw the beautiful ceiling pieces in the Art Institute. Even though I have been in the building many times, I had never been in these rooms. Thanks to Pricilla for the 'extras' she squeezed into the tour!

One of the highlights of our trip to Chicago. We were able to go inside buildings we would never know about and see amazing mosaics. Our tour guide was fantastic, it was obvious he really had a passion and knowledge of this topic. I highly recommend this tour!

I'm so happy I found this tour company! It's such a great way to discover not only touristic but much more deep levels of the city in a group of dedicated city lovers and if it's not a basic tour like this Tiffany one you could know even more from Chicagoans you meet in your group. Thank you! I did 3 tours with you and they were amazing!
