Overview

Peek inside Chicago’s storied architectural history on a 2-hour walking tour through some of the Loop’s iconic interiors. See the Tiffany & Co-designed mosaic ceiling of the Marshall Field and Company Building, the stained-glass dome of the Chicago Cultural Center, the underground Chicago Pedway system and more. Led by an expert guide, the tour moves at a leisurely pace and covers a half mile with frequent stops.

What to Expect

 Meet your guide at the southeast entrance of the Chase Tower. As the tour begins, admire the 'Four Seasons' mosaic by Marc Chagall at the Tower Plaza, then step inside the Marshall Field and Company Building to appreciate the Tiffany & Co–designed ceiling inside the atrium. Visit the colossal 50-foot-tall (15-meter) outdoor Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaz, then explore the subterranean world of the Chicago Pedway system, an extensive network of climate-controlled, underground concourses that connect buildings throughout downtown.

As you stroll along the central business district—also known as “The Loop”—learn about some of Chicago’s most famous buildings via shared iPads showcasing archival images of Chicago with maps, historic photos, and documentary video clips. Your tour concludes at the Chicago Cultural Center, a Chicago Landmark building, completed in 1897 and originally the city’s first central public library. 

Say goodbye to your guide and head on to your next Windy City destination.

Rainy day rescue!

Mr Bean showed us interesting interiors and exteriors with great enthusiasm. We delighted in the church in the skyscraper. And the cultural Center was BEAUTIFUL! We would never have found it. Thank you for giving us a great time on a rainy day!
