Au programme

I pack lots of sights, sounds and experience in this tour so put on your walking shoes! We first meet in a sheltered spot to discuss the tour and begin our way trekking through Chicago. We'll use the expansive city sidewalks, plazas, parks and Riverwalk as well as part of the underground Pedway system that is known to only a percentage of Chicagoans (we have 5 miles of Pedway!). We'll learn about the history of The Windy City (as well as why we're REALLY called The Windy City) while digesting some of our city's most prominent sights. Using some of the Loop's buildings and sculptures, we'll get rare, unique views and traverse the city like a local. If you're curious about Prohibition-era ganster lore or our speakeasy past, we can cover that too. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor walking as our trek will take us outside, especially during Covid for fresh air. Please let me know if you have any allergies or food sensitivities, as we’ll be stopping for an authentic Chicago snack that's been around for a century where they also serve the city's best hot chocolate with an extra punch. Whether you're a local or this is your first visit, I promise to pack lots of interesting tidbits into our 2 hours together!
COVID-19 UPDATE: We're spending more time outside as there is PLENTY to see & keeping the groups small so we can practice safe social distancing. I have disinfecting wipes too

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a mapgeek, history enthusiast, architecture admirerer and food fanatic. I'm a trained city guide (5-star tours!) and I've been doing fun excursions for friends & family for decades. The Windy City has been my home for 26 years and I know how to get around to experience the best sights and bites. Working in the food and beverage industry for 10+ years has given me added insight into some of Chicago's hottest spots. I'm also a Chicago Architecture Center Open House volunteer, river kayak guide & Chicago History Museum member, using their library to research Chicago as well as the deets of the 125+ year Victorian building I call home. I've traveled the world doing walking tours and know from personal experience how to make the best of our time together. I try to make a new friend every day, come play with me!

Destinations

I'll take you to see some of Chicago's prominent sights like The Chicago Theatre, Picasso Statue, City Hall, Daley Center and Plaza, Marina Towers, Riverwalk, Wrigley Building, Millenium Park and Cultural Center as well as a few things that are off-the-beaten-path. We'll view some some stunning interiors and artwork, all while learning what makes us The City That Works as well as some great stories about how things came to be.

Kelly’s love for her city is contagious. Like any great guide, she helps you see the things you’d miss. Yet she is patient to explain the the interesting background behind the obvious monuments. We had a small group, and I got to ask many questions and felt like I was strolling with friends. As a solo traveler, this was a perfect activity.

Kelly was amazing! I felt like she tried to create a relationship and talk to everybody during the walk. She was very knowledgeable about Chicago, I learned many new things

We greatly enjoyed our walking tour with Kelly. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt quite personal. I think if it was a small group, it would still feel personal. Kelly is very friendly. She has a lot of interesting stories to share. What we appreciated the most was her extensive knowledge of the buildings and history. We've been on the Chicago boat tours multiple times so we were worried that we wouldn't learn anything new. But really we learned A LOT of new things. Kelly also gave us ideas about other things we could explore on our own time. From one Chicago resident to another: Thank you very much, Kelly!

I highly recommend this tour. We took the tour on our first day in Chicago and it was perfect, it started our trip off with a good background of the city and tips on restaurants and must see activities. Kelly was very friendly and knowledgeable. You don’t want to miss this one.

We had a wonderful experience and learned so much about Chicago’s rich architectural history. The details and insights brought so much to light that we would have likely overlooked. She deepened our growing fondness for Chicago and desire to call her an additional home to say the least.
