Chicago's Finest Tours
The history buffs of Chicago's Finest Tours lead engaging and dynamic tours of two very different parts of the city. During the summer, intimate groups of up to 15 traverse the various walkways of the bustling yet majestic riverfront or climb aboard a boat for a sunny river voyage, soaking in vistas of Chicago's many architectural wonders. In the winter, tour-goers head below the sidewalks with torch in hand to explore the troll-populated tunnels of the Pedway, Chicago's underground network of shops, hotels, train stations, and eateries. Regardless of the tour, the knowledgeable guides engage strollers in a two-way conversation about the Windy City, enlightening audiences with historical yarns and humorous anecdotes. Their specialty tours include a history and holiday lights tour, and a 2013 team challenge that sends groups of sightseers on a secret mission.
