Getting around a city on foot can be challenging, especially if you have a bad sense of direction or you're carrying a 6-foot party sub horizontally. Navigate effortlessly with this Groupon.

The Deal

Led by a knowledgeable tour guide, guests make their way through the Loop, Pedway, and Riverwalk by foot and by boat. A trek of roughly 1.5 miles grants sightseers a chance to take in the Tribune and Wrigley buildings, the Chicago Cultural Center, and works by Picasso, Chagall, and Miro. Guides relate the history of the Iroquois Theater fire, the Great Chicago fire, and the Wingfoot Express disaster, while pointing out architectural marvels. The tours conclude with a mile-long, 15-minute voyage down the beautiful Chicago River, ending at Trump Plaza.

Tours take place every Tuesday at 10 a.m.

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, tourgoers 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.

I would definitely recommend this tour and with the groupon it really pays for itself since you get 1 drink and some light apps along the way.
