Chicago Architecture Foundation

With a mission to inspire people to discover why design matters, the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF), a nonprofit organization, offers many educational programs and tours which help locals and visitors appreciate the city's architecture. CAF began leading walking tours of the Loop in 1970 and has expanded to many forms of urban exploration: boats, bus, bike, "L" trains, and even Segways. Their volunteer docents lead tours after completing a graduate-level 10-week training program. In addition to hosting over 85 tours, the CAF hosts a variety of youth-education activities, lectures, special events, and rotating exhibits that highlight Chicago and its many communities.

This time was the third time I did a tour with CAF and they have all been exceptional. I have no background in architecture but always enjoy and learn with them. Their tours are a little more expensive than others but are worth every penny!
