Choose from Three Options

The Frank Lloyd Wright tour pits the works of the Prairie School master against those of modern-school pioneer Mies van der Rohe, concluding with a stop inside Wright’s light-drenched lobby in The Rookery building. On the Signature tour, guides spotlight Chicago’s 140-year arc of design stretching back to the Great Fire of 1871, chronicling its destructive yet purging properties. Bodies sweep along lower Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive on the Underworld tour before shooting down tunnels that stitch together the city’s subterranean fabric. All tours are 90 minutes long; for a complete schedule of tour dates and times, please follow the individual links above.<p>

Chicago Savvy Tours

Chicago Savvy Tours’ knowledgeable guides unearth the Windy City’s gritty and occasionally hilarious history as they lead groups in and out of architectural landmarks during walking tours heralded by CBS Chicago as one of the city’s best. Tours wind past distinctive architectural works such as Adler and Sullivan's Auditorium building, the Mies van der Rohe–designed Federal Plaza, and the John Hancock building, named after the inventor of autographs. Year-round tour dates are available, with the heaviest rotation of times in the summer. Children are welcome, though like politics and prescription-drug ads, most of the content appeals to adults.
