While strolling on the scenic River Walk, entertaining and informative guides let guests of the history tour in on the storied background of the stunning architecture that surrounds the Chicago River. The tour, currently ranked 2nd best in Chicago on TripAdvisor makes stops at acclaimed sites such as the McCormick Bridge House Museum, Trump Tower, and the Wrigley Building as guides explain how the site of old Fort Dearborn became one of the nation’s biggest centers of commerce and culture.

During the "Borgers & Brews" tour, guests can tour the River Walk as guides talk shop about the city’s history and lore before making a pit stop at the original Billy Goat Tavern. Inside, guides discuss how the great Chicago fire changed the city’s destiny and birthday candle traditions as each guest chows down on the shop’s famous double cheezborger and one beer, both of which are included in the cost of the tour.

On weekend mornings, tour guides lead groups around the River Walk before hitting Houlihan’s outdoor patio or cheery pub for a hearty brunch buffet with coffee and sodas. Once guests have had their fill, they take to the River Walk again for a calorie-burning jaunt and the conclusion of their tour.

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. 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.
