What You'll Get
Set out in the morning or afternoon along this central business district, home to many of the city’s iconic structures. Expect to cover a half mile (0.8 km) during an easy 2-hour stroll with plenty of stops to focus on the visual experience of downtown Chicago and get in-depth perspectives on its history.
Enter into a church in a skyscraper, and slip inside the former Marshall Field and Company Building for a glimpse of the Tiffany & Co–designed ceiling decorating the atrium. Pass through the contemporary shopping and dining complex of Block 37 on State Street, and see the untitled 50-foot-tall (15-meter) Picasso sculpture at Daley Plaza.
Along the way, learn about the Windy City’s art history and architectural design with your expert tour guide, and view archival images of Chicago with maps, historic photos, and documentary video clips on shared ipads. You’ll also maneuver through the Chicago Pedway System — a network of climate-controlled underground concourses, passages and sky-bridges that connects buildings throughout downtown.
Your tour concludes at the Chicago Cultural Center, a Chicago Landmark building completed in 1897 and originally the city’s first central public library. Peer up at the marvelous stained glass dome before making your way to your next destination.
