Afterward, head back above-ground near City Hall and head inside to see the classic interior design and architecture. Next, enjoy a sweet treat, and local tradition: Chicago-style popcorn. Weather permitting, take a stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk while taking in views of several soaring buildings, including Marina Towers, the Britannica Building, and the Willis Tower. From there, make your way to another delicious destination. Along the way, enjoy views of the world-famous Wrigley Building and the incredible Chicago Tribune building, the heart of Chicago’s thriving and historic journalism industry. Your second tasty confection is locally made chocolate from a Chicago staple. Finally, take a stroll through the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue.

I was impressed with receiving a communication from "Chicago Dave" the morning of the tour. The meeting location was clear and he made it easy to find him. He is personable and it was like spending the day with an old friend. He was energized from start to finish while demonstrating his knowledge of Chicago and its rich history. He was also willing to tweak the tour route based on my interest, as time allowed. I can attest that you'll see the BEST of downtown attractions. I even learned a few things about Chicago (and I live nearby). Take the tour!

Dash was a very good tour guide - he was highly knowledgeable about the architecture and history of downtown Chicago, and his enthusiasm made it even better! He took me inside buildings that I would have never assumed to go inside. I felt as though I was really being shown around by a local expert

We loved the tour itself. Tall Dave was a GREAT tour guide and we learned a lot! I had booking issues with GetYourGuide and in the future I would instead book directly with Intrepid Urban Adventures Chicago.

Dash was a really friendly and has so much knowledge about the city as a tourguide! Highly recommend this guided walking tour through the beautiful city of Chicago!

Highly recommend! Dash has an extensive knowledge about the city, making the the tour worth the value!
