Wat je gaat doen

I pack lots of sights, sounds and experience in this tour so put on your walking shoes! We first meet in a sheltered spot to discuss the tour and begin our way trekking through Chicago. We'll use the expansive city sidewalks, plazas, parks and Riverwalk as well as part of the underground Pedway system that is known to only a percentage of Chicagoans (we have 5 miles of Pedway!). We'll learn about the history of The Windy City (as well as why we're REALLY called The Windy City) while digesting some of our city's most prominent sights. Using some of the Loop's buildings and sculptures, we'll get rare, unique views and traverse the city like a local. If you're curious about Prohibition-era ganster lore or our speakeasy past, we can cover that too. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor walking as our trek will take us outside, especially during Covid for fresh air. Please let me know if you have any allergies or food sensitivities, as we’ll be stopping for an authentic Chicago snack that's been around for a century where they also serve the city's best hot chocolate with an extra punch. Whether you're a local or this is your first visit, I promise to pack lots of interesting tidbits into our 2 hours together!
COVID-19 UPDATE: We're spending more time outside as there is PLENTY to see & keeping the groups small so we can practice safe social distancing. I have disinfecting wipes too

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a mapgeek, history enthusiast, architecture admirerer and food fanatic. I'm a trained city guide (5-star tours!) and I've been doing fun excursions for friends & family for decades. The Windy City has been my home for 26 years and I know how to get around to experience the best sights and bites. Working in the food and beverage industry for 10+ years has given me added insight into some of Chicago's hottest spots. I'm also a Chicago Architecture Center Open House volunteer, river kayak guide & Chicago History Museum member, using their library to research Chicago as well as the deets of the 125+ year Victorian building I call home. I've traveled the world doing walking tours and know from personal experience how to make the best of our time together. I try to make a new friend every day, come play with me!

AMAZING!!! My first Airbnb experience was so worth the money. I was hesitant about it but Kelly was so personable, friendly and knowledge about the city. You can tell she really enjoyed teaching me about Chicago and its architecture. It was a little cold and rainy, but I didn't mind at all as she is a great storyteller and I leaned 1000x more about Chicago than I would have on my own. Kelly absolutely sold me on the Airbnb experience!

Kelly is an excellent guide and we learned a lot. We were happy with the small group size and everyone wore their masks.

Kelly's tour was everything we were hoping for! She provided such great information and presented in such a friendly welcoming way. We felt as if a good friend was giving us a walk around the city explaining things we never would have known about otherwise. A tremendous value. I highly recommend a tour with Kelly, hands down! Thanks Kelly!

Excellent tour. We only had one day to discover Chicago, so Kelly’s tour was a great way to learn a lot in a short period of time. Very glad we signed up.
