Det skal I lave

I pack lots of sights, sounds and experiences on 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!). 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 gangster 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 warmer weather. 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 more than a century. 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'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a map geek, history enthusiast, architecture admirer, and food fanatic. I'm a Certified city guide (5-star tours!) hosting walking, food, kayak and virtual tours. 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!

I had a great time on the tour learning about chicago history and architecture. Her stories and anecdotes were interesting and kept me engaged the whole time. I wish it was longer! The surprise treat was great too. Would recommend it to both locals (like me) and visitors!

Kelly's tour was fun and informative. She used the city's architecture to highlight the history of the city. We learned a lot and saw some lovely buildings! Highly recommended!

We had a great experience on Kelly’s tour. She was very knowledgeable and made it fun. We liked her stories and the focus on architecture and sculpture. It made us realize we had only scratched the surface of Chicago!

Kelly is very knowledgeable of her city. I came out learning so much of Chicago. I highly recommend this tour if you enjoy learning how a city was founded and if you enjoy architecture, staring at beautiful buildings. We also got a bonus scary/tragic story about boat sinking in the canals. And a pit stop for a treat. Kelly loves Chicago and you can tell ❤

The only way to really get the feel for the city’s charm and history is to hang out with Kelly. She’ an awesome tour guide and such a fun person to spend time with. When you book the tour…you’ll know “Y”

Kelly was amazing. I had no clue about the places Kelly took us into. I loved how she reviewed the history and how certain events effected other events. Also, knowing the history of Chicago. Kelly was upbeat and knowledgeable. ❤
