One of the highlights of our trip to Chicago. We were able to go inside buildings we would never know about and see amazing mosaics. Our tour guide was fantastic, it was obvious he really had a passion and knowledge of this topic. I highly recommend this tour!

I'm so happy I found this tour company! It's such a great way to discover not only touristic but much more deep levels of the city in a group of dedicated city lovers and if it's not a basic tour like this Tiffany one you could know even more from Chicagoans you meet in your group. Thank you! I did 3 tours with you and they were amazing!

It was a wonderful tour, the guide was fabulous, and I have been busy sharing all that i learned. I have recommended it to others visiting Chicago and some others who live in the Windy City.
Thanks for a great tour

An excellent tour, very informative about Tiffany glass and Chicago architecture. Also includes free voucher to the Institute of Art, worth 18$ and outstanding.

This was an excellent tour, conducted by a knowledgable and friendly guide. I also did two other tours with the Chicago Architecture Foundation and would recommend them too. It's a great way to learn something about the character of a city that you'd never learn otherwise. I recommend very comfortable walking shoes and sun protection.

A nice historical and beautiful tour of Tiffany and architecture. Takes around 2 hours with relaxing stops. Tour guide said that there was no tipping.

Enjoyed the tour very much. The guide was well informed and so I learned a lot
Since the tour begins at the Art Institute I suggest including the Tiffany pieces on the second floor next to the rotunda.
The time of the tour is short for the amount of walking required. We had to keep up a very fast pace through busy streets. We did loose one member. I think for anyone with any kind of difficulty in walking they could not keep up. At times the tour leader was almost out of sight.
A suggestion for all tour leaders. When going from place to place be sure that all of the group has assembles before beginning your comments.

Good tour, our tour guide was really knowledgeable, well spoken and kept the tour moving while answering all questions and not making us feel rushed. We saw mostly glass ceilings - beautiful and one stop was glass mosaics - beautiful too. I am glad we did the tour and I would recommend it to anyone interested in architectural ornamentation.

The trip was pretty good although the group size was too large (we were told that usually groups are only one half the size that ours was). That also made it very difficult to hear the docent whose voice was not that loud to begin with. This was an efficient means of seeing many of the Tiffany pieces. Also, we did not receive the free gift from Macy's as advertised.
