Overview

Venture inside renowned Chicago landmarks, elegant lobbies, and underground corridors on this 2-hour walking tour. Your expert guide will share insights about interior architectural features of this design-rich city — from mosaic domes to the sprawling Chicago Pedway System — bringing the details of the Windy City into vivid focus. Stop to admire Chase Tower, the Marshall Field and Company Building, the Chicago Cultural Center, and more.
  • 2-hour walking tour of the Chicago Loop's interior architecture
  • Go inside landmark buildings including the Chicago Temple, Chicago Cultural Center, and Chase Tower
  • Marvel at the architecture of the 5-story-high atrium in the Marshall Fields building with an expert local guide
  • Walk through some of the Chicago Pedway’s underground corridors and take home a complimentary map that details the system
  • See public art by Picasso and mosaics by Tiffany
  • Use an iPad to view historical photographs and video that complements your guide’s commentary
Depending on the day, set out in the morning or afternoon along the Loop 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.

Slip inside the Marshall Field and Company Building for a glimpse of the Tiffany & Co–designed ceiling decorating the atrium. Pass by 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 via shared iPads that showcase archival images of Chicago with maps, historic photos, and documentary video clips. 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.

We really enjoyed our Pedway Tour led by Alex. He was very well informed and enthusiastic and included a lot of well researched and relevant information. The tour was both above ground and down in the Pedway. We enjoyed the inside of the Chicago Temple building and the outdoor Picasso sculpture. The Chicago DeTours company offers a quality tour. We highly recommend it. Thanks Alex for your enjoyable and informative tour.
