I ended being the only person who booked on this windy, rainy day. Had a wonderful private tour with docent Joseph. He was interesting, funny and informative and I loved the tour!

This tour was organised through the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the guides are volunteers so some are better than others. We found it extremely interesting but you would need an interest in architecture to enjoy this tour.

A must do! While we had admired many of the buildings we saw on the tour having the history of the Art Deco movement and the buildings explained was worth the cost. The tour guides are passionate about their subjects.

Being a native, I've seen all of these building before. I think anyone from out of town would be more impressed. Due to logistics, we weren't able to get close to these buildings, and there was quite a bit of repetition between the historic skyscraper tour and this one.
