This interesting tour showed us some beautiful glass and provided a nice historical context for the buildings and art we saw. On a rainy cold day, we did not have to spend an excessive amount of time outside and still got to see a lot. It even had a 'behind-the-scenes feel when we saw the beautiful ceiling pieces in the Art Institute. Even though I have been in the building many times, I had never been in these rooms. Thanks to Pricilla for the 'extras' she squeezed into the tour!
Spectacular hidden gems in Chicago! I highly recommend this special tour.
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!
Loved the Tiffany Art Glass tour and the lady leading was very gracious!
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!
Guide was very well informed and added some other buildings and points of interest. A great value. definitely worth it.
Knowledgeable guide, energetic walk w/excellent assortment of architectural glass and mosaic. Hihghly recommended.
The guide was excellent with a wealth of information and delightful personality.
I loved every minute and would go again. Not too much walking for us oldsters.
A wonderful walkingtour with a very competent guide - rather private ( 2 clients !!!) . So we learned a lot about Tiffany and his work and had access to many buildings and some places you never normally wouls see .
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.

The Tiffany Architectural Tour in Chicago was outstanding! Our docent was excellent and extremely knowledgeable about Louis Comfort Tiffany.
Chicago Architecture Foundation guides are amazing -- really interesting and informative. Amazing Tiffany and other mosaics and glass. Highly recommended
Joan was a great tour guide! She was informative and knowledgeable! The tour content and weather was great!
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.
Tour guide great and enthusiastic. Lovely tour, however would not have received voucher to art institute without asking for it.
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.
Tour was great but dosen walked too fast and did'nt make sure she had all of us at last stop we were missing a person and she had to go back to last stop and see if she could find her and did' nt. with that said would do more tours
