This fascinating tour reveals the historical and architectural features which tell the story of Chicago, home to America’s first and tallest skyscrapers.
Find out how the great fire of 1871, which destroyed the commercial district, gave designers and entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow their city upwards to make the most of limited space.
As well as the soaring skyscrapers, you’ll discover other Chicago treasures like the Lakeshore, the Conservatory, the glorious green parks and boulevards, the university campuses, and the incomparable genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.
This exclusive small-group private tour allows greater personal interaction with your guide.
