The Walking Tours:

  • Mag Mile in the Morning: Saturdays and Sundays, 7:30 am and 10:00 am.  Discover the Magnificent Mile’s surprising story and learn about some of the city’s most iconic skyscrapers, exotic private clubs, and historic hotels.  Best seen in the morning in the relative quiet before the stores open.  We saunter up the Avenue with coffee or tea in hand and take in the sights.  You will see this famous Chicago street in an entirely new way.

  • 1950s in the Loop: Thursdays at 6:00 pm.  We begin in Chicago’s Theater District, exploring what going out in Chicago meant in the mid-twentieth century.   Then it’s on to the two venues my guests love so much: The Berghoff with its quirky history and excellent beer and, finally, the great Palmer House Hotel.  There we luxuriate in the grand lobby while enjoying classic drinks, appetizers, and/or dessert, all the while feasting on the fascinating story of the hotel and its royal couple, Potter and Bertha Palmer.  We focus on the world-famous Empire Room nightclub that hosted the biggest names in entertainment from the 1930s-1970s.  For more details and information. Or…book this tour now.
