Get an inside look at Chicago’s storied architectural history on this guided walking tour through some of the Loop’s iconic interiors. See the Tiffany & Co.-designed mosaic ceiling of Marshall Field and Company Building, the stained-glass dome of the Chicago Cultural Center, the underground Chicago Pedway system, and more architectural highlights. The tour moves at a leisurely pace and covers a half mile (0.8 kilometers) with frequent stops.
Begin your tour by meeting your guide inside the Marquette Building.
On this guided tour you step inside the Marshall Field and Company Building to appreciate the Tiffany & Co.–designed ceiling inside the atrium. Visit the colossal 50-foot-tall (15-meter) outdoor Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza, and explore the subterranean world of the Chicago Pedway system, an extensive network of climate-controlled, underground concourses that connect buildings throughout downtown.
As you stroll the central business district—also known as “The Loop”—learn about some of Chicago’s most famous buildings via iPads showcasing archival images of Chicago with maps, historic photos, and documentary video clips.
Your tour concludes at the Chicago Cultural Center, a Chicago Landmark building, completed in 1897 and originally the city’s first central public library.

Our tour guide, Alex, was a delight! Knowledgeable and articulate, he kept us moving and provided insights that captured our attention fully. Excellent tour with history, architecture, and a great perspective on what we were seeing. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed the tour and found Maria a friendly and knowledgeable host I particularly enjoyed the visits to the skyscraper that is a Methodist church
Thanks so much for joining us, Derek, and for sharing this review! We're glad you had a good time and found your visit memorable. The church in the skyscraper is a true gem and we love sharing it with our guests!
