What to Expect
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.

This was very interesting. We had a life-long Chicagoan in our party and even he was surprised how much he learned about buildings he had walked by a hundred times. Our guide, Maria, was terrific.
