Overview
Discover the lavish interiors of some of Chicago’s most spectacular buildings when you book this architecture-themed walking tour. Meet your guide in the Loop, and set off on foot. You’ll venture behind closed doors to see the architectural highlights that aren’t easily visible from street level, from the world’s largest Tiffany stained-glass dome to the art deco flourishes of the Chicago Board of Trade Building. As you go, learn more about the Windy City’s wealth of history.
