So I was out in Chicago for work and my company booked a tour through Chicago's finest. Our tour guide, Daniel, was one fantastic tour guide. Talk about a wealth of knowledge for Chicago history, and his passion and enthusiasm shines through! I highly recommend booking through them, and hopefully if your lucky, you'll get Daniel as your guide too.

Our 3 hour tour was the VERY BEST crime tour I have ever taken... Dan, is a talking encyclopedia about the city's history. A social or business group would be entertained, well informed and leave with a new understanding about Chicago. His newest tour, Sin, Crime and Corruption is filled with facts and history that goes beyond Al Capone" s... More

Must have Dan K O Connell take you on this new and exciting tour of how the Windy City became Capone's Chicago. Most informative, new information you may not have known. Great Tour.

This was a great way to see "under" Chicago on a cold day. We learned many things about the pedway and some of Chicago's beautiful buildings. The walk was at a leisure pace and we also discovered how to get around (south of the Chicago river) without going outside. It is very easy from the Swiss hotel to Macy's (old... More

I have lived in Chicagoland for over 30 years, recently moved to the loop and wanted to get a handle on how the Pedway system worked. Rick, our tour guide, was knowledgeable (included history, architecture and popular culture information), fun (had trivia quizzes with Starbucks gift cards as prizes and made everyone feel great about their answers so you felt...

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
