This is THE ORIGINAL boat + walking tour in Chicago — don't accept imitations! :) A unique, fun way to experience Chicago in the best ways possible: by boat on the Chicago River and on foot through one of Chicago’s many history-packed neighborhoods. First, you’ll jump on a boat with your guide, and you’ll enjoy breathtaking views along the Chicago River. After this, you’ll go beyond what most tourists experience with a typical boat tour: you’ll LEAVE the boat with your guide to continue the rest of your tour on foot in one of Chicago’s most interesting areas, River North. Layered with a fascinating history of early settlers, saints, immigrants, and workers, this area is nowadays a very posh area, filled with great restaurants, hotels, nightlife, shops, and high-rise condo buildings. You'll explore both the well-known and lesser-known parts of this exciting neighborhood, learning about Chicago architecture and history along the way, and about the origins of some of Chicago’s best known foods and restaurants like deep-dish pizza and Italian Beef. As with all of our tours, you’ll also get to experience a stunning architectural interior space — a beautiful old church where Al Capone's rival used to sing and pray! NOTE: This is NOT a typical tour about Al Capone, "ghost" stories, and "haunted bullet holes." If you want those myth-filled tours, don't take this one!

Ticket fee for boat trip
We are three guides (Hillary, Adam, & Ian) that make up a tiny, woman-owned business, Inside Chicago Walking Tours. Hillary started this business in 2014 because she knew there is nothing better than walking up to and *into* buildings to see their art & architecture up close. In five years of business, this tiny company beat out all competition in Chicago to become #1 on TripAdvisor. Our tours are the opposite of the big-box, corporate, scripted tours. We specialize in unique, engaging, eye-opening experiences of downtown Chicago's architecture, history, and even simply beautiful (and often secret!) views. Besides teaching and guiding, we love helping people find stuff in the city to do on their own as well: live music, food, events, etc. We can't wait to show you around!

Please leave yourself enough time to find your guide! Your guide will be waiting for you in the plaza that is SOUTH of the Langham Hotel (you'll see chairs and a sculpture of men holding umbrellas). NOTE: This is not a typical "gangsters" tour! This is "Al Capone light," and about REAL stories.
