Explore Chicago from an insider's perspective with architectural interiors and some of the underground passages of the Pedway.

Join fellow University of Chicago alumni on this special winter tour that stays mostly indoors. Chicago Detours staff and UChicago alumni tour guides will lead the walking tour. Special for this tour, we are offering 20% off the regular tour price of $26 and limiting the group to 16 guests. Tour guests share iPads with archival images of maps, historic photos and documentary video clips while the tour guide shares stories of Chicago history.

On the Loop Interior Architecture Walking Tour, you’ll step inside magnificent lobbies, corridors, and the underground Pedway system for an in-depth, personal approach to a downtown Chicago walking tour. The Loop Interior Architecture Walking Tour takes you on a creative route that weaves through buildings and secret short-cuts. 95% of the tour takes place inside, making it great for any kind of our Chicago weather.

With Chicago Detours, our fun and passionate tour guides are highly trained professionals with degrees in architecture, design, art history and history. They know how to connect with a group, spark imaginations, and communicate new concepts in relating to architecture.

Looking at the outside of buildings, such as with architectural boat tours, can be a great first step in engaging with Chicago architecture. For the next level of connection with Chicago architecture, go inside of the buildings. You will appreciate Chicago architecture from new perspectives. Instead of the more isolated perspective of a downtown sidewalk you can truly experience architectural space from the interiors.

If you are looking for a Pedway-only tour, this walking tour is much more than just a Pedway walking tour. We venture into beautiful lobbies and corridors of both Chicago landmarks and lesser-known historic sites. And you get to meet the ever interesting community of UChicago alumni!
