Holiday Tour of Drinks, Daleys and Dead Guys for UChicago Alumni

On this exclusive holiday walking tour for UChicago Alumni, we stay mostly indoors. You'll see classic holiday sights and hear off-the-beaten path stories of Christmas' past over a couple drinks.

Join fellow UChicago Alumni for a Holiday Tour of Drinks, Daleys and Dead Guys on December 7th. On this exclusive private tour tour, we’ll see some classic Chicago holiday traditions and hear off-the-beaten path stories that you expect from Chicago Detours.Instead of whizzing by Christmas lights from a bus, we’ll walk (in mostly-heated indoor spaces) to fully enjoy the spirit of the holidays in downtown Chicago. We’ll venture into a few cozy locales and talk history over couple drinks. Non-drinkers are more than welcome, too, as this is more than a drinking tour.

NOTE: The 1:15pm tour on December 7th is SOLD OUT. We have added additional tours for the Alumni at on November 30th and December 6th. Hope you’ll join us!
