Chicago Loop Interior Architecture & Pedway Walking Tour

Interior Architecture Tour

With so many tours of architecture to choose from, how do you know your guide won’t be a docent volunteer tour rambling a bunch of dates, names and minutes? Join us with a true local guide on an authentic Chicago architecture tour!

On the Loop Interior Architecture Walking Tour, for an in-depth, personal approach to a Chicago architecture walking tour downtown, you will step into magnificent lobbies, corridors, and underground Pedway system. The Walking Tour of Loop Interior Architecture takes you on a creative route that weaves through buildings and secret shortcuts. 95% The tour takes place inside, making it great for all kinds of weather in Chicago.

Tour guests share iPads with archival images of maps, historical photos and video clips while the tour guide shares stories about the history of Chicago. The Loop Interior Architecture Walking Tour has received many five-star ratings on Yelp as one of Chicago’s top-rated tours.

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

Looking outside buildings like architectural boat tours can be a great first step in engaging with architecture in Chicago. Go inside the buildings for the next level of connection with architecture in Chicago. From new perspectives, you will appreciate Chicago’s architecture. You can really experience architectural space from the interiors rather than from a downtown sidewalk’s more isolated perspective.

This walking tour is much more than just a Pedway walking tour if you’re looking for a Pedway-only tour. We are entering beautiful lobbies and corridors of landmarks in Chicago as well as lesser-known historic sites.

To be honest, it’s like walking through parts of the Pedway through a modern basement. It’s not usually very visually attractive. A portion of this tour takes you to Pedway passages and you get the gift of our Chicago Pedway System color-printed map so you can explore it on your own.

This walking tour of Chicago architecture is also available for nine or more guests as a private group tour.
