Co budeš dělat

So much more than a typical "graveyard tour," this tour takes you on a path to discover some of the major architects and characters of Chicago’s rich history through what they did in life, and THEN we take you to visit and pay your respects to these great people at their graves. This is not just an ordinary "graveyard tour" with silly stories about hauntings and urban myths: this tour celebrates what real people did with their lives, and takes you to see their often beautiful graves in the peaceful oasis that is Graceland Cemetery. We begin our exploration downtown with a handful of the most beautiful, important buildings in Chicago's architectural history, designed and built by major architects like Jenney, Burnham, Root, and Sullivan. We will pop into buildings to see their stunning interiors, and talk about the evolution of skyscrapers here in Chicago from the 19th century through the 20th. You'll get to experience gorgeous spaces, and take tons of photos! After our downtown portion, we will jump on the L (Chicago's famous elevated train) for a 20-minute ride up to Graceland Cemetery, where many famous Chicagoans are buried. One architect was so important, he even got his own island in the middle! We will learn about these great architects by walking through their masterpieces, and then visiting their final resting places. It's our unique way to teach about history!

Hillary & Adam

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!
