The mission of every Walk Chicago Tour is linked to the commitment of our owner, Terry Sullivan, a born and bred Chicagoan who wants every visitor to love Chicago as much as he does. The intention of every walk is to enable visitors to not only see Chicago in all its grandness but to feel its energy and to know its heart. This is the sincerity of effort that separates us from the others.
Every tour is led by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who is skilled at unraveling the many layers of Chicago's culture and history. Guides are chosen for their engaging styles and their ability to share their passion for Chicago.
All our tours are intended for curious, inquisitive, budget-minded visitors. No visit to our city should be a blur on a bus nor an uncomfortable mix in a large group.
And, no visitor to Chicago should be excluded. We openly solicit the disabled and physically impaired and work to meet their individual needs.
Let Walk Chicago Tours wrap America's most American city into a story package for you to take home. Give us a chance to help you build your memories at your own pace. Come walk with us and leave our home convinced that you have come to know the real Chicago.

We consider ourselves Chicago's premiere educational field trip tour service (see tripadvisor.com for reviews by teachers). We have served scores of grade schools, high schools and colleges. Most of our guides are former educators (see guides page on our website) who know how to engage students and how to work with teachers to meet the intended goals for their student groups. We are open to planning with instructors to customize any of our tours to meet the objectives of their classrooms. All school groups receive special discounts. We do not charge for certified faculty members, paraprofessionals or designated school personnel serving as chaperones.
