That ingrained a strong wanderlust in me that has never gone away. I've globe-trotted all around and met countless amazing people during my travels. Allow me to help make your memories as awesome as mine have been.
I've lived in Chicago for 28 years, so it's safe to say that I am a Chicago native, and I know a thing or two about this city I call home. My interests are many, as are my jobs. I teach Polish folk dancing, cater pierogi, work at a brewery, participate in a yearly lowrider show and of course, work as a tour guide. . . the list goes on. I also love music, dance and enjoy a great meal (who doesn't). That being said, I can customize a tour that'll satisfy and entertain any type of individual.
Let's go to breweries, dance to swing music, visit unique architectural sites, learn a little about Chicago history, and try out some amazing local restaurants as well as local fast food joints (Chicago-style hot dog or deep dish pizza, anyone?). Now, let's have some fun and explore!
A Recent Review of this guide
Johanna treated us to a swing through downtown and Old Town. We were able to go inside a number of landmarks including the Chicago Public Library. Despite the challenges of Chicago traffic she got us to so many places we would never have had the time or info to get to ourselves. She was flexible, polite and friendly and we were very comfortable in her car. We felt the tour was well worth the money and exceeded our expectations. A great intro that informed the rest of our stay in town. We'd do it again!
I have worked as a private guide in Chicago for two years.
Although I mostly work with smaller groups, I can accommodate larger groups. If you are interested in booking for a larger group, I can meet you and guide you in your vehicle.
