Benjamin A.

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Welcome to Chicago! I love this city, I love finding out new stories about it, and I love sharing those stories with visitors from all around the world.

I'll give you the stories behind Chicago's fantastic architecture, the history of changing neighborhoods, and the political power plays of past and present that shape the city. Want to know about the ancient reef that stood here 450 million years ago, and the stone it turned into that now graces some of our finest buildings? The early explorer in this region who survived two mutinies but not a third? Or how about the best dive bar within walking distance of Wrigley Field? I can help you with all of the above.

In addition to my listed tours I'm able to put together a custom itinerary tailored to what you want to get out of Chicago. I'm happy to give tours to small groups of all kinds and have several kid friendly stops if they're called for.

Credentials

Chicago Tour Guide Professionals Association (CTPA) Certified Guide. Five years of experience giving tours on architecture, crime history, geology, graveyards, sports history, nightlife, you name it.
