Chicago's Many Neighborhoods

Let me show you around my town's rich tapestry that is its neighborhood quilt. Whether you're contemplating moving here or just curious about all the places you've seen on TV and in the movies, we can check it out! From historic neighborhoods like Bronzeville and Bridgeport to the trendy hot areas like Wikcer Park and the South Loop, it's all here and I'm happy to share it with you.

Available as an all-day tour.


We'll design an itinerary/route as per your interests, or you can leave it all up to me. From Chinatown to Little Italy to Bronzevill and beyond!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: The Chicago Loop, but I'm sure we can work out whatever.

End location: Wherever you need to be...within reason.

Duration: 2 hours

Chicago traffic can be maddening, but we'll roll along!


We can take my car - a four-seater - or I can meet you in your vehicle. If you're game, we can do public transportation and/or walk a bit.

What’s Included

I cover all things with regard to transportation with the exception of transit fares. If you need to hydrate or refuel, that's up to you.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 USD - Snacks, beverages, and/or souvenirs.

What’s Extra

Anything you wish to purchase beyond my costs.


Though my focus is primarily with small 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Clarence was so easy to book. He picked us up right on time, his car was clean and comfy and he was full of information about Chicago. His enthusiasm about HIS city was infectious. My husband and I have been to Chicago many times but now we feel like we have a much better understanding of the city's history as well as today's neighborhoods. Clarence is smart, funny and a delight to spend a few hours with learning about Chicago. I HIGHLY recommend Clarence G!
