I love sharing my favorite City and meeting visitors. Finding out why you are visiting, seeing all that is unique about Chicago through your eyes makes this a great experience for me, too! I especially enjoy tailoring tours to your interests. Whether on foot, using public transportation, driving in my vehicle (van available for up to 6) or on your bus/vehicle, I will make sure you fall in love with this great city.
I have lived in or near Chicago for most of my life. My perspective is enhanced by my degree in Urban Planning, time spent living in other cities and my passion for travel.
I have experienced Chicago while single, as part of a couple, with my family of five and now as a couple again as we moved back into the City as empty nesters. I thoroughly enjoy exploring the many facets of Chicago, am comfortable navigating the city and enjoy showing it off. I take great pleasure in sharing any and all information at my finger tips to assure everyone maximizes all Chicago has to offer during their entire stay. You will get a copy of Nancy's Notes to enhance your time here. And I will take your pictures so your entire group is in the picture.
If you are seeking someone who is dependable, fun, an excellent communicator and is ready to tailor your tour of Chicago to your needs and appetites - you have found her here.
A Recent Review of this guide
The tour with the local guides - our group was pretty big - that's why we had 2 tour guides - Nancy and Lyn - was the best way to get to know Chicago. We got a lot of information, presented in a way, we would never forget - and had the opportunity to put questions. I can only recommend this tour. Christine (Germany)
