Enhance your corporate or private event with a fun and informative tour or city orientation.
Whether on a bus, boat, or trolley or at a meeting/gathering event for your business or private group (those relatives in for the wedding? rented a boat for your corporate group?), I am ready to up your game with historic, anecdotal and other details of our terrific city of Chicago. You can relax and interact with your guests while I share information and answer the questions about this terrific city. I will join your tour of the City or provide a City slide show.
The itinerary is flexible. Guide can prep unique locations at your request or provide an overview as follows: Begin in the loop (business district) near the birthplace of the City where the River meets Lake Michigan. We will then trace the history of the city to the south side Hyde Park site of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Proceeding back north along the Lake Front will take us to the Museum campus with its breathtaking view of the city. If time permits, we continue north to the 1200 acre Lincoln Park. Our trip will span much of the 18 mile long Lake Shore Drive along beautiful Lake Michigan and cover detail of the City's history, architecture and beauty.
