My husband and I, although Chicago natives, took the two hour architecture tour thinking we'd learn something new...and we did! It was a two-hour beautiful walk around Michigan Avenue, through Millennium Park and over to the River. We heard interesting historical, as well as architectural, facts about the buildings from a wonderful tour guide named Victoria, who knew her stuff and presented it well. We'll be looking into other Savvy tours!

We attended the Underworld Tour of Chicago, hosted by Liz, and although our hopes were quickly set high of a sweet excursion when she gave the intro to her "Layer Cake Chicago" tour, we were quickly let down to find out there would be no cake. There were however many great sweet and tasty nougets of information, history, and architecture throughout the tour.
Liz was fun to interact with, very upbeat and many stories about the areas we were seeing around the good and bad of Chicago's underworld (including the couple that got engaged right next to our group on the Riverwalk as Liz was giving the tragic story of the Eastland disaster.

Overall this was a great, informative, and fun tour that we would highly recommend to learn a bit more about the city we live in.

George was able to structure a full day for 3 to include walking tour, home/ studio , Unity Temple, quick stop for lunch, tour of Robie House and still get us back downtown by our 4 o'clock deadline! His narrative was comprehensive and interesting; he had all tickets so no waiting-- his hotel pickup and delivery were prompt and pleasant. Would definitely engage again and recommend to others traveling to Chicago, particularly FLW fans!! Thanks, George for an outstanding, professional tour day.

Chose the walking tour instead of one of the boat tours and couldn't have been happier. The two hour walk covered a good number of buildings and really very quickly captured the changes that have occurred to the skyline. Loved it.

I really liked this tour with George because he was able to shed light on historical facts that gave a glimpse into the man Frank Lloyd Wright and not just the architect. Very well run tour and definitely worth the price and the time. A highlight of my Chicago experience.
