Walking Tours

Chicago Walking Tours Our premiere Chicago walking tours are the North Loop and Millennium Park Tour, which covers a great portion of Chicago’s downtown area plus Millennium Park, and the Riverwalk and History Tour, which follows the path of the Riverwalk and focuses its attention on many of the great buildings, and the stories and people behind them, that make up the city’s legendary skyline. Both tours are great day or night and serve as introductions to the city and cover the many of the main tourist attractions.

Our Gold Coast Tour also focuses on architecture, but on this tour, you will be introduced to the glamorous residential neighborhood built around Lakeshore Drive or take our Architecture Tour to hear about the buildings of the South Loop and Grant Park.

For something on the lighter side, check out our Movies and Filming in Chicago Tour, or conversely, for something a little darker, try our Chicago Ghost Tour.

There is no charge to take our walking tours, meaning you may pay what you feel the tour was worth after the tour is completed, thus ensuring that your tour guide must strive to give his or her best on every tour. Chicago can be expensive and we feel that every visitor should be able to experience the city in an affordable manner – even free! A name-your-own-price tour is a tour for every budget.

Food Tours

If you are looking for a food tour that leaves your stomach full but your wallet empty, then Free Tours by Foot food tours may not be for you. If you are looking for filling, affordable and fun  way to take a bite of the Windy City, then consider on of our Chicago food tours. From Chinatown to Mexican in Pilsen, our food tours bring you to a local side of the city.

Self Guided Tours

With so much to see in Chicago, there are a lot where we cannot offer guided tours – but still think you should see them! We have a number of self guided tours so you can take in the sites, sounds and tastes of Chicago on your own time. The Windy City also has a Chinatown and Little Italy, both of which include a mid-western take on the cuisines. Check our our Self Guided Food Tours to taste your way through the city.

If any of our walking tours don’t fit into your schedule, we’ve compiled some of the highlights for a self guided walking tour of Navy Pier to one of Wicker Park.

Private Tours

We also offer our guiding services for private groups where we can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go in the city. Whatever your tour guiding needs are; we can hook you up. Email us and we will get back to you with a timely quote.
