Come with me and explore the highlights of the Chicago’s famous Loop, the best of the best, my personal highlights. I’ll show you the places I love the most and the places that make me laugh and cry. (I’ll try not to cry too much on the tour though, you know, I’m professional!)
We’ll see the best historic and modern skyscrapers. We’ll talk intelligently (yes we will) about our gorgeous public art: Chagall, Picasso, Miro, oh my! I’ll sing you the song about Mrs. O’Leary, her cow and the Chicago fire and tell you what really went down that fateful day in 1871. The skyscraper church, City Hall and the Picasso all sit on a big beautiful plaza together, we’ll stand in the middle of it and look up and talk about the men and women who built this magnificent city.We’ll marvel at Tiffany domes and look for ghosts in haunted “death alley.” The tour will end at the Cultural Center – my favorite building in the city. I leave it for last because I lose people in there. They love the building so much it’s hard to get them to leave!
If you want a fun walking tour that covers all the bases – check out my Loop Tour. Fall in love with the city just like I have. I dare you!

“Margaret KNOWS the city, inside and out (and underground!). I’ve lived in Chicago for over 25 years and I have never heard of the interesting facts and places that Margaret showed us. She’s funny too!” -Raed from Chicago
