Here, in the “City of the Big Shoulders,” America saw its first skyscraper, a daring, innovative, steel-framed “giant” of its time – though only 1/10 the height of the current tallest building in Chicago. And though you can no longer see this revolutionary building, Inside Chicago Walking Tours specializes in getting you as close as possible to that moment in history: not only will you see the exact spot where it once stood – something you’d likely see on other walking tours – but you’ll also see a comparable building designed by the same architect, at the same time, of the same height and same style – something you’d surely miss on other walking tours. And it’s in this engaging, contextualized approach to teaching history that Inside Chicago Walking Tours sets itself apart, making Chicago’s architecture come alive for tourists and Chicagoans alike: we know how to set the right context for learning about the past through the lens of the present; we know how to make the stories behind the walls come alive. Inside Chicago Walking Tours takes you on a well-walked path of Chicago’s historical architecture, but in its unique, entertaining, and memorable way. We promise you’ll be looking at architecture – and history – in a whole new light! ON THIS TOUR, YOU WILL SEE: --120-year-old walls that tell the fascinating story of modern architecture’s evolution; --"Queen's Landing," and the hotel where Queen Elizabeth once stayed; --Iron hidden behind gleaming marble -- two styles and eras in one; --Amazing Tiffany stained glass mosaics, saved from destruction; --Much, much more! **Within 24 hours of requesting this experience, you will receive a unique code for each ticket purchased and will need to officially register with an external ticketing office.
