About your host

I have lived in Chicago for 15 years and showing off what makes our "City in the Garden" special is my passion and profession. I love finding creative ways to explore the city and this experience is a perfect example.

What we’ll do

This is my dream half day in Chicago: Spend some time boating on the Chicago River, bike along Lake Michigan, and check out the Art Institute. I am not so much a tour guide as I am your friend in Chicago showing off the best parts of the city in a way only a local would do. Are you ready? Let's do this! We begin with a Chicago Water Taxi ferry boat ride to see downtown's riverfront…

What else you should know

I have chosen a route that includes side streets and bike paths but guests should feel comfortable biking in the city. Our experience may also include 1 mile of walking with some stairs.
