Bobby’s Bike Hike
806 N. Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL
Received this rave review: “A must-do for everyone, whether tourist or native! Our guide was very informative and personable- he made me feel very comfortable on the bike even though I hadn’t ridden in years. Our whole group had a blast- this tour was definitely the highlight of my trip. I can’t wait to get back and try the night tour. The ride was very comfortable and enjoyable for all experience levels. Don’t leave Chicago without doing this tour!” One of the “Top 5 things to do in Chicago” according to MSN and CitySearch.com
Chicago Architecture Foundation Tours
Thanks to their trained volunteer docents, our tours are the real deal–narrated, but not scripted, led by Chicago enthusiasts, not by just-another-day-at-the-office guides. Reservations are strongly recommended for boat and bus tours on busy weekends. For walking and bike tours, arrive at the specified meeting place, at or just before, the stated time and look for a docent with a CAF tag or pin. Groups of ten or more cannot join public walking tours without prior approval from the Tour Department. No reservations necessary for walking tours. All tours operate rain or shine. Any two different standard walking tours may be purchased for a discount. (Two tours for $24; seniors and students $20 with valid ID).”
