Each one of them goes through an extensive training process. Before they even join us, many know the architecture and history of this city inside and out. You’ll love cruising around Chicago with our team of friendly and knowledgeable guides!

Meet Jim C.

Jim is a world traveler (he's been to 86 countries and all 50 states), but Chicago is the place he's called home for 22 years. His love of architecture might have something to do with it: Jim has a degree in Mechanical Engineering, which helps him explain the more technical features of the buildings to guests on Shoreline tours.

"My favorite Chicago landmark is the Wrigley Building. I'm proud to live in a city with a building that beautiful."
