I've always been fascinated by Chicago's extensive public train lines - the "El". And I want to share my passion with you!

Let's explore Chicago's trains - elevated, underground, discontinued...Chicago's trains are the truest means of seeing the city and its neighborhoods.

During this 1.5 - 2 hour we'll take the trains, stop in the neighborhoods to walk around, and learn about the history and expansion of Chicago's train lines. We will meet in downtown Chicago and choose an itinerary from there. This trip is highly customizable and can meet and end in different locations.

Price does not include the cost of a Chicago Transit Authority Day Pass, which costs $10 new or $5 to load onto an existing Ventra card.

I would describe this tour as "urban", "active", and "informal". So make sure you come ready to walk and see the real Chicago, not a sanitized tour-bus version!

I am a lifelong Chicagoan and active citizen of this amazing city. Every day I like to explore the city through walking its heights and depths, eating at new restaurants and drinking at new bars, and learning through books and interviews and research. Full profile Leave a Review
