This was the third time we used Dan for a private tour. My 8 girlfriends were in town and Dan was very accommodating, structuring the itinerary around what interests we all had. The tour was fun, engaging and set at a nice leisurely pace to see lots of things. Many thanks to Dan, who we continue to recommend!

I recently took the Chicago History Indoor Walking Tour and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our guide, Dan, was engaging, knowledgeable and intent on us all having a great time. It was a 2 1/2 hour tour but don't let that scare you - time went by fast and Dan leaves you wanting more. Being a history... More

I'll be honest and say that we had a Groupon, which reduced the cost, but even at the non-Groupon rate the tour guy (Dan) gave a great Chicago overview, taking us down into parts of the under-street Pedway and on street level to see some of the architecture of the Nations's Second City. Good pace and lots of interesting local... More

Fascinating tour of an area I knew little to nothing about, but so glad I know now. Our second time on tour with Dan O'Connell, and surely not the last. We are booked again for the Hoiiday Lights Tour. The Pullman Neighborhood is incredibly interesting and Dan makes it more so with all his little anecdotes and amazing stories. His... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
