We begin this Chicago walking tour in front of the iconic Chicago Theater. After introductions, we’ll hop on the Red Line and head south to Chinatown.
Upon arrival, we’ll start our Chicago Chinatown tour at the famous Dragon Wall and stroll down Wentworth Avenue – the heart of Chinatown. We’ll stop at a local bakery (purchases optional) before heading to the Chinese American Museum. From there, we’ll walk through the residential area of the neighborhood until we reach the Chinatown Square Mall.
In the Mall, you can sample authentic cuisine (purchases optional) and browse unique shops. We’ll then make our way to Ping Tom Memorial Park where we’ll board the Chicago Water Taxi and enjoy an architecturally-themed cruise back to the Loop.
