Self-Guided Tours

See More of Chicago — On Your Own!

Discover Chicago's History and Culture at Your Own Pace

L Stop Tours offers unique walking and train tours that allow guests to experience the history and culture of vibrant neighborhoods throughout Chicago. Professional tour guides escort guests through the Loop and various neighborhoods, examining the sights and sounds of the city that are in close proximity to L stations.

Sometimes, however, it’s easier and more convenient for guests to do the exploring on their own — at their own pace, their schedule, using their own transportation or choosing where to go or what sights to visit.

We understand.  That’s why we’ve put together several self-guided tours of Chicago neighborhoods — to enable our guests to explore more of Chicago by doing some of the touring on their own. For a more in-depth look at some of Chicago’s most popular neighborhoods, visit our Chicago neighborhood guide.

We’re happy to help out.  Check out our self-guided tours below.
