Tours Suspended

Due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, all tours in Chicago have been suspended until May 15, 2020. We will continue to monitor and adjust our timeline as needed or required by city, state, and national health officials.
If you are interested in one of our tours for the future, please consider purchasing a Gift Certificate. This is a very difficult time for the travel and tourism industry and we appreciate all of your support for our small, independently-owned business.
May we suggest getting some of your Holiday Shopping done ahead of time!

Chicago Urban Adventures

If you are planning to travel in the coming weeks, you’ll likely have some questions about the impact Coronavirus (officially named COVID-19) may have on your plans.

We are open and all our tours are running! Our staff is healthy and most Chicagoans are going about their daily lives as normal. Thus, if you are still planning to visit us, you’re most welcome and we look forward to hosting you on your Best. Day. Ever.

We want you to know that we are working with our team and the places we visit to ensure your safety. Some measures we are taking:

1. All our expert local guides will have hand sanitizer and/or cleansing wipes for you to use throughout your tour.

2. We remain committed to small groups, which makes us unique among travel companies; most of the health advisories are about large gatherings, which is not how we operate.

3. We usually visit small mom & pop shops, who are also committed to remaining safe and providing a superior experience; we work personally with every vendor for carefully curated engagement.

4. We are actively communicating with all our vendors to ensure everyone is maintaining safety protocols.

5. We have temporarily made some minor adjustments to our itineraries so as not to enter large gathering places like churches or government buildings. But rest assured, we will still be able to see and do a lot in Chicago and you will still have the Best. Day. Ever.

We understand that despite our efforts, you may need to change your travel plans. We want to work with you in the event you must modify your reservation:

1. We will be happy to rebook you to a future date of your choosing; we are rebooking up to a year out, so simply reply back with your preferred date and we will reschedule you without penalty.

2. If you do not know when you will be traveling, we can issue you a gift certificate to be redeemed for a future tour with us; this certificate is fully transferable, meaning you can give it to a friend or family member should you like.

3. We are currently discounting our private group tours by 25% as we know some guests may be more comfortable taking their tour with people that they know; if you would like to rebook to a private experience, we are happy to do this.

4. If you purchased your ticket from a 3rd party (e.g. Get Your Guide, Expedia, etc.), we will work with that reseller to make sure you’re satisfied with the outcome.

We are committed to safety among our guests, whether that’s navigating off-the-beaten-path Chicago or being flexible during times of global crisis. We believe that providing you a memorable tour should be part of a positive and cherished experience in our city.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us via [email protected] or you can call us at 312-973-3877 with any questions you may have.
