Interesting and unique

A fascinating look at both street art and graffiti in general and then an local Chicago art and artists. The tour takes you through areas not often seen by tourists and provides opportunities for great eating and shopping opportunities before and after. The start of the tour is close to the Damen Blue line station. Highly, highly recommended!!!

So many things to see and Brian gave a very thorough tour. Before this I had no idea there even was a culture of street art and I learned a lot. I took many more pictures than the ones I uploaded here.

Beautiful and Fun
, Oct 2020
It was a total of 2 hours but the time flew by. The art was beautiful and our guide (Milo) was really enthusiastic, interactive and knowledgeable. Considering going back with others. Would definitely recommend this to tourists and even Chicagoans! It's a beautiful side of Chicago you don't get to see if you're just downtown.

The tour was so interesting. Our guide, Milo, was super helpful. We got to see a different side of Chicago which was cool. And we got to stop at a fantastic donut shop and try one!
