The CAF River Cruise is a "must" for out-of-towners and Chicagoans alike. You and your guests will see over 50 buildings along the Chicago River and learn how the city grew into one of the world's most important crossroads.

 

CAF docents will open your eyes to the many unique aspects of Chicago with a wide variety of bus and trolley tours covering more ground than you can on foot. Frank Lloyd Wright neighborhoods, Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and skyscrapers galore, bus and trolley tours allow your group to see more in less time.

 

Chicago Architecture Foundation walking tours get you up close to some of the most famous buildings in the world. Experienced CAF docents will lead you through the heart of Chicago in small groups, creating an intimate experience for guests to receive personal attention with time for questions and more in-depth observations.

 

Innovative architecture, advanced engineering and public art make Chicago a world-class city. Chicago Architecture Foundation student tours are designed to deliver exciting and engaging information for students ages 12–18. CAF tours are led by docents who are officially trained to interact with students. Most groups do not exceed a 1:12 docent-to-student ratio.
