Welcome back! Choose from more than 50 reinstated walking tours, book a CAFC River Cruise and visit the Center Thursday through Monday.

In addition to our public walking tours reinstated for small groups, the CAC offers two more options to experience our acclaimed walking tours during Phase III of Protecting Chicago.

Private and custom tours are intended for parties of up to six people. While these options may be ideal for families and groups that have isolated together, that is not a requirement. The CAC’s COVID-19 safety policies for walking tours apply to all private and custom tours as well, including the wearing of face coverings by all attendees.

Book your private or custom walking tour by contacting our Group Sales department today! Email

Private and custom tours are contingent upon docent availability. Please contact us at least seven days prior to your preferred tour date.


Experienced and knowledgeable CAC docents are available to lead private tours for up to six family members or friends along any of our existing routes. Schedule according to the availability of those in your group! There is a flat fee of $180 for up to six people.

CAC Members save 25%! Members can book a My Social Circle private tour for just $135.

Ask us about including CAC face coverings, gift bags and souvenir photos with your private tour reservation!


Let the CAC design and lead a bespoke tour for up to six attendees based on your group’s interests! The Architecture Conversations custom tour option we’ve offered for many years may be more ideal now than ever while gathering sizes are limited.

Architecture Conversations and other specially customized tours start with a minimum two-hour reservation at $375, with each additional hour $125.
