The walking tours by the Chicago Architecture Center sound like a lot of fun but they list so many different ones! Each one has a little bit different focus. Anyone taken more than one for comparison? Or taken one you really liked? I'm finding it hard to pick just one.

P.S. We will be there the 2nd week of October.

The CAC walking tours I like because of my interests are Louis Sullivan Rediscovered, Tiffany Treasures, Historic Treasures of Chicago's Golden Age, and Must-See Chicago. The first CAC walking tour I went on years ago was a Frank Lloyd Wright walking tour but they don't have it anymore. If Wright is of interest to you, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust located in The Rookery offers Wright architectural tours.

Did you try searching by date? If you do that, there aren't all that many options. The ones that focus on a single building or architect should be easy to decide on, or reject. Of the ones that discuss a broad spectrum of buildings, I would recommend the Historic Skyscrapers tour. It will open your eyes as to the decisions made by architects.
