Sail Chicago's Lakefront on a Yacht
Our sailing experience begins at Monroe Harbor right in downtown Chicago. Guests will enjoy a captained cruise on our sailing yacht, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37. We will cast off and motor out to Lake Michigan where we will set sail to a favorable course. Bring your favorite food and drinks, listen to music, relax, and take in the views of our city’s iconic buildings from the lakefront. The courageous can try their hand at the helm and rigging the sails-Captain Greg is a volunteer sailing instructor for a local non-profit and enjoys sharing his knowledge. On hot days be sure to bring a bathing suit to swim in the lake to cool off. Please feel free to inquire about custom bookings. We have hosted engagements, bachelorette parties, corporate outings and many more memorable events! Things to note: Other Airbnb guests will potentially join your public booking unless you reserve the entire boat privately. There are six open spots on a first book first serve basis. We only wait 15 minutes at the dock for a late guest out of courtesy for timely guests. We only cancel for lightning and will refund everyone. If you tend to get motion/seasick, or have a hangover, take motion medication 30 minutes prior.

Meet us in our small gallery where you will be taken on a tour of a working glassblowing studio. We make barware and art for hotels in our hotshop. After a quick intro to glassblowing and the techniques used, you will be given one on one instruction while creating your glass paperweight.

The experience will end with a question and answer time in our gallery. **Please note, at this time we are practicing social distancing and require face masks. No blown objects are available at this time. The paperweight is the only option available that allows for social distancing. Please wear cotton clothing and closed toed shoes. Guests must come back 2 days later to pick up their glass piece or arrange to have it shipped (we currently only ship within the United States). **Face Masks, Closed Toed Shoes & Cotton Clothing are required to enter the building**
Lifestyle City Photo Shoot/Tour
Standing in front of a camera can be quite intimidating. With experience both in front of and behind the lens, I will always do my best to help you capture the best natural travel photos in the city of Chicago. Worried about how you'll look? Don't be! I will always show you the photos before moving forward. During this experience I will not only help you receive beautiful photos but I will also try to teach you insight about modeling and photography. This experience will be ideal for individuals who are looking for a city tour but would also love to capture some scenic travel and portrait images. I love to build positive connections with others, so this is great for someone who wants to be more engaged and collaborative with their guide. I will be using a Sony DSLR to capture your candid and lifestyle moments. This includes both portraits and full body shots. If you would like to learn more about the editing process or a photographer's guides, let me know and I am more than happy to share my knowledge. You will select 3 images for edits & receive all unedited photos (usually 250+). Editing does not include body manipulation, but can be requested for an additional charge. If you do not see a time that works for you on the calendar, please send me a message! I do accept larger parties! This will NOT be a private session unless you book it as a private session.
Chicago Architecture & Highlights
We start at the Chicago Theater before heading off into the city. We’ll begin by exploring the Chicago Pedway. This network of tunnels and bridges connects skyscrapers and retail stores, so you’ll see how locals move around the city (especially during those Midwestern winters)! We’ll then make our way past City Hall, where you'll get a chance to enjoy the beauty of the historical architecture while your guide shares about its history. You can’t visit Chicago and not see some incredible public art, so next, we’ll stop at the Picasso Sculpture (yes! A real Picasso!). You’ll hear how this piece came to Chicago and how it was received, as you enjoy an up-close Picasso experience with this unique piece of art. Weather permitting (aka, in the warmer months), we’ll then take a stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk while taking in views of several soaring buildings, such as the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower. Finally, we’ll walk down the world-famous shopping district of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, making our way to the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue. At some point, your guide will serve up a delicious local treat for you to enjoy. We’ll end up in the picturesque Millennium Park, home to the iconic Bean sculpture, where your tour ends. If you would like to book this tour for a private group, please message us directly for more information.
Explore Dazzling Architecture Interiors of the Chicago Loop
Take the architecture tour voted #1 by TripAdvisor users! We will be taking a leisurely 2-hour walk exploring some of the most beautiful and often overlooked buildings in downtown Chicago, both outside and inside, and learning about the most important and interesting parts of Chicago's architectural history. Visitors often don't know where to go, or even where they're allowed. This experience takes them inside places they'd never even consider, to show off more than 100 years of architecture as it developed here in the Windy City -- including stunning stained glass, atrium-like spaces, 19th century skyscrapers, and more! Great tour for photographers and travel buffs! Some things to note: Bring a camera -- this is an AWESOME way to practice your architecture photography! Also, dress for the weather, and if it's raining, bring an umbrella. Also, please note that if you provide a non-US phone number as your day-of contact number, we **CANNOT** call you if you're lost or late!

Explore hidden bars in Chicago
Chicago offers a lot of hidden bars for night owls. We will start the night at my favorite hidden gem in West Loop, we will spend about one hour here then head to the next bar which is an 8 minute walk. Some of the bars have secret entrances so be ready for a fun night. The bars have amazing cocktails, beers, non-alcoholic drinks, good music and a good ambiance. There are plenty of secret bars and unfortunately we cannot explore all of them in one night. However, I will share with you the location of other secret bars which you can visit later. Please be advised that drinks or food are NOT included. This is not prohibition level speakeasy tour, this is a chill bar hopping experience. I was not born in the early 1900s and don’t know anything about prohibition so don’t ask. Have a drink and relax. Please note the experience time says it lasts 3 hours but you are welcomed to stay at the bars as long as you like. If your preferred hour is fully booked, don't worry, bar fits a fair amount of people, send me a message. There are still some locations that may ask for your proof of vaccination to access the bars. Please bring it with you. A photo of your vaccination card is fine.

Old-Fashioned Soap Making Class
Making soap is easy to do once you have made it with an expert. Otherwise, it can be pretty daunting to try to learn on your own. We will discuss the fascinating history of soap making, and then we will get to work. You will weigh the main oils—olive, coconut, and palm—and I’ll be in charge of the dangerous stuff. (The lye.) You can personalize your batch by selecting from a variety of scents and herbs. Your loaf of soap will weigh about 1.5 pounds, and after a few days it will be ready to cut into bars. This is the size of a banana bread loaf, so you can cut as many slices of soap as you want from it, depending on thickness. A safe estimate is that you can get 7 or 8 bars of soap per batch. You will leave here knowing how to make your own soap in the future with recipes and resources, like where to find supplies and how to calculate the lye. This is a fun class to take with a friend, a partner, a group of friends, or a team from work. It is a fun team-building activity. Children are welcome to attend this class as unpaid guests. They can help with your batch! If a child wants to make a separate loaf of soap they will need to pay the regular price. Also, I have added dates and times that I think will appeal to people but I am pretty open to other dates and times. I am fully vaccinated and we can wear masks or be unmasked, according to your preference.
