You may also want to bring some water or coffee to stay hydrated. Alcohol, smoking, vaping or other products that detract from other patrons enjoyment are not allowed.

We end the tour at Galerie F, where there are numerous bars and restaurants nearby. There are also numerous cafes and restaurants along the route, in case you need to make a stop on your own.
Who is the tour meant for?
If you enjoy art, murals, street art or appreciate getting to know a city and the neighborhoods within it, this is the tour for you.
Do the murals or the route ever change?
Definitely. This is a living gallery. A mural may be on the tour one day and may be gone the next day. We do not control the artists and we do not control the city departments. We are simply observers and educators trying to share our passion for Chicago’s street art scene with those that are interested.

We want to make sure everyone enjoys the tour, but for whatever reason you do not just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll absolutely make it right. Just contact us if you need anything or we can make your experience more enjoyable.
