A tour company for the curious

Founder Amanda Scotese launched Chicago Detours, a tour company for the curious, in July 2010 after spending close to a decade in Italy as a Tour Guide and Guidebook Researcher with Rick Steves’ Europe. She decided to bring her travel expertise back home to Chicago with tour experiences that are fun, educational, and truly make us feel connected with our grand city.

Chicago Detours brings curious people to explore stories and places locals don’t even know through guided tours of Chicago’s architecture, history and culture.
