Joyce has a wealth of knowledge and conducts a very interesting tour! I found Chinatown interesting, but probably not one of my most favorite places in the city. The park was beautiful.

This is a wonderful tour! You get to learn about the history of this fascinating community and it's people while seeing a little bit of how they live today. There are plenty of restuarants, nice shops, and a great bakery! The park is wonderful and...continued

Description

Chicago’s Chinatown is located in the Armour Square community – also the home of the White Sox! The Chinese population moved to this area in the early 1900s. In the 1980s the Chinatown area was increased with the purchase of the land that now includes a two-level mall, townhouses and condominiums. The Chinatown community continues to grow and thrive. The area has a wide variety of restaurants, gift shops, grocery stores, Chinese medicine stores and cultural spots.

What you’ll see:

Chinatown Square and the 12 Bronze Chinese Zodiac Statues

The Chinatown Gate

Pui Tak Center Building

The Nine Dragon Wall

Ping Tom Memorial Park

Chinatown Mural

Chinese American Veteran’s Memorial

St. Therese Church

Please note:

The tour covers approximately 2 miles of walking at a leisurely pace over the course of 2-2.5 hours, and ends in Chinatown Square.

There may be opportunities to purchase snacks along the way, which are not included in the price of the tour.

Please dress appropriately for the weather.

Please note that tour guide gratuity is not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
