Amanda Scotese

Amanda Scotese started the tour company Chicago Detours, so she can have a legitimate excuse for wandering Chicago and geeking out on architecture. She dug in to anything Chicago, especially architecture and urban geography, through the Masters of Arts Program in the Humanities at the University of Chicago. Her travel writing has appeared in Rick Steves’ Italy travel guidebooks, Trazzler, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and the Chicago Detours blog.
