Tour Through A Lens is operating and a perfect choice for you or your client’s post-COVID adventure in Chicago. Entering its 10th Anniversary year, Teresa is excited to receive new and existing clients from domestic and worldwide origins as international travel restarts. This woman-owned and operated small business has been a photography enthusiast’s go-to choice in Chicago for private, custom urban photography adventures and a surprisingly fun, unique experience for people “with just a phone camera”.

Photography is, by nature, both social and individual allowing your post-pandemic adventure to go undeterred. ** Tours will operate per Chicago and Illinois guidelines in effect at the time of the tour beginning with walking apart together and wearing face masks where required, such as public transit and indoors. Each client will be required to bring their own mask to ensure the best fit and comfort. Your tour guide is also fully vaccinated.

PRIVATE, CUSTOM TOURS: If you’re a discerning hobbyist or professional photographer seeking an intense urban PHOTO TOUR with a local guide, book a custom 3- or 5-hour tour built with your goals, interests and photography equipment in mind. This tour is your very own personal photography experience. Along the way, you’ll hear “Chicagoisms”, fun facts, some quirky stories and experience visual examples of the city’s rich architectural history.
*** People who love to explore and capture their world travels in photos benefit most by having basic knowledge of their camera settings so, together, we can focus on exploring the city.

2) PUBLIC GROUP TOURS: Have not yet restarted. Consideration for 2022 if enough interest in themed public tours such as the Alleys of Chicago, offered pre-Covid.

3) CORPORATE GROUP TOURS: If you’re a corporate manager, meeting planner or tour director seeking an activity to get your group of attendees or employees outdoors, something unique and different from the usual options, contact Teresa for a customized corporate group tour. Your attendees will have learn how to interact with the city and tips for their camera or smartphone camera to use anywhere they travel. Custom tours allow TTAL to plan your route to start or end at your needed anchor location whether an office, hotel or restaurant.

You have limited time to see Chicago and want to explore and capture the city in all its awesomeness. Let me be your local and visual guide to Chicago to fuel your creativity and make the most of your visit.
