In case you haven’t heard, Chicago has a running reputation as “Best Big City in the US”! Wouldn’t you want to incorporate time into your travel itinerary to see for yourself why it continues to top the lists? Booking a Tour Through A Lens will ensure you are experiencing the city like a local…and you may accidentally fall in love with it yourself (as clients express repeatedly!).

Tour Through A Lens is a photography tour company providing private, custom urban experiences based in Chicago, Illinois. This woman-owned and operated small business has been a photography enthusiast’s go-to choice in Chicago for over 10 years building a 5-star reputation on search and travel sites. Expert guide and urban photographer, Teresa Peek, gives every client her personal attention and fuels people’s passion for photography and “her city”.


1) INDIVIDUALS: If you’re a discerning hobbyist or professional photographer seeking an intense urban PHOTO TOUR with a local guide, book a custom 3-, 5- or 9-hour tour for your very own personal photography experience. During the booking process, you’ll be asked questions to determine your goals, interests and equipment. *** Any type of camera (even smartphone) is welcome. Clients benefit most by having basic knowledge of their camera settings so, together, we can focus on exploring the city and creating your own travel story.

2) CORPORATE / SPECIAL GROUPS: Give your clients, your team, your reunion guests, your conference attendees a unique, interactive experience while in Chicago. Teresa is a former professional Meeting & Convention Manager and understands the needs of group travelers with limited itineraries. Contact her for a tour customized to your needs. If you also need transportation or other concierge/offsite event services, include these in your request. She’s able to provide 100% customized experiences or themed excursions. Participants only need a smartphone (photography buffs are welcome to bring their cameras, too!).
