Tour de Chicago Services

Tour de Chicago offers two unique packages to those new to Chicago:
— Community Package: With a Tour de Chicago consultant, tour up to
five communities within the Chicagoland area to determine what
community best suits the resident’s life-style and needs. This
service enables the resident an informative approach to determine
where to purchase or rent property.

— Neighborhood Package: With a Tour de Chicago consultant, take a
round-trip tour utilizing the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA)
system to better understand public transportation. The
Neighborhood Package tour continues with a driving and walking
tour of the resident’s neighborhood, highlighting areas of
interest, including city services, entertainment, shopping, and more.

“The timing of the official launch of Tour de Chicago is to better facilitate those moving to the Chicago area during one of the peak moving seasons,” said Julie Sondgerath, Founder and CEO of Tour de Chicago. “Chicago is such a beautiful community. When new residents are given the opportunity to understand the city with resources that provide the necessary knowledge and excitement of the city, the experience is more fulfilling. Our consultants provide a personal, hands-on tour with the resident to eliminate the overwhelming feeling associated with moving to a larger metropolitan area. Information is key to better understanding the city, but a personal tour will get the new resident one step closer to feeling like this is Sweet Home Chicago.”
