Chicago, IL, March 24, 2019 - When Hillary Marzec started Inside Chicago Walking Tours in April 2014, it was a passion project.  She had set out to be a career educator and found herself with a summer job as an architecture guide for a Chicago boat tour company until she could get a “real job.”

 “But then I liked it so much I totally geeked out on it!” says Marzec, a Chicagoan with a contagious love for history, learning, and teaching.  In just a few years, Hillary and her father, Jim Marzec, have built a walking tour company grounded in unique perspectives and fascinating stories, not scripted gimmicks and stale facts, that takes its lucky patrons on engaging journeys through Chicago’s rich architecture — its exterior AND interior.

Marzec’s interest in history, architecture, and Chicago itself gives her tours the kind of spark that is not often seen in other tours offered in the area.  You just have to take a look at her TripAdvisor page to see how she can touch the imaginations of her tour guests! CLICK HERE TO READ
