Explore the Sights and Sounds of the City

Depending on the number of participants, we will offer one-on-one guidance and/or a fixed itinerary with several options to choose from. Our guides are volunteers from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and not professional tour guides. The guides will be able to help participants make transportation arrangements to different locations. No additional fee is required to participate in this parallel conference, but all participants are expected to be responsible for their own food, shopping, transportation, and entry expenses.
