Meet Mimi Fron
As a native Chicagoan, certified tour guide & blogger, I have explored all that Chicago has to offer—art, architecture, history, food, music, 77 unique neighborhoods and I am thrilled to share my discoveries with you.

Many of my clients ask how or why I became a tour guide. Here’s my story. Professionally, I am a recovering graphic designer/art director. As a creative person, I was naturally drawn to the art & architecture abundant in Chicago.

I was accepted into the highly regarded docent training with the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) while I was an Art Director. In exchange for the wealth of information & education I gleaned from local experts, I volunteered to give walking tours. It was an enjoyable & educational distraction from a stressful job and helped me get over my fear of speaking in front of crowds.

After volunteering for five years as a docent, I realized my interest in tourism and became a part-time freelance tour guide. Over the last ten years, I have worked for many different tour companies and have lead groups on a variety of routes. I am delighted that I can now add, owner of a tour guide business to the mix.

One of the best things about being a tour guide is meeting & connecting with truly incredible people who share my love of learning from all over the world!
