American Architecture Walking Tours – Introduction
e-architect’s architecture walking tours tend to focus on key contemporary American buildings, within the historic context. However our guides can usually incorporate specific architectural interests such as the major office buildings in Chicago or the most significant skyscrapers in New York.
e-architect operate both architecture walking tours and architectural bus tours in America. Our American tour guides have an architectural background and quite a few of them are also architects. Each city offered in America has a standard tour framework but please contact us if you have specific interests.
