Who's that chica ?

After reporter Leentje De Leeuw interviewed a man in Chicago who was originally from her Belgian hometown of Sint-Amands, the brief encounter lingered in both their minds. They decided to stay in touch and soon fell in love.

Not only had Leentje fallen in love with the man, she was also smitten with the city. In September 2014, after many transatlantic flights, Leentje moved to the Windy City. 

In 2015 she decided to combine her passion for the city with her experience in travel and media, and thus launched her off the beaten path walks and biking tours. As soon as Leentje became a member of the Chicago Tour Guide Professionals Association, Chica-GO was born!
