Highlights
  • Guided Chicago city tour includes areas that many other tours skip
  • Travel with a small group, which ensures personalized attention
  • Air-conditioned minibus can travel where larger coaches can't navigate
  • Upgrade to include a popular Chicago River architecture boat cruise
What to Expect
Begin your Chicago sightseeing adventure with convenient pickup from most downtown Chicago hotels, where you board a climate-controlled minibus with your group of 12 or fewer. The small group ensures personalized attention from your guide. Journey through downtown, known as the Loop, and listen as your guide details its historical and architectural heritage. Head to some north-side neighborhoods that other tours miss, such as Lincoln Park and Gold Coast, to see how locals live. Check out the Museum Campus and Millennium Park, and get epic photo ops of the Chicago skyline. Upgrade to include the popular architecture boat cruise on the Chicago River, which often books up. The onboard commentary sheds light on the city's architecture and the river’s place in history. If not taking the boat tour, you are returned to your hotel. Otherwise, you are transported to the boat departure point and are responsible for your return transport.
