What You Can Expect
Take a narrated coach tour with your expert guide through the South Side and travel through Grant Park, known as the ‘front lawn of the city.’ See Soldier Field, the Adler Planetarium with its massive sky dome.. Pass by the world's largest aquarium, the Shedd Aquarium, see the Field Museum of Natural History, and travel through the South Commons, a new 'close- in' residential community. You'll also get to pass by President Obama's old neighborhood and see where he used to live!
On the North Side, travel by the striking Richard J Daley plaza with its acknowledged masterpiece, the Pablo Picasso sculpture, created exclusively for Chicago. Then, drive over the Chicago River and see the famous Wrigley Building and Wrigley Field. Soon you’ll see Chicago's elegant seven-level shopping complex and the renowned Water Tower Place, alongside one of the tallest buildings in the United States, the 360 Chicago (John Hancock Center).
Here, you’ll get to de-board and enter this impressive building with your guide. Hop into one of the world’s fastest elevators for a 39-second ride to the 94th floor of the 360 Chicago. On a clear day, you can see up to 80 miles away and view four states – Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin! Experience the open-air Skydeck, 1,000 feet above Chicago's Magnificent Mile, and admire the dynamic city below.
The Tour guide was very knowledgeable and the bus driver was excellent at navigating some of the narrow streets of Chicago. Perhaps, a bus similar to the Chicago Trolley bus may be better for those people who want to take photographs. Despite this fact, I feel I have a better understanding of the geography of Chicago due to the excellent tour guide.
Poor. Alot of stress due to lack of location information. We finally figured out where to start this tour within an hour of it starting! River cruise cost additional money due to 3rd party purchase and effects of rain.
This tour was excellent. Our bus driver Pat was very good and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
We saw the North and South side of Chicago and were also able to get off the bus and take pictures and
walk to areas of interest. I highly recommend this tour. It is well worth the money!
The tour was a life time experience
keep it up 100% satisfaction
This tour is a must for anyone visiting Chicago. It takes you on a comprehensive look at both the north and south sides of the city. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and there were a number of stops providing opportunities to see key features up front and personal!
I enjoyed this very much and it was nice to see North Avenue where we had been the day before for the Air Show from the top of the Hancock Building
Good tour! But I strongly recommend to reconfirm the pick-up TWICE, because it may be problems and people can be got out of pick-up list of the operation conpany.
We loved it. We learned a lot about Chicago. Our guide was great and so was our driver. Thanks for a great time .
