Cette visite complète d'une demi-journée de Chicago est la présentation parfaite de la « Ville des vents ». Découvrez les plus beaux sites de Chicago, des quartiers nord à la rive sud, et profitez du panorama offert le long de la route touristique de l'extérieur de la ville. Visitez les magnifiques parcs de Washington Park et Grant Park, et faites un arrêt de 20 minutes au fascinant Lincoln Park Conservatory. Passez par l'Adler Planetarium pour une séance photo et découvrez l'impressionnant bâtiment Wrigley, et bien plus encore. Vous aurez une magnifique vue d'ensemble de ce que Chicago a à vous offrir.
Je conseille de faire le tour complet (Nord et Sud) et absolument en début de séjour, car il donne un aperçu très complet de la ville. Cela devrait être la première activité à faire dès l'arrivée à Chicago, car cela permet ensuite de plus facilement se repérer et de mieux organiser la suite du séjour.
Le chauffeur, qui s'improvise aussi guide, fait ce qu'il peut, mais les commentaires ne sont ni très informatifs ni très intéressants.
I could not understand the commentary. The volume was ok, but the words were not distinct. All the passengers were complaining. The bus was not comfortable. The seats were hard and the window coverings were plastic - either open or closed. Hot when closed or extremely windy when open.
This tour was amazing , and I recommend it for the very first day that you're vising Chicago. It will give you an idea of what you would like to spend time seeing and what could be saved for another time .
I was really excited to learn about the city in this four hour long tour, two hours touring the North side, two hours touring the South side. Unfortunately it wasn't the greatest. The driver was also the tour guide. The main issue was the loud noise coming from the engine of the shuttle, which made it VERY difficult to understand the driver the whole 4 hours! Also, the noise of the streets and cars was distracting from what he was saying. I think I probably understood about 30 of what he said, and the information I caught was very interesting. I just wished I could understood him clearly. During the first North side tour, he made a stop at the Lincoln Park Conservancy, which was nice to take pictures. During the second part of the South side tour, he stopped by the aquarium where there was a beautiful view of the city.
The tour had the potential to be a very successful and informative for those who really want to know about the city but unfortunately it was not worth the 48 I spent.
