After meeting the group at the Palmer House Hilton hotel, get comfortable aboard your coach for a grand tour of the Windy City, culminating in a visit to 360 Chicago (John Hancock Observatory).
Listen to onboard commentary as you motor through the South Side via Grant Park, where your guide points out the open-air stadium of Soldier Field and the sky dome of Adler Planetarium. Pass by Shedd Aquarium, view the Field Museum of Natural History, travel through the residential area of South Commons and get a glimpse of President Obama's old neighborhood.
Heading to Chicago’s North Side, view the Picasso sculpture in the open-air courtyard of the Richard J Daley Center. Driving across the Chicago River, you’ll see Wrigley Field and the Wrigley Building, a skyscraper on the Magnificent Mile near the massive shopping complex at Water Tower Place.
On arrival at the Hancock Center, disembark your coach to ascend one of the tallest buildings in the US. You hop on a 39-second elevator ride to the 94th floor at 360 Chicago, an open-air observation deck formerly called the John Hancock Observatory. From 1,000 feet (305 meters) above the Magnificent Mile, you can see the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin on a clear day!
After you soak up the postcard views, your 4-hour tour ends with hotel drop-off back to the original departure point.
