What You Can Expect

Viator VIP: Willis Tower Skydeck Early Access, Trolley City Tour and Chicago River Cruise

Viator VIP River Cruise

Head to Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and enjoy exclusive early access to this interactive experience on the 103rd floor, an attraction that brings thousands of visitors a day. With this Viator VIP, you'll arrive before normal operating hours to covet uninterrupted views without the crowd. Please arrive at the Skydeck 15 minutes prior to your selected departure time in order to be allowed up with VIP groups. If you are not 15 minutes early, you will have to wait with the general public.

Learn fun facts from an audio tour and snap photos of Lake Michigan and city sights as you step onto the Ledge — a series of glass-and-steel cubes that protrude 4.3 feet (1.3 meters) from the Skydeck. Hovering 1,353 feet (1,353 meters) above the city, you’ll find yourself standing outside the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere.

After an hour here, take a 2-hour trolley tour of downtown Chicago with onboard narration about city history, architecture and landmarks. Motor along LaSalle Street in the Loop, and admire structures such as the Rookery Building. See glass-and-steel skyscrapers by Mies Van Der Rohe, the corncob-shaped towers in Marina City, and famous sculptures by Picasso, Calder, Miró and Chagall. 

Make a stop at Millennium Park, cross the drawbridge over the Chicago River and continue along the Magnificent Mile past the John Hancock Center, Tribune Tower, Wrigley Building, Grant Park, Soldier Field and the Field Museum of Natural History, before a stop at Adler Planetarium for awe-inspiring views of the Chicago skyline on the shores of Lake Michigan.

On arrival at Navy Pier, use your free time to grab lunch (own expense) before boarding the boat for a 1-hour Chicago River cruise. Learn from an architecture expert about notable landmarks while you drift past the IBM Building, Aon Center and Willis Tower — now viewed from the water. 
Finish your 5.5- to 6-hour VIP tour of Chicago back at Navy Pier, with plenty of time left in your day to explore on your own. 

Viator VIPs feature travel experiences not typically available to the general public — from behind- the-scenes access to private viewings and VIP service — at many of the world’s top attractions, often with no lines and no crowds. Viator VIP tours are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.
