This tour will take you through one of the most architecturally striking and culturally dynamic cities in the United States. You’ll experience Chicago’s greatest hits: incredible architecture both old and new, delicious local treats, a uniquely Chicago transit ride, stunning river views, and much more!

You’ll hear a host of stories from your local guide as you visit Chicago landmarks like the Chicago Theater (where you might recognize the neon sign from the movie musical Chicago), the Chicago Pedway, and the world-famous Wrigley building.
