What to expect

Chicago has it all – amazing architecture, great food, and iconic sights both old and new. 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!

Your first stop is inside one of the best-preserved spaces built for shopping in Chicago, before heading towards the Chicago Pedway - a network of underground tunnels used by locals and commuters to move about the city. You'll then head back above-ground near City Hall, and on most weekdays, you'll be able to venture inside and admire the classic interior design and architecture. Next, Chicago-style popcorn awaits. Weather permitting, you'll stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk while taking in views of the Marina Towers, the Britannica Building, and the Sears Tower.

The tour wouldn't be complete without hopping on the ‘L’ train or a water taxi on the Chicago River (depending on the weather and time of year). Back on solid ground, you’ll enjoy views of the world-famous Wrigley Building and the incredible Chicago Tribune building on your way another delicious treat. Finally, you’ll take a stroll through the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue before ending the our at Millennium Park, home to the iconic Bean sculpture.
