Explore Chicago at your own pace during this hop-on hop-off trolley tour of the city. See tons of city highlights in a short time, without worrying about driving and navigation, and enjoy onboard commentary from an expert as you ride. You can also listen on an app if you prefer a language other than English.
What to Expect
Your Chicago tour starts when you board the hop-on hop-off trolley. You can board at any of the 14 stops around the city. Just turn in your voucher to an employee, and find a seat.

The trolleys run every 15–20 minutes, so you’re never waiting a long time for one to come. Along the route, learn about the city’s history from your onboard guide, or use an app to hear audio commentary in German, Chinese, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Tour-stop highlights include Skydeck Chicago, Michigan Avenue Bridge, 360 Chicago, and Navy Pier. Plan your own itinerary, and get off stops that interest you most.

This flexible tour lets you decide your own ending time and location.

I am not sure about parking a car as I took, uber, bus and train all around the city. There are tickets located at each stop, look for the red kiosk. Or you can buy them online at their website.
