Check many Chicago's landmarks off your must-see list with this small-group sightseeing tour aboard a minibus. Cover more ground than on foot, and hit lots of highlights over the tour. You’ll see the Museum Campus, Rookery, and Lincoln Park, accompanied by in-depth commentary from your guide. Upgrade to include a 75-minute Chicago architecture tour by boat, one of the most popular tours in the city.

What to Expect

Begin your Chicago sightseeing adventure with convenient pickup from most downtown Chicago hotels, where you'll board a climate-controlled minibus with your group of 12 or fewer. The small group ensures personalized attention from your guide.

Journey through downtown, known as the Loop, and listen as your guide details its historical and architectural heritage. Head to some north-side neighborhoods that other tours miss, such as Lincoln Park and Gold Coast, to see how locals live. Check out the Museum Campus and Millennium Park, and get epic photo ops of the Chicago skyline.

Upgrade to include the popular architecture boat cruise on the Chicago River, which often books up. The onboard commentary sheds light on the city's architecture and the river’s place in history.

If not taking the boat tour, you’ll be returned to your hotel. Otherwise, you’ll be transported to the boat departure point and are responsible for your return transport.

cold day, great tour

On an unseasonably cold and pretty miserable Chicago day, Rick, our driver was fantastic. He obviously has a great love of this beautiful city and his commentary was informative and laced with humour. He couldn't have been any nicer. We loved it. Warren and Kim

Paul was our tour guide on the mini bus. He was informative and humorous...manuerving the downtown traffic without losing his cool. Not the best way to see the skyscrapers from inside a van but he did the best he could. Bill was our docent on...More

Great trip!

We really enjoyed this tour. We loved how our tour guide added the Conservatory of Flowers in Lincoln Park because it was raining so our other stops were not good. The Conservatory was my favorite part! The flowers were gorgeous! Our guide tried very hard...More

I just picked up a hotel from the list that was closest to where I was staying. Because I went when the weather was colder there was no architectural tour.
