Overview

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.

Can't say exactly, but if the hotel is "downtown", they will pick you up. If you are concerned, you can call them directly for their response.
