Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

Meeting place is outside of the Hoyt's sign at the Wyndham Hotel. Time depends on the schedule you chose. They run (I think) four guided tours in a day. The last tour starts at 8PM. Hope this helped.
