Chicago Deluxe Motor Coach Tour
This is a very thorough and relaxing city highlights tour! We pick up at three downtown hotels before beginning our adventure at 875 N. Michigan, the former John Hancock Center. We’ll have a photo-stop at the home of the Cubs, the legendary Wrigley Field. We’ll then take Lake Shore Drive to the home of the Bears, the historic Soldier Field. We’ll make a photo-stop at the Museum Campus for the best view of the lake and skyline. Passing by the White Sox stadium, your driver and tour guide will take you through Chinatown, Greektown, and other fun areas. We’ll show you the architectural masterpieces of the Loop on the way to our origin at the top of the Magnificent Mile and the destination hotels.

Our drivers were very knowledgeable and interesting. Easy way to get around the city. On top of the double decker is great in good weather but the trolley was exceptional and warm in the rain.

Loved it, a great way to get your sense of direction in Chicago. If you can get the seat at the top sheltered by the glass then that makes its warmer.

The tour is about 2 1/2 hours long. That gives you time for getting off and enjoying the Lincon Park lights and also the Festival in Downtown. Hope this helps.
