A real professional and friendly set of staff members set you up for a Hop In Hop Off tour of Chicago. A great way to orient yourself in a new city, and to see the location of the major attractions. Friendly, reliable and reasonable. Well worth it.

The tour was nice, the tour guides were always very nice and funny. I also purchased the boat tour at the first stop but it would be better to buy at the Navy Pier because there are many other different tours you can chose.

We bought the GoCity package and used the bus to get around quite a bit. The tour guides were full of interesting stories and we learned more from them about some of our destinations than we did from visiting the actual places! Highly recommend adding this activity to your itinerary!
