The two-hour tour covers 13 miles of Chicago’s downtown area and the Loop, covering an assortment of shops, restaurants, museums, stores and more.

We used this tour all weekend to learn about the architecture of Chicago, but also as a means of transportation to all the major sightseeing venues. Today we had a tour guide named Shannon and Wanda was the bus driver. We had four different tour guides over the weekend and Shannon out ranked them all by far with her amazing amount of knowledge, her great disposition and the way she engaged everyone. Really impressive. Wanda was wonderful and a master in the traffic. Great time.
I have been to Chicago numerous times but had never taken a tour like this one. We took the day tour which had 13 sightseeing stops. The night tour has 9 stops. You can hop off at any of the stops that interest you, then hop back on later. I recommend sitting atop the bus for a spectacular view of the sky and all the sights. I also recommend starting early in the day. The traffic gets bad and the amount of time it takes to get through all 13 stops eats into your day. Take your sunglasses and sunblock if sitting atop on a sunny day. This is a great way to see and hear the history of Chicago.

But the weather was perfect too. I had a lot of fun learning about this city. I went 3 times in my 24 hour period...the city is loaded with history. I might prefer it over N.Y. And the trolley and bus had alot to do with that.
We bought two of the three day passes for a total of six days. We used this as our transportation around the city as my father is older and needs some breaks from walking. We also took some night tours, some of the extra tours, and even stayed on for the whole tour many of times. Each tour guide gave a different tour which is awesome. I learned something new each and every trip. We loved it. Only thing that I have to say is that I wish that each and every morning when they were to start at nine that they would be there by nine and not run late, but other then that no complaints. Have used this everytime I have come to Chicago and plan to continue to do so. Ps hope the one tour guide that hit his head on the street light on Wednesday 5/18 is ok.
