We have been on the la and San Fran versions of the hop on bus. They were far better than this set up. First guide, had only just started, was terrible. Points for enthusiasm but zero for content. We bought a ticket with added boat ride. Asked two staff members directions who I can only guess didn't know them selves. Disappointed and if this was my first experience with this style of guide I wouldn't return.

For a first timer to Chicago, this provided a good overall glimpse at this impressive city. Do both the green and red routes. Very dependent on a good tour guide as well.

A hop on - hop off tour, a whole tour takes about 2 and 1/2 hours (red and green). 36$/ adult (5/2017). You will see main attractions of Chicago. The guides are very knowable, we have four of them whole tour - we have 24h ticket and enjoyed that, they also have 48 and 72h tickets. Special mention to Earl.

We arrived in Chicago to a chilly 50° and rode the top of the double-decker bus which I would not suggest. But we did get a three day pass and were able to use the buses on several other occasions to get from one attraction to another to do the whole tour took three hours because of traffic in the city but The tour guides were very informative and made the time pass I would definitely recommend doing this when you first get to town so that you can see what you want to go back and look at
