What you can expect

Take a breezy spin around the Windy City as you discover the parks, architecture, and jazzy atmosphere of Chicago on a double-decker bus. Get a lay of the land in this Midwest metropolis by bus, and hop on and off at landmarks like Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, and the Willis Tower.

Climb aboard a spacious bus and begin your urban exploration. Take in the passing scenery of bold, modern architecture and soaring skyscrapers, and soak up vistas of its stunning waterfront developments and tranquil green parks.

Cruise through Grant Park, known as Chicago’s “front yard,” and hop off to stretch your legs in Millennium Park, a symbol of downtown's transformation into a 21st-century city. Head toward the famous shops of the Magnificent Mile and continue over the Chicago River on Michigan Avenue Bridge as you learn about the sights from an entertaining on-board guide.
