chicago sightseeing tour
Our Chicago bus tour and Chicago River Architecture Boat Tour combine to provide the ultimate chicago sightseeing tour. Our Chicago River Architecture tour partner, Shoreline Sightseeing provides the chicago boat tour. It is the number one booked tour in the country, according to TripAdvisor.
First, you’ll take our award winning two hour chicago bus tour. This tour has fun photo stops at places like The Buckingham Fountain, Museum Campus (with it’s unparalleled skyline views), The Rookery (with it’s incredible Frank Lloyd Wright lobby) and wacky Wacker Drive. We’ll also take you through Lincoln Park, home of the famous zoo and Second City comedy club. Plenty of fun and informative narration will give you a nice understanding of Chicago’s past, present and future.
Then, it’s off to your one hour and fifteen minute Chicago river architecture boat tour. You can take your boat tour right after the bus tour, or you can use your boat tour tickets at a later time. Maybe you will be hungry for some deep dish Chicago style pizza. Perhaps it’s a Chicago style hot dog. Possibly something a little nicer. What if it’s raining and you want to go when it’s not. Your boat tour tickets are good for any time you want to use them.
We’ll stop at the buckingham fountain. It is a much larger version of a fountain at the Palace of Versailles in France. More importantly, it is also shown in the beginning of the TV show Married With Children. This is just one of the stops on our Chicago boat tour and Chicago bus tour combination.
Millinium Park in Chicago is another sight that we see on our chicago sightseeing tour. Here you will find The Pritzker Pavillion. It is a free concert venue, usually featuring classical music. The bandshell was designed by Frank Gehry. He also designed The Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, as well as The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao Spain. The Crown Fountain and incredibly popular piece of public art with giant faces and water flying everywhere. The giant, city reflecting Bean (actually called Cloudgate) is huge, popular and a must see for Chicago visitors.
