Bus tours can be made or broken based on the stops that they make. At See it ALL Chicago Tours, we have worked overtime to come up with the best possible chicago tour stops.

One stop that our guests really love is out at Museum Campus. This is where you go to get the best possible Chicago skyline views and pics. The Adler Planetarium, Field Museum and extremely popular Shedd Aquarium are in this area. Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bearsss is also here. Most of the well known Chicago sights can be seen from here, including the John Hancock Building, Willis (Sears) Tower, Navy Pier and more. All with the beautiful, blue waters of Lake Michigan in the foreground. Heck, you can even go down and stick your hand, foot or anything else you choose, into the cool water.
Another stop on our tours is at one of the world’s very first skyscrapers! The Rookery, with it’s Frank Lloyd Wright designed lobby, was in the movie The Untouchables. It impresses all who pass through it’s golden doors. Pictured above is “the floating staircase”. Aside from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, we are the only Chicago tour company that takes you inside this gem.
The Clarence Bucking Memorial Fountain is only on for six months each year. When it is operating, it is another fun and popular tour stop. This is a larger version of a fountain at the Palace of Versailles in France, but more importantly is known for being in the opening credits of Married with Children! For the first 20 minutes of the hour, it shoots water up 150 feet into the air. At night, the built in lights, music and water create a perfect show each hour.
Another tour stop is on wacky Wacker Drive. The upper level features beauties like the Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower, Marina City and more. Lower Wacker Drive was where Batman and The Joker had their big chase scene in The Dark Knight movie. The street parallels the Chicago river and is yet another captivating Chicago bus tour sight.
