This combination of the North and South Side Tours provides a glimpse of everything that makes Chicago famous.

The North Side Tour features the hustle and bustle of the Windy City. Travel through Chicago's central business district, one of the foremost financial centers in the world. See the renowned Loop and visit State Street, where the city's fame was born.

A portion of the tour route includes a portion of Wacker Drive, a double-decked roadway beneath the city near the Richard J. Daley Plaza, which displays a sculpture that Pablo Picasso donated to the city. The tour then crosses the Chicago River, which was reversed during a civil engineering project in 1900.

See the white facade of the Wrigley Building that heralds the start of the Magnificent Mile, which is home of the city's most exclusive retailers. View the 758,000-square-foot Water Tower Place shopping complex and the John Hancock Building, the fourth tallest structure in Chicago.

The tour travels through Lincoln Park, which encompasses 1,200 beautiful acres with historic statues, rowing canals, ball fields, lagoons and an incredible zoo. See Wrigley Field, the famous stadium that hosts Chicago Cubs baseball games and the Newberry Reference Library as well as the Chicago History Museum, the Botanical Gardens and a Kwagulth Totem Pole.

The South Side Tour highlights the history, beauty and culture of Chicago. You will travel through the beloved Grant Park. This lakeshore expanse is home to Soldier Field, the sky dome-topped Adler Planetarium and the outdoor Petrillo Music Shell that hosts music festivals and concerts.

The tour route includes the Shedd Aquarium, one of the world's largest indoor oceanariums and the acclaimed Art Institute of Chicago, which has over 260,000 works of art. The Orchestra Hall is the home of the renowned Chicago Symphony. The 80-story tall Aon Center commemorates special events with its lights, and the historic Field Museum of Natural History is renowned for the scope and size of its collection.

The experience continues with a trek through the South Commons neighborhood and 500-acre Jackson Park, which was designed by the architects of New York Central Park. You will see the University of Chicago's Gothic-inspired architecture and the Museum of Science and Industry that hosts over 14 acres of interactive exhibits. The trip also includes the Lake Point Towers apartment complex, the tallest structure of its kind in the world, and the Navy Pier entertainment complex.

The tour culminates at the John Hancock Center, which was once the tallest building outside of the Big Apple. You will see a dazzling, fast-paced multimedia show before entering one of the fastest elevators in the world for a 39-second express ride to the observatory situated over 1,000 feet above street level. The 94th floor Observatory has an ice skating rink during the winter, sweeping skyline views and the city's only outdoor skywalk. In addition to Lake Michigan, you can view the scenery of the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana up to 80 miles away.
