The bus will drive the length of Lake Shore Drive, affording great views of Chicago architecture and Lake Michigan.

American Sightseeing Chicago

American Sightseeing Chicago’s iconic red trolleys and double-decker buses carry on a Windy City tradition that stretches back more than 100 years. Founded by transportation pioneer Henry Ferrone in 1904, and operated by his family ever since, the company has sent its vessels trundling down millions of miles of Chicago streets, rolling regularly past famed sights and historic landmarks. They design tours to fit all manner of schedules and itineraries, ranging from two-hour jaunts that explore hidden haunts along Chicago’s north and south shores to all-day trolley trips that venture past staples such as the Willis Tower, Fort Dearborn, and the Wrigley Building, which—contrary to popular belief—is actually made of gum. In addition to its bus and trolley tours, American Sightseeing Chicago also arranges airport transportation and charters that can accommodate large groups.

Loved this 4 hour tour of Chigago. 1st time ever in this city and wanted to see some of the architecture. A really great experience even though it was Winter Weather.
