Chicago has a very walkable downtown, but some of the most popular sites for visitors are far out from the center. If you want to see Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Cubs), the Botanical Gardens, and Lincoln Park (with its famous conservatory), this is the best tour to take. You’ll also get to check out some major sites of the city center, like Richard J. Daley Plaza, the Magnificent Mile, the John Hancock Tower (home of 360 CHICAGO), and the seven-story shopping center, Water Tower Place.
