Panoramic and Scenic North Side Tour tickets

Gate Prices Adult $29.00
Child (3-12) $15.00

This Gray Line tour of Chicago’s North Side is a two-hour journey through the sites of downtown Chicago and the North Side attractions. You’ll wind around “The Loop,” through the financial district, past some of the most famous Chicago landmarks, and head all the way up to Lincoln Park. It’s a great introduction to some of the major sites in the Windy City.

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.

The Chicago Explorer Pass is the best choice for maximum savings and flexibility. Choose to use your pass for Panoramic and Scenic North Side Tour tickets, then look to the list of other top attractions for your other Explorer Pass admission choices!
