See the North Side and South Shore business and residential districts on this four-hour Chicago tour of America's Windy City!

On your Chicago Tour with Gray Line, you will travel through Grant Park, the front lawn of the city and the site of Soldier Field. Discover the Art Institute of Chicago and Orchestra Hall, home of the famous Chicago Symphony. See the Museum of Science and Industry and Lake Point Towers -- once the world's tallest apartment building -- an architecturally stunning building of glass and curves.

Tour the famous 'Loop' and State Street and journey over the Chicago River, made to flow backwards by one of the world's greatest engineering feats.

All the sights covered in the North Side and South Shore tours are included in the Grand Tour. If time permits, the Chicago tour stops to take in the breathtaking views at the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Museum Campus.

Whether you are in the city for a day or a week, a Chicago tour gives you a wonderful overview of the city. If you only have a day, you and your family will see the best highlights of the area. If you are spending more time in the city, you will leave with a clear idea of where you want to focus the rest of your vacation!
