Chicago Riverwalk
If the weather is good, we'll be able to take a wander down to this iconic river and soak in the views it has to offer. Sights include Marina Towers and the Britannica Building. (Note: this stop is not part of the tour during the winter months).

Wrigley Building
You can't think of Chicago without thinking of the Wrigley Company. This skyscraper with its central clocktower, first built in the early 1900s, no longer houses the Wrigley Company, but is home to several other significant businesses and consulates.

Tribune Tower
This building represents the core of journalism in Chicago and is home to the newspaper 'The Chicago Tribune'. Soak in the views of this beautifully picturesque building - which marries two of Chicago's most well-known industries: journalism and architecture.

This is where your tour ends and where the iconic "Bean" sculpture (actually called The Cloud Gate) lives. You'll have plenty of time to soak in Chicago's most famous piece of art before your tour concludes. You'll be in the perfect central location to continue exploring Chicago - with plenty of restaurant, bar, and attraction recommendations from your guide.
