Chicago Day 1

Though we had not planned to take a formal tour, after reviewing some materials at our campsite, we decided to book the Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Company tour as it really sold itself. The tour offers fourteen pickups around town, each near a slew of interesting attractions including Millennium Park, The Michigan Avenue Bridge, Miracle Mile, and Navy Pier.

In addition to the convenient pickups, with your pass, you could hop ON and OFF at any stop no matter what time as long as seats were available – they always are – and the historic narrative by the live tour guide is entertaining and in depth, plus, you can ask questions easily.

Not only is it extremely informative and flexible, at only $35 for a three day pass – it’s cheaper than a cab or the L! Whether you’re a newly minted Chicago tourist, or a native who wants to show family around, we highly recommend their service.
