This tour is especially designed for people who have limited time in Chicago or for those who just want to see the major tourist attractions while they're here. This tour combines multiple points of interests in a relaxed way, driving and stopping to admire and take pictures. This tour will be conducted by private car for up to 4 passengers. One of the best things about the tour is that you can briefly explore almost all of the main Chicago attractions, so that you know which sites you would like to spend more time at later.

If you prefer to make it a walking tour or if you are traveling in a larger group, please contact me for a quote. The itinerary listed is just a suggestion - I am open to adding/removing certain destinations or accommodating more people on this tour depending on your preferences, group size, and time limitations.


I'll pick you up from your hotel or another place in downtown Chicago that you specify. We'll explore the major highlights of Chicago together by a comfortable SUV, and I'll stop at places where you can take amazing pictures. We'll start at one of the most famous attractions - the Magnificent Mile - where you can see Chicago's famous shopping district as well as a variety of famous sites such as the John Hancock building, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Water Tower Mall, Tribune Tower, Wrigley Building, Michigan Ave Bridge, Chinatown, The Loop, The Gold Coast and many others. We'll continue to drive south on Michigan Ave and stop to see Millennium Park including Cloud Gate (The Bean), Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Crown Fountain and the Chicago Cultural Center. Then we will drive to Buckingham Fountain, Museum Campus, Soldier Field, Navy Pier, Lincoln Park and many more.

A Recent Review of this tour

Thank you for the last minute accommodation. The scenic driving tour was fine. At $290, maybe a little pricy but nonetheless, it was last minute. On a scale from 1-10, I'll give it a rating of 6 Overall we were satisfied with Liviu and the tour. My family and I were able to visit downtown Chicago, even if it was only for 2hrs. Thank you. Thank you
Denny Matsuda
