I will take the microphone on your tour bus and guide the driver as your group sits back and enjoys an overview of Chicago. We will begin in the loop (business district) near the birthplace of the City where the River meets Lake Michigan. We will then trace the history of the city to the south side Hyde Park site of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Proceeding north along the Lake Front will take us to the Museum campus with its breathtaking view of the city and continue north to the 1200 acre Lincoln Park. Our trip will span much of the 18 mile long Lake Shore Drive along beautiful Lake Michigan. Several stops, including the new Millennium Park, will allow opportunities for brief walks and discussions of Chicago's history, beauty, art, architecture and culture. The maximum size of the group is 55 for large buses
Generally tours cover the core of the City and the lakefront to show many icons of Chicago but customizing for your group is my specialty and my pleasure.
