Chicago is a city with unlimited options, so why should your sightseeing experience be any different?  If you are open to the possibilities, there is a wide array of tours and cruises that will show you exactly what Chicago is all about.  Hop On & Hop Off Trolley Tours are a favorite among travelers, as this affords the opportunity to see only the sights that are of particular interest to you and skip those that don’t spark as much enthusiasm.

Another popular way to see the city is via one of the amazing architecture tours.  With guided commentary given by talented professionals in the architecture industry, you will be informed and entertained throughout the duration of your trip.  Elegant dinner cruises along Lake Michigan give you additional opportunities to marvel at the great skyscrapers and enjoy a romantic night under the stars.

Tours of the Chicago skyline by boat offer an up close and personal view of some of Chicago’s finest lakefront sights in a comprehensive 30 minute format and many of these cruises run year-round so you can plan early for the spring and summer months or hop on board much sooner.  Famous points of interest include the Sears Tower, Shedd Aquarium, and Field Museum of Natural History.

With all that there is to see in Chicago, it is easy to see that it is a trip worth making at any time of year, so you don’t need to wait until the summer to take a walking tour to see the historic skyscrapers or scour the city for a bargain on a shopping tour.

If you are in Chicago at Christmastime, check out the Chicago Holiday Lights Tour and see how beautiful the ‘Windy City’ can look as it is illuminated and decked out with festive holiday decorations.  As part of the trip, you will stop at the German Christkindlmarket, the largest traditional German holiday market outside of Germany itself.
