Chicago Essentials Bus Tour

3 h
The Chicago Essentials Bus tour begins on select Sundays at 1pm and starts and ends at Rock N Roll McDonald's - 600 North Clark Street. The theme that animates throughout this tour is "What makes Chicago truly unique?". After a brief introduction, guests begin a detailed exploration of many of Chicago's hot spots located on both the city's north and south sides.

During the tour, guests will listen to stories about those bigger-than-life figures that helped forge a smelly swampland into one of the world's leading "Alpha" cities. In addition to great storytelling, guests will view Chicago's iconic skyline and hear riveting accounts of the men and women who created these monuments to mankind!

Culturally, Chicago is in a league of its own with its 561 cultural institutions including world class museums, symphony, Opera Company and countless theaters. America has given the Arts World 4 major original contributions; Blues, Jazz, Skyscrapers and Prairie Style Architecture. Chicago provided 3 out of 4 of these contributions.

In order to truly understand the depth and breadth of Chicago we need to explore the city beyond the typical tourist destinations. While these areas add considerably to Chicago's appeal, there is so much more to learn about and experience what is Essential to understanding this great city.

Chicago is a city of over 200 vibrant neighborhoods and much of what has happened or will happen in this city takes place here not at Navy Pier!
