We also got Frango mints and popcorn. I would recommend this... More

The guide was amazingly knowledgeable and entertaining. Despite a cold, wintry day he kept us engaged. Unfortunately the underground Chicago Pedway System was unexpectedly closed on Sundays. So take this into account on booking tours on Sundays in the winter season.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
