Tip 1 The Official Guide Book is NOT your ticket. You received your tour ticket at time of purchase. Please keep this ticket with you at all times: it is needed to board all of our tour vehicles.
Tip 2 For safety, passengers are not permitted to stand on the trolleys or buses. Occasionally a vehicle arrives with no available seats. Don’t worry: another vehicle will arrive soon. And if you want a specific type of vehicle, your wait time may increase.
Tip 3 Chicago’s festivals, drawbridges, and traffic sometimes cause delays and re-routes. These conditions may alter arrival times at tour stops.
Tip 4 Our Downtown Tour begins daily at 9 a.m. with last day tours starting at 5 p.m. Allow extra time at each stop for wait time and boarding at the end of the day.
Tip 5 We still operate our open-top buses on cold or rainy days. With Chicago’s unpredictable weather, we’re unable to offer refunds due to weather, however, we’ll try to make these days comfortable for you.
