Tour Itinerary

This land tour will take you past all the sights of Chicago’s Scenic North Side. Heading north out of the Loop past Millennium Park and up the Magnificent Mile where you will see the Fort Dearborn historical site, Chicago River, Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower and Chicago Water Tower and Pumping Station. Your journey continues along Lake Michigan on North Lake Shore Drive to Wrigley Field.

You will also enjoy a 90-minute Architecture River Cruise aboard Chicago Line Cruises.
Throughout the signature cruise one of the award-winning Docents will present more than 50 skyscrapers, bascule bridges, and historic sites.
In a world of iconic architecture, only a few images are so instantly recognized they need no subtitle. Think of the Venetian canals, a Shinto temple, the medieval Cathedral at Chartres, or the unmistakable skyline of Chicago. Each year thousands of architecture lovers travel to the City of Chicago, the birthplace of the skyscraper… and thousands book passage aboard this enthralling river tour, widely considered the best 90-minutes spent in Chicago. On your Architectural Tour you will learn how the Great Chicago Fire jumped a river and allowed for visionaries of structural steel and plate glass, such as John Wellborn Root, William Le Baron Jenney, Louis Sullivan (Wright’s mentor) and Daniel Burnham, in less than ten years, lift Chicago from the ashes of the fire to new heights. Chicago’s ascent continued into the 20th century with titanic figures such as Bertrand Goldberg, Fazlur Khan and Mies van der Rohe – (higher/taller) buildings, sleeker – and it has soared in the 21st century with audacious new steeples such as The Trump Tower and Aqua designed by Jeanne Gang, an internationally known artist of architectural design. A jaw-dropping excursion through a city that defied all expectations … even the laws of gravity.
