Welcome to Chicago! Meet your Tour Manager and visit the Field Museum of Natural History. Whether you are most interested in learning about dinosaurs or ancient civilizations there is so much to see and experience. Tonight ascend 100 stories to the John Hancock Observatory for a panoramic view of the lakefront and the Chicago skyline.
During the morning city sightseeing tour, you will be introduced to Hyde Park (the home of Barack Obama and the University of Chicago), the Robie House, the Buckingham Fountain and the Bean. After lunch, visit the incomparable Museum of Science and Industry, one of the most visited museums in the world with more than 800 interactive exhibits that make complex scientific principals understandable. After dinner, visit Navy Pier, the Midwest’s principal tourist attraction with rides, shops and plenty of culture.
Following breakfast, visit the Shedd Aquarium where the stunning architecture of the building is just as much worth paying attention to as the many aquatic animals and sea life. As no trip to Chicago can be complete without some time on the Magnificent Mile, spend some time here for last minute souvenirs before returning home.
