Holiday Lights Tour December 23

The Holiday Lights Tour is a beautiful tour that shows off all the twinkling holiday lights in Chicago! From the skyline at the Adler Planetarium, to the glowing Magnificent Mile.

This year, Big Bus Tours Chicago and the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) have teamed up to create an amazing route across the city showing off the holiday lights. This 1.5 hour panoramic tour puts the city on display for all to see the beauty of Chicago at night. It is not a hop-on, hop-off type of tour, instead you stay seated the entire time as you traverse the city. There are a few gorgeous hand-picked photo opportunities to make your time in Chicago during the holiday season one to remember!

The Holiday Lights Tour is only available Fridays and Saturdays through December 23.Starting December 26, the Holiday Lights Tour will run every night until December 30. 

Check tour times and book the tour on the CAF website, choose the Upper Deck or Lower Deck; enjoy as we take you through our beautiful city of Chicago!
