What's tour about

See the Windy City from the very best vantage point: 103 floors above the ground! This Windy City icon has recently been redone from the ground up, and not only does it offer some of the best views of the city and its landmarks, it also features museum-quality exhibits and interactive technology that celebrate Chicago's history.

Get up (nearly) to the top of the second-tallest building in the US and look 400 meters straight down to the ground from The Ledge.

Alright, now that you've done your research, it's time to get your tickets for this Second City landmark. After taking the rocket-speed elevator to floor 103 of this 108-story skyscraper you'll have stunning views over the city: Wrigley Field, O'Hare Airport, Lincoln Park Zoo, Soldier Field, and more.

And it's not just Chicago — on a clear day you can see four different states (Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, and of course Illinois).

IMPORTANT: Entrance tickets to the Willis tower aren't included in this tour but we can provide them additionally if you request in advance.
