Hop On, Hop Off Tour
Ride The Red and Green Trolleys and the Red Double Decker Buses. The Hop On, Hop Off Tour ticket gives you transportation to the most famous Chicago attractions. You will enjoy our two hour Signature Tour, covering 13 magnificent miles of Chicago's downtown and the Loop. The Signature Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour runs all year long, seven days a week except for inclement weather days, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The vehicles run 5 to 10 minutes apart in the summer (wait times are longer in the off season) so you can hop back on with your ticket all day.
Explore Chicago Tour
With the Explore Chicago Ticket, you not only get the Signature Tour, you also get three Neighborhood Tours (which run from May through early September). With the Explore Chicago Ticket you can go visit a Chicago attraction or museum, shop until you drop, or enjoy lunch and just explore and you have three full days to use it.
Ticketed passengers receive a complimentary Hershey's chocolate bar and Garrett Popcorn sample and more. Visit their specials and promotions page for a sneak peak at all the goodies you can get with your purchase of a ticket.
