Chicago is ordinarily such a picturesque city that it becomes truly extraordinary when it's dressed up with holiday lights. This unique holiday experience combines a fun and informative walking tour of the city's history with an entertaining bus tour showcasing Chicago's festival of lights. The walking portion of the three-and-a-half-hour guided tour takes place from the comfort of part of Chicago's Pedway, the city's six-mile indoor heated walkway. After wrapping up the walk at Macy's legendary Walnut Room, you'll board a bus for the last hour of the tour, visiting State Street, the Daley Plaza Christmas Tree, "Christkindlmarket," the Palmer House Hilton, the Water Tower and the heralded Drake Hotel. The bus then traverses the world-famous Magnificent Mile on its way back to the East Wacker starting location. All tours include a holiday trivia contest and ugly Christmas sweater competition, with prizes. Learn More

Extreme Thrill Ride (30 min.):
For a truly wet and wild experience, the Seadog Extreme is 30% faster than her doggie siblings! Topping out at 45mph on the open water, the Seadog Extreme is the most horse-powered commercial passenger vessel of its kind currently cruising the Great Lakes.
With exhilarating high speeds and full 180-360° spins, this jet-propelled ride blasts off to start and splashes down to stop! Experience full throttle slalom runs, sharp twists and turns, and feel the raw power and excitement of the Seadog Extreme's two 1400 HP engines. Also enjoy rock-n-roll music and a fun narration about Chicago.
