Illinois tours

Tours of Illinois allow you to see some of the best sights of the American Midwest, from the shores of the vast Lake Michigan, to cosmopolitan cities, spectacular state parks and fascinating museums and attractions, plus its legendary music scene. Our Destination Specialists are experts at creating exciting itineraries to take you to the heart of the USA.

Illinois is where Route 66 begins and a fascinating journey into Americana starts. Embark on a Great Lakes Explorer tour and you’ll experience the majesty of wide open wilderness trails, or climb aboard the California Zephyr all the way to the streets of San Francisco. Follow your passion with a Chicago Architecture Photography River Cruise before descending on the city’s jazz scene. Head up to the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower for astounding views of the city skyline and shimmering Lake Michigan. But if you think Illinois is just about the Magnificent Mile and the Chicago 360, then prepare to be astounded. Get out into the wild when you roam through Shawnee National Forest to gaze at the Garden of the Gods.

Combine historic Washington DC with a Chicago multi centre and you’ll soon realise there’s more to the USA than the east and west coast. Experience small-batch breweries, distilleries, artisan food producers, plus historic sites including the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield and the home of crusading architect, Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park. Filled with world class attractions, the Prairie State is a captivating place to explore.
