    What to Expect
    Discover more than 100 years of cinema history during this Chicago film tour, a city where more than 75 different Hollywood productions were shot. Over the course of this 2-hour journey you'll get to explore film sites for such iconic movies as My Best Friend's Wedding, Transformers 3, and The Untouchables while also getting a chance see the most beautiful neighborhoods of this picturesque city along the shores of Lake Michigan.
    Meet your guide and transportation at either 10:30am or 12:30pm (depending on the option selected) on Clark Street between Ohio and Ontario. Continue out for your tour, covering around 30 miles of Chicago streets and more than 75 different filming locations. As you move from location to location, check out the on board TV screens, which will showcase clips from each film to help provide additional context. 
    During your excursion you'll also traverse popular Chicago neighborhoods including Wrigleyville, the Gold Coast and Uptown. Listen to highlights about each area's history from your guide as you pass through. Finish your tour after approximately 2 hours back at your original starting point.
