    What to Expect
    Make your way to the meeting point at the corner of Monroe and Columbus in downtown Chicago to meet your guide. Listen to a short safety briefing and practice riding the self-balancing, 2-wheeled electric scooter.

    Once you're comfortable with the controls and basic maneuvers, zoom off through Grant Park to see the Lincoln Statue and Buckingham Fountain. Learn about the architects that founded and defined the distinct Chicago School of Design such as van der Rohe, Wright, Burnham, and Sullivan. 

    Ride through one of Chicago's Millennium Park, 24.5 acres (10 hectares) of parkland that is home to works from many famous artists, designers, and architects along the Lake Michigan waterfront. Pass the Art Institute of Chicago and the Water Tower on the iconic Magnificent Mile. View structures like the Pritzker Pavilion, the Bean, and the Crown Fountain. 

    Your tour ends up back at its starting point.
