Full description

Enjoy an unrivaled view over the city of Chicago on a trip up the city's Willis Tower. This famous building, once known as the Sears Tower, is not only home to a Skydeck on the 103rd floor, but it also features The Ledge, a series of 4 glass-paneled boxes that extend out from the building's facade to give visitors a view straight down. As you wind through the ground levels of the Willis Tower, you will be surrounded by museum-quality exhibits highlighting the iconic tower. Learn about Chicago's rich history and culture through these informative visuals. Watch a video presentation, "Reaching for the Sky," where you will be briefed on the history of the building and of architecture in Chicago. Then step into your elevator and you will be amazed at how quickly it ascends. As you travel, your multimedia-equipped elevator will inform you about your vertical progress. Upon reaching the 103rd floor, step out onto the Skydeck, which offers views spanning over 50 miles and across 4 states. Then summon your courage to step out onto The Ledge, a glass balcony that hangs over the edge, for vertigo-inducing views 1,353 feet (about 412 meters) straight down to the city below! Download the Skydeck Mobile App for a free viewfinder which points out many of Chicago’s notable landmarks.

Great thing to do to see Chicago views, and the lead in tour of the city was very informative. You only get 2 mins on the Ledge however, even if you are a big group. So if you plan to take photos, I suggest you split up into smaller groups so you all have time to take a photo on the Ledge.

My experience on the ledge was extraordinary!! It was a triumph for me being afraid of heights but I love to travel by airplane. I was so geeked after the experience I walked from downtown Chicago all the way back to my hotel 30 minutes or more away. A must do activity❤️‍. YoYo. Aka Lady Redd.

Great experience, however, you should offer guests different options to purchase the pictures taken by your employees. It was "all or nothing", & I felt that wasn't fair to customers. Not only did we pay for tickets, but also bought souvenirs, $58 worth. I would've purchased the 2 5×7/4×6's if they would've let me. Associate said,"you cant split them, it's all or none." Thank you
