Our Chicago/Milwaukee Tour is a great way to enjoy the Big League Tours luxury baseball tour experience over a long weekend.
We will start this tour on Friday with a visit to US Cellular Field for a special, behind the scenes tour with former White Sox slugger Ron Kittle. Then, you'll have lower level seats for the A's vs. White Sox at 7:10PM.
On Saturday, we will travel to Miller Park for the Phillies @ Brewers at 6:15PM. You will have time before the game to check out all the tailgaters and the great food available inside the ballpark.
Our last day in Chicago will take us to historic Wrigley Field for Pirates @ Cubs 1:20PM. We will get to Wrigley early so you can explore Wrigleyville and the pre-game action around the stadium. As always, you will sit close to the field in the hard-to-get, lower level seats.
We have selected one of the finest hotels for our guests. Our tour hotel is the historic Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago. You will love this beautiful, luxury hotel and its proximity to many of the attractions.

The Big League Player Experience, as well as, lower level seats, sensible itineraries, and luxury accommodations all add up to a baseball vacation that is unrivaled. If you would like to join us, just click the link below to go the the Midwest Tour 1 web page and then click Purchase This Tour.
We've had some fans ask us to give them an idea of the itineraries on our luxury baseball tours. Some want to know how much free time they will have, others are interested in the game times, travel times, etc. Since we are offering a special $200 off the West Coast Tour right now, I thought I would give a quick "thumbnail" version of our itinerary for the West Coast Tour.

The Full East Coast- Touch 'em All Out East is the baseball tour that most fans dream of taking. It includes ballgames in Citizens Bank Park, Nationals Park, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, Fenway Park, as well as, a day trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This year, though, we thought, "What if someone wants to see some of these stadiums, but can't do the whole tour?" And that's how we came up with the four different East Coast options in June.
The second option is the Hall of Fame Tour 2. We always offer Hall of Fame Tours, and this trip is essentially the second part of the East Coast Tour. It will start in NYC and include games at Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, and Fenway Park. Plus the day trip to Cooperstown. Check out the informational video for the HoF 2 Tour below:
With the new Atlantic Beltway, as well as, the other tours offered on the East Coast, we think we have the best selection of trips in the business. All of our Multi-City Tours include lower level infield seats at every game; luxury hotel accommodations in the heart of the city or near the ballpark; a Big League Tours MLB Player Experience; Stadium Tours; a BLT Tour Host on site; all transportation while on the tour; and lots of Big League Tours extras. We hope you will join us in 2013.
We really never stop thinking about baseball. And it seems that there are several other folks who are the same way. By the time the World Series was over, MLB had already released their schedules for next season and we started putting together our luxury baseball vacations. So, for the first time, we announced our baseball tour schedules to the public in October. We have been pleasantly surprised at the number of die-hard baseball fans who have visited our website, signed up for our newsletters/updates, and purchased their 2013 baseball tours. Here is a list of the most popular Multi-City tours by number of bookings, so far:
Glenn and I spent Monday making informational videos for the website. We thought it would be a good idea to discuss all the aspects of our baseball tours in a video format. That way, prospective customers can get a better sense of our baseball vacation packages and who we are. I think they turned out pretty good. It's amazing what you can do with an Ipad and IMovie. We tried to go through the basic itinerary of each tour, and discuss some of the Big League Tours differences. We also took some time to talk about some of our favorite ballparks, like Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, AT&T Ballpark, and PNC Park. We're no Redford and Newman, but I think the informal videos will help fans make a decision as to which baseball tour they want to join.
The last tour video we shot was for the Big Apple Tour 2. It was late in the day, and we got a little loose with it. So, no offense to our Mets and Yankees fans, but we posted it anyway. I put it here too, so go ahead and take a look. It's all in fun. Go to the website too, to check out the other videos. We would appreciate any feedback you might have.
They're ready! We are excited to reveal our 2013 Season Tour Packages to our fans. We have all your favorites like the Hall of Fame Tours, West Coast Tours, and the Midwest Tours; but we've also added Southwest, Southeast and Windy City tours to our schedule.

Do you by chance remember hearing the news that MVP Joey Votto was on the DL? Perhaps youare a fan of another NL Central team and you cheered on your chances, but I for one sat devastated and hoped he wouldn’t be gone long. My confession: I thought I could kiss post-season play goodbye all because my favorite first baseman was out of the lineup.
Joey’s teammates, however, thought otherwise. Over the past several weeks I’ve gleefully watched my team step up to the plate by making amazing double plays, hitting back-to-back single and two-run homers and have even watched a few heart attack comeback victories. What an amazing and flat out fun team to watch right now! Make no mistake, Votto is a great asset to the Cincinnati Reds baseball organization, and thankfully he will be back. My advice Joey, don’t rush it! Get yourself healthy. Your team has things under control! Have you seen Todd Frazier and Zach Cozart?! Have you glanced at the MLB Standings? The Reds are seven games up on the second place Pirates. SEVEN!
How exciting to be attending the Reds Road Trip to Pittsburgh and see this great matchup at PNC Park on September 29th and 30th! If you haven’t already booked your tour, do it today!
For the first time, Big League Tours is offering 3 different versions of our West Coast Tours. You, our fans, asked for more WestCoast options and we obliged with our full West Coast- Touch 'em All Out West Tour; the Baseball on the Bay Tour; and the Southern California Tour. At every stop, we'll be staying in first class hotels, sitting in great lower level seats, and doing it up the Big League Tours way.
Each tour features our exclusive Big League Tours Player Experience where our guests get to interact with a former major leaguer. Check out this video to learn more about our Player Experience- Big League Player Experience Video.
Also for the first time, we've added in-tour flights. We want to make sure our guests spend more time enjoying the great cities we visit and not spend countless hours on a bus like they would with other baseball tour companies. So, we're flying from Seattle to San Fran, San Fran to LA, and San Diego to Phoenix. It's all included in the tour price and we'll take care of the details.
