Educational Tours for the Investing Public

CBOE® Tours allow trading firms, financial professionals or investment groups, college level finance students and select other individuals or groups, ages 18 and older, to choose from two guided tour options.

CBOE Experience Tour

A CBOE Experience Tour allows groups of 10 to 50 people the opportunity to create a customized tour that is both meaningful and memorable for all participants. This “experience” includes a 1-hour narrated tour of the CBOE trading floor and a unique view into the S&P 500® Index pit during live trading. The experience can be enhanced with several features including a basic, intermediate or advanced level options class for an additional fee. See Tours fee schedule.

This customized tour is designed for larger groups (more than 10). If you are an individual or a group less than 10, please consider our Just a Tour option.

Just a Tour

The Just a Tour allows individuals and smaller groups less than 10 to revel in the excitement and energy of the CBOE trading floor during a 30-minute narrated tour. The participant's experience begins with an expansive view of the trading pits as seen from our Visitor's Gallery and concludes with a 15-minute Q&A session. Just a Tour is complimentary and is conducted on various Fridays throughout the year. Please view our Seminar Schedule for available dates.

This tour is designed for smaller groups (less than 10) or individuals. If you are a group of 10 or more, please consider our CBOE Experience Tour.
