Great ride. great crew, great value
Excellent! Tour guide very informative and entertaining.
Don't miss this tour of the amazing Chicago architecture. It's the best way to see it all. We had a great tour guide...they always are! This particular tour included a speed boat ride at the end of the tour on Lake Michigan....it was sooo much fun!!
Great way to see the city
It was a good, thorough introduction to Chicago. I recommend beginning with a city tour as it will allow you to highlight what you would like to revisit for the rest of your stay there. Plus, a tour makes it easy to get around the city as opposed to doing it on your own. A tour is a small investment in your trip that is definitely worth it!
The driver/narrorator is very good. One highlight is President Obama's house. However, this tour takes place on a large bus - I recommend a tour in a minivan as it will give an up close, more personable introduction to the city. A minivan will also probably be able to make more stops.
Missed this one, but the tour operator offered the Speed Dog which cruised the lake at high speed. Awesome.
Best part was the fast boat ride on the lake. Cruising down the river a bit boring especially after hop on/off bus.
The tour was informative and the guides knew their city.
Extremely disappointing considering this was the main tour booked for our short stay in Chicago. Our bus driver was not interested in us getting photo opportunities, just went thru his spiel. He was also reading the newspaper at red lights. He did not want to answer questions either, and was quite abrupt and rude with one particular woman. The tour was disrupted halfway with combining another group and we had to redo part of the tour again for their benefit. We also had to change buses to get to the hancock tower which due to the smog we could not view anything once at top. Given the driver should be aware of these things before dropping us off, to allow us to make alternative decisions. I would most definitely not recommend this tour, and would instead warn people not to take it!!
We were all very impressed with the service. We were on a girls day out (8 of us). The service saved us money (day pass) as well as missing the traffice congestion travel about the city. Would recomment your water taxi service to all! We had a wonderful day out!!!
I have to admit that I thought 4 hours on a bus how boring, but I was wrong....We saw so much of the City and then was able to write down what I would like to visit again....excellent could not ask for anything more.....Thank you for making our trip very informative and enjoyable.
The tour was excellent. Would do it again in a heart beat!
very pleasant staff
This was a fantastic tour which combined the thrill of the high speed ride on the lake, going through the locks into the river and then the best views of the amazing architecture from the river. Our tour guide was knowledgable and funny. We had a great time and would highly recommend it.
