Great way to see the incredible architecture the city has to offer! Chicago has an abundant history, which the tour guide does a great job of incorporating into the tour.

This cruise was a great way to see the city of Chicago. The commentary was interesting and informative and I learned a lot not just about the buildings, but the history of Chicago too.

Javier was an amazing guide - really great history and information on the architecture and he could answer everyone's questions. The Chicago Architecture River Cruise has amazing views of all the must see buildings in Chicago, it's like a greatest hits album for architecture. Well done!

This tour was great! It was enjoyable just to be cruising on the river on a beautiful day, the very informative tour was added bonus. Our guide was fantastic! One of those one in a million types that make everything a hundred times better! I'd definitely recommend this to others!

A great tour from Shoreline Cruises. My friends and I had a lot of fun, the tour guide was knowledgeable and funny, and the views were spectacular. I also got a good deal on Viator, that priced this about $10 cheaper than similar tours.

This was such a great tour!! The narrator of the tour was absolutely awesome! Very smart, informative and even funny. Every one on the boat seemed to have a good time and was very impressed! A must do in Chicago! It put our double decker tour to shame!

Would definitely recommend to others! The boat ride itself lasted an hour up and back along the river. Fortunately the weather was relatively warm with little wind for a November so we were able to do the tour from the top of the boat which was enjoyable. There is also an indoor area below for bad weather. Kevin was a fabulous docent who educated and entertained the group with interesting info on the buildings of Chicago and other historical tidbits about the city itself. I would go again! Viator saved us about $6.00 per ticket compared to the on-site ticket booth prices.

Excellent! Tour director was awesome and even sang us a tune he had written about Chicago at the end. Would've been nicer if it was a little warmer but that's Mother Nature!

Even though it rained during our river cruise tour the narrator kept going and we had a great time. The narrator was very informed, had a very nice presentation demeanor, and was very entertaining. We had a great time and highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about the history and architecture of Chicago.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The information and history were fascinating. The highlight of the trip was our guide. She was a young gal, and she was so animated, that we thought we were at a Broadway show!
