A marvelous experience!!!! What a wonderful way to see Chicago! I never really appreciated the architecture before, but his tour really opened my eyes and made me appreciative of the beauty of the buildings and environs of Chicago. Our tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. A MUST DO in this great city!

Loved the trip.....travel guide was superb......weather was perfect. Just a side note:
I was unable to reach the Chicago ticket office to find out if there were any openings for the 10/9 tour
at 11:30AM. Since I couldn't reach them, I called Viator and bought my tickets on line for 31.50 each.
Just my luck, the box office was having a special sale on October 9th.....and the tickets were only $18.50.
Oh well, it was worth the money either way. Thanks for your help!

Great commentary, comfortable boat, perfect length, beautiful view. If you're into this kind of thing, do it. If you're not, do it anyway and have a cocktail from the bar.

We had the best tour guide ever-including trips to Italy, England, France, Spain, and Germany. Victor, of Shoreline tours was nothing short of incredible. We will go back with friends and request Victor!

I live in Chicago and do this tour once a year. It's one of the best tours the city has to offer. The views of the city and buildings are amazing and it wows me each time. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who comes to Chicago - it's a must do.

I sure hope the company is paying our tour guide what he's worth!!! Excellent commentary: knowledgeable and entertaining. (We were on the "Voyageur" boat - sadly, I've forgotten the guide's name.)

Last minute decision because I had a little more time on my hands than expected because of the slow down at O'Hare. Viator was great in getting everything lined up for me on a moments notice. The Chicago Architecture Cruise was better than expected. Tour guide was extremely informative and personable. He even played the Harmonica for us..........and he was really good at it!! Snacks, Beer and Wine are available for sale onboard and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. Great way to see this beautiul rich city in a short period of time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chicago!

this was my 3rd time taking this tour (1st time as a local who was entertaining out of town guests who had never been to Chicago; other times I was a visitor before relocating to Chicago). the tour, history, views, and architectural details described were outstanding. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable, and tireless (that's a lot of talking in a short time!). Her energy and love of the city was contageous. She was a true ambassador to our fine city! This is one of the only "touristy" activities I recommend to visitors outside of our great museums.
