My hopes for a nice day faded as it was very foggy. Very foggy. You couldn't see the back of the boat. But the crew and guide rose to the occasion and as the trip progressed the fog lifted and by the time we got to the Sears tower, you could see all of it. Kevin was a terrific guide and very knowledgeable about Chicago history and folklore. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend it highly, and don't be discouraged by poor visibility.

Although a beautiful sunny day quickly changed to overcast and eventual light rain, this was a wonderful trip. We debarked from Navy Pier and went up the Chicago R. to see major structures and buildings in the downtown area. A very knowledgeable docent presented an almost non-stop, 70-minute program about Chicago , the river, the bridges, the buildings and the historic figures that have made this city great. Although I knew a lot of the information beforehand, there were many anecdotes and historical interjections that were new to me. Anything omitted was largely due to time constraints. Although I was born in Chicago and have always felt quite at home there, this was my first visit in almost 20 years and I learned much. Anyone who comes to Chicago and doesn't take advantage of this cruise is literally missing the boat.

If you're looking to get to know the City of Chicago, I'd definitely recommend this tour. It was my mom and I's first day in Chicago, and I've never been here before. I came across this tour and thought we'd go. I'm so glad we did. They talked about the city's beginnings and architecture. It was love at first sight. I love the City of Chicago. Though we took the 10am tour, it was quite cold, but if you bundle up, you should be fine. Anywhere you sit on the tour, you'll still get an amazing view of the city. And the workers are so polite and accommodating.
