Beautiful day, comfortable open air boat, Very knowledgable speaker, and beautiful Chicago buildings! Great and well worth the price. Diana and Kelly
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I think what really made the trip was the guide, I wish I could remember his name. He was of course very knowledgeable, but beyond that was quite entertaining. Would definitely recommend it!
I look my 80 year old handicapped mother. This tour was the highlight of her trip. The accessibility of the boat along with the friendly and helpful guides made this trip a dream come true for her bucket list. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. She couldn't wait to get home to tell her family and friends.
Fantastic content, delivery of information and accommodating crew it was an uncharacteristically cold morning and one of the deckhands offered up his sweater when my husband asked the bartender for a hot beverage for me. Above and beyond!
Very comfortable, informative and fun! The drinks were strong and amazingly priced!
The speaker/tour guide was fabulous. A non-stop narrative with stories, song and music. He made the buildings come alive. Not to be missed.
This was a wonderful tour to see the amazing architecture of the windy city! Victor, our tour guide, made this tour amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable of all the architecture, new, old, and upcoming. You could tell even after 14 years he was passionate about it, and loved what he did. Great tour, great tour guide.
This is a must-do in Chicago. We learned so much about the history and architecture of this great city. After the tour, everywhere we walked we looked at the buildings with new appreciation and marveled in its magnitude. There is a lot of intentional building in Chicago and it makes this city outstanding.
The special excitement of the day was that the river was at an historic high, so many of the usual boats, such as the one in this photo, were unable to get under the bridges. Not ours though! It was a single decker w/ no one allowed to sit behind the captain in the wheel house above.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the architecture. Adults thoroughly enjoyed it, but subject a bit over the heads and interests of the younger kids. Perhaps you could feature a different type of river cruise for younger kids- one w/ more of a Crocodile Dundee type of guide? Make it clear on your choices of river tours which one would be more entertaining, engaging for them.
One of the best stops on our trip. The guide was fantastic and really made the history of the buildings come alive for our whole group. Great day on the river. Highly recommend this tour to all that want to learn more about Chicago and its history.
This is the first time I have been on a tour of Chicago and I must say that this was ABSOLUTELY a great way to see the amazing city. I was in awe of how many of the buildings we could see from the river. Our entire family including an 8 year old boy, 10 year old boy, and my parents all left the tour talking about how great it was. Our tour guide was not only amazingly knowledgeable about the city and all of the buildings, he also provided a lot of great history about the city. He was also very entertaining, singing songs and keeping the tour very interesting. I would absolutely recommend this as the must thing to do in Chicago. We saw many of the other sites while visiting, but this was definitely our favorite thing.
Our guide was great, and we enjoyed this trip! My son who lives in Chicago went with us, and he has decided to book this tour for friends who come to visit.
My husband, 15 year old son and I had a wonderful time on this tour. It's a great introduction to Chicago's architecture!
