As a life long Chicagoan (including suburbs) we have been talking about an architectural tour for at least the last 7 years. We finally did it and were really glad. The tour had beautiful views from the water and it was the first time I had ever been on the south branch of the river. The weather was great. Our guide was superb. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable and helped us understand a lot of the history of Chicago and its architecture. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend the time to be entertained and enlightened and see Chicago downtown from a completely different perspective.
Fabulous architecture tour! The guide was great, the staff were professional and the scenery was exquisite! We loved it! A great deal for the money.
This was the highlight of a perfect 4 day trip to Chicago. Our guide Victor was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He guided us up the river and down the north and south branches describing every building and it's history and drew a picture and story about the building of Chicago that was unforgettable.
This tour started at the Navy Pier which is undergoing renovation but we went to the Stained glass museum there and I highly recommend that as well, extraordinary collection.
This tour is highly recommendee. The guide was very well informed and did not feel the necessity to be amusing, thank goodness! The architecture speaks for itself.
It was a great tour, Kevin the tour guide was a hoot and knew a lot about the architecture of Chicago! This is the best way to really see the windy city!
Very enjoyable. Guide knew his stuff and was humorous. A comfortable tour.
This is a must do for everyone, whether you live in the city or are just visiting. There isn't a better or more scenic way to see the amazing architecture then by boat. Our guide, Kevin, was FABULOUS! Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but incredibly talented- he sang, rapped, played the harmonica! I highly suggest booking a boat that he is on- he will make the trip that much better! We can't wait to come back to the city and take the tour again!
This was a beautiful tour. Views at this level were quite incredible. I would highly recommend this longer tour later in the day when feet have had enough walking!!
