The Architecture River Cruise was recommended by a friend, and I absolutely endorse their recommendation. Our docent was Kevin, who was fantastic! He guided us through an engaging history of the city, architecture and folk lore. Don't miss it - one of the best.

Excellent tour. Met our high expectations. The guide had both architectural creds and a lively sense of humor.

Almost didn't go due to dull, wet weather but did and the river cruise was fantastic. So facinating to see Chicago and its buildings from the river and the commentary was first class. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chicago.

In our opinion, the Architecture Tour is a "must-do" when in Chicago. We had the best time. The weather was lousy, it was cold and there was a school bus load of kids on our tour so our expectations were not as high as they may have been otherwise. But despite all the negative components to the day , I cannot imagine a better experience. Our guide was fantastic! He completely captivated everyone on board including what had been a rowdy bunch of middle schoolers. We would highly recommend this tour. Great! Great! Great.

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!
