This was a great ride! Unfortunately, it was an overcast day and the water was very choppy so, the speedboat ride didn't go very fast. But the tour guides made the ride fun and informative. We still had a
awesome time and I would recommend this ride to anyone visiting Chicago. FYI, there is a 2 for 1 coupon
on the Hop On and Off Doubledecker bus tour brochure.
Great quick way to see they city from the lake. It was very windy when the boat was moving, so depending on the weather of your time of visit, dress accordingly. The tour guide was great, Fabio. I would highly recommend this ride.
