This was our 2nd time on this boat and once again it was fabulous. We had children visiting and they had a blast! The day was perfect and so was the guide on board. Once again an exciting experience! We will definitely do this again!

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.

Our teenage grandchildren enjoyed the ride immensely, especially getting wet.
The confirmation process required an email when I called after arriving in Chicago. I left a phone message because we didn't have internet access with us. Fortunately when we arrived for our ride the boat was not full so we got on as Walk on's" since they could not find our reservation.

The speedboat ride was wonderful! However, this site makes you believe that you are getting a discount but when you arrive at the ticket booth to pick up your tickets you will find that you have over paid by 2.00 person!!

Note from Viator: When you book with Viator, you will never pay more online or at your destination. Read our low price guarantee and, if you find a lower price anywhere, let us know about it!

Very good, informative and entertaining and it would have been lovely to get that refreshing cool rush of wind in my hair if I had any left..... Definitely recommended.

Interesting commentary while on the boat. Not much time was spent on the lake but it was raining. It was interesting sailing through the city on the inlet and cruising under all the bridges and I learnt a lot about the city buildings. It is worth doing if you are new to the city. It was cold but I'm sure on a warm day it would be more fun.

Informative and entertaining. And while I knew it was just a half hour going into it, a half hour is just too short!

3 star rating: Worth doing

We miss the boat ride due to our reservation could not be found and I did not have a reference number to call. We barely made it to the pier but after 30 minutes of going back and forth in and out of the line with the attendant about who the reservation should have been booked through and why it could not be found, we finally got a Viator phone number to call. Once on the line with viator, the reservation could not be found. Eventually the reservation was found but this was another 20 minutes. Needless to say, we missed the boat. So there you go. I do not have a review for the boat ride itself. Viator services is another story.
