If you are in Chicago, you must take this tour. It is excellent, and the guides are great. Me and my family enjoyed the ride, and benefited from the information.

Great tour guide. The only thing I did not enjoy was sitting in the hot sun waiting for the locks to open and close and the smell of diesel fuel.

We had a great time on this tour. We were celebrating my granddaughter's 10th birthday with a girl's weekend in Chicago. She loved the tour on Lake Michigan the best. My 2 daughters and I liked both tours. The tour guide was informative and friendly. I would advise this tour to anyone visiting Chicago.

Everything was great! We had the Girls' Rule boat with docent Grace who was terrific...extremely knowledgable and articulate and funny! My 8 year old granddaughter thought it was particularly special that the captain and first mate were also ladies. We would definitely do this again! Liz

Our younger son, who would not have had the patience for or the interest in the regular Architecture Foundation river tour, loved this tour - as did we. Our guide was very good - young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable - and was great with the guests. This tour is the right balance of excitement and information.

Wow, this was amazing. The tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable and informative, never a dull moment throughout the tour.
Once the tour turned into the speedboat part the guides on board took your photo using your camera which I have never known before and was a great thing for them to do.
Excellent value for money.

The tour was superb! Our guide Jake was very knowledgable and entertaining. His stories made the tour very enjoyable. The history behind the architectural evaolution of the city is very interesting. My husband and I loved the speed boat tour on the lake.

We had a young guy caled Jake (I think) who was our guide and boy was he good. Not your usual please look on your left anf that is the Willis Tower.. he really knew his stuff and was able to answer any question asked by the passengers. And he was extremely interesting and the short speedboat ride at the end finished off the tour in an exciting way. I would highly recommend this trip. Just note that there are lots of tours that leave from the Navy Pier... go to the Pier itself and this tour leave from directly opposite the ferris wheel... it was not clear enough on the voucher... Enjoy......
