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......

This was such a good tour! We had Jaime as our tour guide and he did a fantastic job combining personality and knowledge of the city. Even if you have lived in the city for years I highly recommend this to everyone!

We booked the Lake Michigan and Chicago River Architecture Cruise by Speedboat and were not disappointed. It was great fun, very interesting and value for money. Jake was our tour guide for the trip. He was funny and knowledgable. Wear something warm as it can be very cold on the Lake! Another trip we would recommend is the Untouchable's Bus Tour.

The boat trip into the centre of the city on the Chicago River was superb, but the speedboat trip onto Lake Michigan was excellent--we enjoyed the whole day at Navy Pier.

The tour was fun, exciting and beautiful. It gave us a view of Chicago that we would have not seen so up close and personal by car. Our tour guide, Jake, was informative without being boring. We had a great time and highly recommend it to everyone.

Jake was our tour guide, very knowledgable guy. Would recommend this. Unfortunately we booked online but saw in the Chicago map you can pick up from the tourist info office that you can get 2 for the price of one. It was a hot day so bring water. Nice touch they gave us a bottle of water, which helped!
