During November 2017 we had a wonderful experience while on the Chicago Architectural River Cruise. It was a thoroughly absorbing and entertaining tour. We learned a great deal about the history of Chicago and its extraordinary architecture. The facilities on board were very good and our guide was a delightful woman whose knowledge and expertise were delivered to us in a most entertaining and interesting way. We would thoroughly recommend the Chicago Architectural River Cruise.

It is once of a life time experience on the Chicago River cruise. The tour was informative and breathtaking as you see all the views that walking on land couldn't give so relaxing and stress free. We took the cruise on a beautiful summer sunny day. The guide was knowledgeable of the history surrounding the area and all the famous buildings that have stood up against time reflecting the architectural beauty and importance to the community. We are a city people and this is a must if you are one of those kinds, but I'm sure it will be enjoyed by anyone.

My companion and I were in Chicago late September and took the 4pm 90 minute architectural river cruise. The weather was perfect and our guide was very knowledgeable about the buildings and history of the city. We had a wonderful time! FYI - arrive at least 30 minutes early so you can find seats on the upper deck. We sat below, which was fine, but at times the upper deck overhang obstructed our view.

The tour was Chicago from the water, with a very knowledgeable guide explaining what we were seeing. All the seats were good, although getting to the venue at least 30 minutes early insures you get the seat you want. However, I would not want to take this tour in bad weather.

As a first timer to Chicago, this river cruise was excellent. Beginning with the receptionist at the ticket office who was very welcoming and efficient. The ticket office facilities very good. The cruise guide was very informative and experienced as with the rest of the crew. The trip along both the North and South sides of the city was just the ticket for this short visit. The only down side was the weather.

We were very pleased with the tour and guide. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about Chicago and the amazing architecture. Walking by these buildings and then seeing them from the boat gave us a deep appreciation of this lovely city.

Well worthwhile. Not a bad seat on the boat. Great view of the city. Our guide was knowledgeable but talked way too fast thus making her hard to follow at times.

Great! Lots of very interesting details. This was a smaller tour in comparison to some of the other tours you see on the river, which made for a better experience, in my opinion. The area where we docked the boat was beautiful.

Couldn't say anything more. The captain was very nice, tour guide was entertaining but very informative. Definitely a great price for the 90 minute experience!

Finding the dock was easy enough and we were on board and ready to go. We left on time so, if you want to do this tour, be prompt as they don't wait. As soon as we were off, a woman gave the tour rapidly talking of the buildings as we boated through the canals. I'm sure she had to obviously as there was building after building to talk about on both sides of the canal with some more interesting that others. It was fun. They have water/juice and cookies on board. Cookies were the soft kind...pablum.

The museum of science and industry was amazing and so educational. Hamilton was a great show and the Villages Italian restaurant served excellent thin crust pizza. Finally, the Architectural Boat tour is a must see.

Very informative and fun. Unluckily there were times when we could not hear what the professional tour guide was saying even though we were in the front row and he had a microphone due to extremely rude people who loudly talked non stop behind us. But the day was beautiful and we did learn a lot of interesting things about Chicago architecture we did not know. Well worth the trip

This is a comfortable and interesting way to see the river view of Chicago. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining on the tour. Architectural changes over the decades are pointed out and explained along the tour. It is like traveling back in time! There is not a bad seat on the boat.
