We picked this tour based on reviews and were quite pleased. They were friendly and very efficient about getting people through ticketing, boarding and disembarking quickly while emphasizing safety. They were ready to accommodate my limited mobility. The tour leader was funny and amazingly, the sound system let us hear every word-- not common on other tours we have taken. They quickly took pictures but there was no pressure to buy them our picture was very good, so we did. There was some difficulty finding and getting to the right dock but they had no control over that. We took a taxi but I don't think there was any parking around. The taxi turnout is great for getting people in and out quickly, so we would recommend you also come by taxi. We were lucky to have good weather for this tour in Oct. There is a point where you are out on the lake which got quite chilly, even on a balmy afternoon. Bring a jacket or otherwise dress slightly warmer than required in downtown Chicago, whenever you come. I don't know how this compares to other tours, but I highly recommend this one.
This was awesome! Super informative and definitely a different perspective of the city that you won't get just driving or walking around. Bring a jacket!
We had beautiful weather...a gorgeous City to see...the architecture is phenomenal. Every one was
courteous and our 10 year old Grandson listened to our guide and was entertained the whole trip.
We couldn't finish all the tours we had planned on taking. There is SO much to do i Chicago. Thank
you for this great City experience.
We were thrilled with the tour!! Everyone told us not to miss this tour, they were so right.
Everyone should go on this cruise when they are in Chicago!!!
Very well organized and the guide was quite knowledgeable about all aspects of the city's architecture and the persons behind the various buildings we saw. Highly recommend this tour great value for the price.
On time well rehearsed and knowledgeable guide. I was on the competitors tour....no comparison. This is MUCH better
This tour was amazing. I saw so much. I would recommend that anyone who has never been to Chicago to take this River tour Cruise because you will see a lot and it was well worth while. The young man that hosted the Architectural tour was very knowledgeable and that is what really made the tour so amazing. He deserves a promotion. I wish I could have remembered his name. I was very pleased. You will not be disappointed for going on this tour.
This was a great tour. Really got to learn about the city's architecture while enjoying a nice ride through the river. Highly recommend this.
Excellent tour guide who combined humor and history in his commentary. Interesting to see the beautiful Chicago architecture from the river side.
Worth every penny! Beautiful tour with a very well informed tour guide, we learned a lot. Highly recommended activity to do while in the windy city!
Enjoyed the tour. The guide was very informative and funny. Learned a lot about the different architecture styles and how they complimented and blended together.
If you have NOT been on the architectural tour you have missed a fantastic trip. I have lived in Chicago for 28 years and have just been on my first tour and I want to go on them more often! Our tour guide Jim was fantastic, very informative and learned so much about the city and its past and its architectural beauty. A must see for all tourist!!!
Great tour with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Glad we went.
We really enjoyed the cruise. The guide was very passionate about the architecture of Chicago and made it interesting.
I am hard of hearing and I had no trouble hearing the commentary on this trip. A very worthwhile experience. I went first of November and it was sunny and in the 50s but glad I had a couple of layers, plus jacket and hat. But, then, I am also from Texas.
The docent for the trip was a nonstop flurry of facts, anecdotes and historical tidbits from the time we took off to the time we docked. I have lived in Chicago for several years and taken an active interest in its history, but I came away with tons of information I didn't know before.
Splendid tour. I would reccomend it to anyone who hasn't been to Chicago.
Excellent. Presenter is very knowledgeable with a touch of funnys.
