We had a fabulous time!! A must for everyone interested in history and architecture. One tip would be to wear a hat...you are in full sun on a sunny day, of course
Amazing tour! I never thought I'd be interested much in architecture, but it was fascinating and very well presented!
I recommend taking the cruise when the sun is starting to set I took mine at 7:15 in the July. It was absolutely beautiful and our tour guide was hilarious and knowledgable. I will be doing the cruise again on another visit to Chicago.
Alcohol is available on the river cruise, but since I bought my ticket online I didn't know about this. I then had to hop out of line to go purchase a ticket to get a drink. I'm still confused to why that had to be done but it was super painless nonetheless.
Was very interesting and informative. Was a great way to see and understand the city and it's layout. Helped us decide where and what we wanted to do for the rest of our trip. Totally worth the price.
Great experience and a wonderful way to spend a HOT afternoon. The guide was fantastic!
What an informational and entertaining experience. I have lived in the south suburbs all my life and worked in the city for 20 years and this was the first time we gone on the Chicago River. We had a wonderful time and Kevin was the best.
Our company took several guests on the Chicago Architecture River Cruise on a Friday evening. It was the best decision we made with regard to entertaining out of town business associates. This cruise is best in the evening 8:15 pm in the summer. The buildings were all lit up and it was very informative and entertaining. I would recommend dinner earlier at a fine restaurant, followed by this cruise as opposed to the larger dinner cruises, where the food is not all that great!

Great way to see and learn about Chicago! Went on the 7:30 PM tour and thought that was the perfect time - great lighting and temperature. The tour guide was excellent, as well.
Great, left on time, good information although a little more history would have been nice but over all great.

Our tour guide, Kevin, kept the tour interesting and informative with his non-stop commentary. We saw all of the famous skyscrapers and learned so much about how they came to be. There are various Shoreline ships at Navy Pier. Be sure to find the tour at the southwest corner prior to entering Navy Pier. If you Uber, get off at the park rather than at the Navy Pier Uber drop off location.
Beautiful night to be cruising! Loved the experience. Tour guide was informative and kept the attention of all passengers with his engaging manner. Learned many details of architecture and history of Chicago. Highly recommend.
Have been coming to Chicago regularly for 50 years, but this was a wonderful new way to see this amazing city!! The guide was very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend this!!
Overall fantastic tour. We were informed by many people both local and out of towners, that it was a must do in our first time visiting Chicago. We learned a lot from our tour guy Jim. Lots of incredible history and architecture. Highly recommend.
You an speed up the line on a hot day by offering a bypass for those who do not want their picture taken.
This was the perfect experience for our first time in Chicago! We loved it!
We enjoyed the river cruise on a perfect 74 degree afternoon with an extremely knowledgeable guide.
The views of one after another stunning, splendid examples of architectural/engineering genius and the
very interesting stories of Chicago's history made the trip special.
This was an amazing cruise! Ben was a very good, knowledgeable tour guide!!
The Architecture Cruise was awesome. The boat was immaculate, had bar service and was well organized. Our 'guide' Ben was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable of the City, buildings, and history and did a great job presenting it to the passengers. Our group of 8 would highly recommend this trip and Ben.
i went with my daughter and truly had the best time, although my budget wasn't the best and couldn't see everything I wanted I must say that I will be back, the people are very friendly and the culture is rich and diverse, simply marvelous all around!! this was my first time and there will be many more!!!
