I wish I hadn't spent the money for this tour. In all honesty the tour of lake was just ok but not very impressive after taking the sunset river tour the previous night. I thought the river tour would be only in the river but it also went out into the lake. There is no tour more impressive than the Chicago skyline at sunset or at night. If you are going to spend the money for boat tours, I suggest Wendella's Sunset Cruise.

This was a beautiful cruise around a small section of the lake. Great views of Chicago and the Navy Pier. Fantastic photo opportunities. I would have liked to have gone further out into Lake Michigan.

We had a fun time on the cruise. The kids did not fall asleep and the view was beautiful. Our guide was not bad but could make the history more fun with interesting stories even the kids could enjoy. The kids ages range from 15 to 5 so it is a large age gap.

This was the worst cruise tour ever. The crew did not stop all the kids running wild. Twice We were afraid that small children could fall over board. We moved 4 times to avoid the noise. We could not hear the speaker describe the shoreline buildings. We filed a written complaint with the manage
