Great guide, wonderful views of Chicago. It was a lot of fun. The boat had everything you need for a couple hours. We took seats up front and got the added treat of lake spray.

This tour was great! We two teens and two seniors went on the 6:15 p..m. tour and saw the skyline as it changed from day to evening. The tour guide was wonderful she kept us intertained with interesting stories about the city and the sites we viewed. One of our group was visiting from Spain and she took so many pictures that we thought her phone might run out of memory. My husband and I have lived in Chicago our entire lives, but even so we learned several new tidbits about our city from the tour guide. The other teen also enjoyed the trip. If you book this trip you won't be disappointed. As a reminder give the tour guide a tip for a job well done we didn't see others doing so, and were dismayed by this as the young lady did an outstanding job: she was entertaining as well as informative

The 90-min. cruise was everything we had hoped it would be. Our small group of 6, from ages 10 to 86, had a perfectly delightful time. Weather wasn't ideal, but did not dampen the adventure. Narrator was great!
