What people are saying about Chicago

Sparkling Presentation of Architectural Gems in Chicago

The tour was very well organized and informative. The boat was spacious and comfortable but the real 5 star rating of the tour belongs our guide, Jake. He was polished yet wittily entertaining and so knowledgeable not only about the history of the buildings but also about the construction techniques and what each building contributed historically to the shaping of Chicago's cityscape. He gave us an excellent experience, one that we heartily endorse to anyone seeking to understand how the architecture and strategic city planning has informed the city of Chicago.

Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy history.

Our tour guide's name was Kevin, and he was, in a single word, fantastic! Not only did he know the subject very well, he had the perfect personality to be providing the history of the architecture of Chicago. He had so much information, that we were not able to retain it all! And he presented it in a very engaging way, that kept everyone interested. Our entire group of 10 people loved the tour, and Kevin's knowledge. Great tour.

Wonderfully unexpected. Fantastic educational experience!

Our guide David was personable, intelligent and highly knowledgeable. The entire crew was professional, fun and well trained. Make sure you enjoy this cruise on your visit to Chicago, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks to everyone for showing us your beautiful city.

Good for getting an overview of the downtown Chicago area

Our guide Rick was entertaining and knowledgeable. Also accommodating- let us change our tour time for earlier in the day. Found it helpful to get us familiar with the area, which we returned to the next day. Very limited stops- more of a drive by kind of tour.

Views were terrific and tour guide was excellent

We took the last tour at 7:30 pm (end of July) so we could see the river in the day and with lights on. Both views were wonderful; glad we did it. Our tour guide really knew his facts , but also had a nice sense of humor. Highly recommend!
