What people are saying about Chicago

Really enjoyed the whole experience, especially Steve!

I would encourage anyone to go on this tour. It was wonderful, informative, educational, and lots of fun. The entire staff on our boat was very helpful and just so enjoyable!

Wonderful river tour of a beautiful city

Everything went perfectly. Comfortable seats. Boarding was easy. Tour guide was good. Staff was attentive. Easy to find the boarding location. Bathrooms on boat were large and clean. We went at dusk just as the buildings were being lit up and that was a great time to go. Just a wonderful experience.

Nick was engaging and interesting for a fascinating cruise!

My daughter is an interior designer, and chose this event. It was a fascinating combination of history of both Chicago and architectural history. Great tidbits of culture. Nick was a great guide, did a great job, taking time to answer individual questions, while alerting us to prime photo ops. We came away with a much greater appreciation of Chicago which reverberated for our whole visit.

Not wind, rain or cold kept our tour guide from doing an amazing job!

I had taken the tour years ago and so wanted my family to take it also. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold, windy and rainy for mid April. Fortunately, we were dressed for the inclement weather. Just as fortunate, our tour guide was wonderful. He did not allow the weather to prevent sharing all the history of the Chicago architecture. We all thoroughly enjoyed the ride including our 10 and 11 year old granddaughters! One of our family members was not able to join us as he become quite ill. I was told I would be able to get my money returned after the tour. If you could let me know how I go about doing that I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Fantastic cruise with a passionate and knowledgeable guide

Our tour guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about the architecture of key buildings in the city and even had images of proposed and approved new buildings on key sites. So interesting. I'd highly recommend the architecture cruise.
