“This is one tour that I suggest all tourists as well as locals do because you can really appreciate the architecture and beautiful river of Chicago more after taking this ride. Although one might agree that NY and Chicago are somewhat similar as for the skyline and such BUT Chicago definitely takes the cake for the most beautiful architecture I have ever seen.”Janine K. | East Elmhurst, NY | Source: Yelp July 8, 2017
“We booked the architectural tour (with fireworks on the actual 4th) out of Michigan Avenue and Ben was our tour guide. It was amazing and informative - husband and I loved it and both of our kids (16 and 10) had a great time, too. Ben was an excellent and funny tour guide. I would highly recommend this excursion - worth every penny.”Robin H. | Waco, TX | Source: Yelp July 4, 2017
“Great way to see and learn about all the beauty and history in Chicago. Sit near back in the shade on hot days......All employees were friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this.”Stacy L. | Lawrenceburg, IN | Source: Yelp July 8, 2017
“My two teenage boys loved this evening river tour. They were fascinated with the narrative and beauty of the buildings. It was an awesome family experience and memory maker!! Plus, the fireworks at the end were a perfect finishing touch. Loved it!”Tina F. | Hastings, Minnesota | Source: TripAdvisor July 2017
“We took 2 water tours in Chicago- the best was the shoreline architect tour!! Guide "JIM" had many facts about Chicago, building designs, different styles etc He mixed it with humor and cheerfulness. Seemed to enjoy his job and took it serious. I'd recommend this tour anytime!!”CRNA9606 | Source: TripAdvisor July 2017
“Took this tour from the Michigan Ave departure on July 4, 2017. Our guide, Bill Field, conveyed an incredible amount of information about the buildings and history of Chicago. The boat went up and down three branches of the river. It was a wide, open air boat so the views were spectacular....”Bonebee | Gainesville, Georgia | Source: TripAdvisor July 2017
