“This was the best 75 minutes covering Chicago Downtown. Our guide was Nick and he was just perfect. The tour is very informative and worth the $35. The cruise runs every half an hour and there is plenty of room on board and light refreshments available.”NUPUR J, London, UK | Source: TripAdvisor October 3, 2016
“Ben was a great speaker, with education, humor, and precision. A continuously changing scene that required dates, names of architects, relations to other world events didn't seem to faze him…I'd recommend the sunset cruise as you get to see the sunset and the lights of the city. Don't miss it.”skiNebraska, Kearney, NE | Source: TripAdvisor October 7, 2016
“...We took the 5:45 pm cruise which takes you down the Chicago River through the city, and gives you the best view possible of the beautiful buildings and canal ways. I'm so glad we went at this time of day, as the lighting was gorgeous during the sunset. Definitely take a jacket, but don't miss out on this beautiful tour. My 12 and 14 year old loved it as much as we did, and kept thanking us for taking them...”Nancy J., Rio Rancho, NM | Source: Yelp October 8, 2016
“Nothing short of spectacular from Victor and his coconspirators!! I live in Chicago and this is probably my 11th or 12th tour. I just love our City and it was great to meet another person more passionate about urban architecture and history than I am…For Chicagoans and visitors alike Architectural River boat tour is unforgettable experience especially with Victor!! Thank you for a great afternoon.”Hanna P., Bloomingdale, IL | Source: Yelp October 9, 2016
“Hands down there is no better way to learn about the history, culture, and architecture of Chicago than to spend 75 minutes with Jim as your guide aboard the Shoreline Architecture River Cruise.”Don C., Traverse City, MI | Source: Yelp October 10, 2016
“Our last tourist stop on our weekend trip to Chicago, and what a great way to spend our last 75 minutes. Our guide Rachel was informative, witty, and seemed genuinely excited share the beauty of her city. It gave us a deeper appreciation for both architecture and Chicago. Highly recommend!”Jennifer B., Calgary, Alberta, Canada | Source: TripAdvisor October 17, 2016
