“Nick was a great tour guide. Very charismatic! The boat had a bar downstairs, and lots of seating upstairs. The sights were very nice, the views and photos came out beautiful. I would recommend avoiding the hottest parts of the day. Highly recommended.”Nancy V., Alhambra, California | Source: YELP August 14, 2016
“I live in Chicago and took family on the tour from the Michigan Ave dock. The tour was fun for me as a local and for senior family from out of state. Tour Guide (Jim) was entertaining and had the right balance of information and corny jokes. We went on a cloudy day, which was perfect because all the seating is exposed. The bar was a welcome surprise and there were 2 dogs people took on the tour—what else do you need?”Marsha E., Chicago, Illinois | Source: TripAdvisor August 26, 2016
“The Shoreline Architecture Tour on the historic Chicago River departing from Navy Pier ended up being a very interesting experience. Adam, our tour guide, did a terrific job with his presentation that was chalk full of information scripted on a very humorous and attention-grabbing way.”Glorialaviajera, LaVergne, Tennessee | Source: TripAdvisor August 27, 2016
“We booked the 75 minutes cruise which departed at 4:30 pm. While I have been on similar cruise before I was impressed by the knowledge of the tour guide, and enjoyed her witty comments. Overall an enjoyable trip the hot weather notwithstanding.”OzMaidencruiser, Sydney, Australia | Source: TripAdvisor August 28, 2016
