“What a great tour! Becky was our tour guide and she is fabulous. She is so well educated about the architecture and the river. She shared so much knowledge while keeping it interesting. The whole family really enjoyed it, and would recommend Shoreline to anyone.”Danette G., California | Source: YELP July 19, 2016
“I've done the architectural boat tour at least four times... I love it! Great tour to take my out of town guests on. The skyline and views are AMAZING. Wednesday and Saturdays with fireworks are totally worth it as well. Heather was the tour guide tonight. Very knowledgeable and entertaining! Never disappointed.”Kaitlin P., Chicago, IL | Source: YELP July 24, 2016
“Jim was an awesome tour guide! He was very funny and had great stories to make architecture interesting to all ages. Jim also recommended neighborhoods, restaurants, and things to do in the city! Would definitely do this tour again!”Rachel H., East Peoria, IL | Source: YELP July 22, 2016
“An absolute Delight! Our tour guide was a fun and knowledge guy who was absolutely entertaining. We had a great time on the boat. This is a must visit attraction and absolutely great on the value for money front. The Architecture Cruise should definitely not be missed.”123MmJj123, Mumbai (Bombay), India | Source: TripAdvisor July 27, 2016
“We took the 10.45 a.m. tour and Victor was our tour guide. It was a big boat with plenty of space and a reasonably priced bar. The tour is a great way of seeing all the beautiful buildings and hearing about their history and design. Victor knew his stuff but also made it fun and interesting. I am so glad we did this tour as it is a great way to learn about this beautiful city.”A K L, Nottingham, United Kingdom | Source: TripAdvisor July 16, 2016
“This tour was absolutely the best! It really was one of the highlights of our Chicago trip. I wish I remembered the name of our guide. She was so nice, knowledgeable and informative. We loved the tour. Got us few beers at the bar, we went around 6.30 which was beautiful just when the sun was going down. I would definitely go again and recommend! Awesome job!”ZuJa13, Key West, Florida | Source: TripAdvisor July 27, 2016
