“Literally best money spent in Chicago! I had an amazing time in the architecture tour and I learned so much. The boat ride was really enjoyable and it was a great way to spend a Sunday.”Ashley G., Hartford, CT | Source: YELP April 20, 2016
“I am obsessed with the architecture river tour!! I've been on it four times and I want to go again! I learn something new every single time and each time their tour guides are very informative and entertaining. If you book online, you can get cheaper tickets.”Steph U., Chicago, IL | Source: YELP April 27, 2016
“Came here with my family and a few family friends on our short 4-day trip to Chicago - our tour guide (Kevin) was cheerful, funny, and extremely entertaining. It was clear that he loved the city that he was presenting to us, and really ensured that we all had a great time for the 75-minute trip down the river. Really a good way to spend the 1 sunny day we had in Chicago!”Alice K., Campbell, CA | Source: YELP April 28, 2016
“Jimmy, the tour guide did a fabulous job explaining the types of architecture and culture of each. He explained the diversity on many levels which makes Chicago so unique...well worth the value!”Susan P., Bryson City, North Carolina | Source: TripAdvisor April 2016
“What a great history and tour of the Chicago River & its architecture. We were on a business trip and this was the only sightseeing we did- perfect choice.”AngieFritzNichols, North Fort Myers, Florida | Source: TripAdvisor April 2016
“Took the Chicago Architecture river tour; what a blast. This tour is very interesting and the guide has a thorough knowledge of the building types, architects and the history behind the buildings. The boat itself offers wood bench for seating with plenty of room to stretch your legs. Of course there is a restroom on board too. I will take the tour again next time I am in Chicago as the ownership of the buildings changes and the new construction is always interesting.”Kerrycorcoran, Lincoln, Nebraska | Source: TripAdvisor April 2016
