I am a Chicago native. I walk around downtown everyday to go to work, and this tour has given me a totally new perspective on the city. Thanks in huge part to Victor! He was such a fountain of interesting information—from the buildings themselves to the space in between. Amazing tour. I'm definitely now looking up.Anna P., Chicago, Illinois | Source: Yelp 11/6/2014

In Chicago for a few nights with grown-up family members, we were delighted when one of our sons booked us on this tour. We had a great insight into the layout of the city, its history and some of its most striking and interesting buildings—of which there are many. Our guide was well-informed and amusing, without being silly. A really worthwhile trip.Iain M., Great Malvern, United Kingdom | Source: Trip Advisor 11/1/2014

This is a first class tour! It is a great way to see Chicago and to learn about the various buildings on the riverside. Our guide, Javier, was very knowledgeable and delivered the commentary in an entertaining way which made the trip most enjoyable. The boat was clean and the staff members were all very courteous. A must-do when visiting Chicago!Alison083, Arbroath, Scotland | Source: Trip Advisor 10/30/2014
