Took the Architecture Tour on a recent weekend trip to Chicago - it was fantastic! The tour guide (Heather) was knowledge and personable and provided interesting information about the architecture of the city. A very enjoyable 1.5 hours.10Mike1984, Toronto, Canada | Source: TripAdvisor 9/17/15
We took my MIL on the architectural tour during our day trip to Chicago due to her having difficulty walking distances. This tour did not disappoint! We even went past the Willis tower. We all walked away satisfied; even my 10 year old loved it! I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to appreciate the architecture or city history.Alisha H., Grand Rapids, MI | Source: TripAdvisor 9/17/15
Being Tourist in Chicago! Great way to tour the city's architecture! Ben was a great guide; informative and his dry rumor was on point. Had the best time! Highly recommend this for anyone wanting to see all the architecture that the city has to offer. Easy to get to, nice and cool. Great way to end of day of walking.Rose D., Converse, TX | Source: Yelp 9/17/2015
Outstanding overview to viewing some of the best architecture of the city of Chicago. Interesting, entertaining and informative. Whether a tourist or a Chicago native, this is a highly recommended way to spend one and a quarter hours. Lived here my entire life and still learned something about the great city of Chicago. Nick from Shoreline was fantastic!!Jeff B., Chicago, IL | Source: TripAdvisor 9/13/15
We did the night Architecture Cruise and it was AMAZING. Our favorite thing we did in Chicago. Gorgeous views and gives you a new appreciation for the buildings in the city. Jim was our tour guide and he was AWESOME! He was the perfect mix of entertaining and informative.Bailey G., Grapevine, TX | Source: Yelp 9/7/2015
Jim out tour guide was fantastic! My boyfriend and I (from NYC and Boston) really enjoyed learning about the architecture of this new city. Jim's passion was awesome and he is a great public speaker! The boat has a bar with a friendly bartender too! We stopped and asked Jim about his recommendations of what to do on our trip after the cruise and he was very helpful!Jessica P., Manhattan, NY | Source: Yelp 9/2/15
