Catch the ride at Navy Pier so you can fully experience entering the Chicago River from Lake Michigan! Narration of the skyscrapers along the river is excellent! Ride is about 75 minutes long and an excellent photo opportunity from the river upward.Susan R., Reno, NV | Source: TripAdvisor 5/26/15
We took the architecture cruise this afternoon,…Patrick was our guide and he was knowledgeable, entertaining, and friendly. We learned so much about Chicago in 75 minutes and highly recommend this tour!Susan K., Henderson, NV | Source: Yelp 5/28/15
This is a must when visiting Chicago. The weather was awesome, and the boat we were on was nice with an open top. I say walk on board, order a drink, and take in the tour. It's amazing to see all the buildings in Chicago from the river. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He had a story for every building and there seemed to be something new to see every five minutes. I appreciated learning about the history of Chicago.Lisa C., Minneapolis, MN | Source: Yelp 6/2/15
We took the architecture tour from Michigan Ave and the lake tour from Navy Pier. Both were fantastic. Learned a lot and got tons of great pictures.Andrew-T-McD, Houston, TX | Source: TripAdvisor 6/11/15
This was by far, one of the best tours I have done anywhere in the US. I have to preface this by saying, "I hate tours!” BUT, I loved this one. The tour is just the right length, the sights are so interesting, the tour guides are funny, smart and full of interesting details. Our guide was David, a high school history teacher on hiatus. He truly knew his stuff and kept us engaged for the entire tour.JBHAtlanta, Atlanta, GA | Source: TripAdvisor 6/20/15
