“…Our tour guide was great and gave a lot of knowledge and history of the city of Chicago and the buildings along the river. The boat offers upper and lower deck seating and if weather permits, I'd suggest sitting on the top deck for optimal views and for pictures!! Chicago has such a neat history and the buildings are amazing too…”Michelle M. | Aliso Viejo, CA | Source: Yelp February 13, 2017
“VICTOR our tour guide was FABULOUS! He knows is stuff and I ended our tour feeling like I became friends with many of Chicago’s most beautiful buildings. Each has a colorful story to tell. Thank you Victor!”Yvette S. | San Francisco, CA | Source: Yelp March 4, 2017
“Blessed with a 60 degree plus day in Chicago in February, we really enjoyed your guide Jim's insightful and witty 75 minute architectural river cruise. Learning about the history of Chicago and the evolution of its extraordinary architecture, while seeing it all from the water, is an experience anyone can appreciate. Just do it!”NewportPam | Newport Beach, CA | Source: TripAdvisor February 2017
“This was our first activity on our first day in Chicago! It was a great kick off to our week of sightseeing. We heard some history, saw some of the prominent buildings that make up the Chicago skyline and got our bearings for the week ahead. Highly recommend!”Lisa H. | Omaha, Nebraska Source: TripAdvisor February, 2017
“…Our guide was Jim—he was fantastic! The boat captain did a wonderful job navigating through the South and North Chicago River branches… Jim's knowledge and history about the architects, details in planning, and future development of the city's buildings made for a truly educational experience. I would highly recommend this tour!”LovesDoorCounty | Lake in the Hills, Illinois | Source: TripAdvisor February 20, 2017
