“I did this same boat tour about ten years ago and did it again this weekend while in Chicago.... It's a very cool architecture tour. Our tour guide was Rachel and she knew her facts very well. It was informative and something unique. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago.”Jessica C. | Raleigh, North Carolina | Source: Yelp June 6, 2017
“The architectural river tour is a MUST DO in Chicago! It is a 75 minute ride where you get to see all the beautiful cityscape and learn so much about the major architects and buildings (and bridges) that make Chicago such an amazing city. Great for all ages! Our guide was Kevin and he was so knowledgeable, funny and ended the tour with a fantastic jazz harmonica performance. ...”Trish A. | South Haven, Michigan | Source: Yelp June 7, 2017
“We took the Architecture Tour and loved every minute. Bridget was a fantastic tour guide. She delivered at least an hour of enthusiastic and accurate architectural insight with enthusiasm, humor, and even drama. She mixed in just the right amount of scandal, tragedy, and connections to make the evolution of Chicago come alive!”Linda W. | Raleigh, North Carolina | Source: Yelp June 8, 2017
“Victor, our guide for our Chicago river architectural tour did an amazing job. It was evident he loved architecture and that showed his enthusiasm and fountain of knowledge. We were just looking for a pleasant way to kill a few hours in Chicago but we were really impressed. I’d done another architecture cruise of the river a couple of years ago, and this was 10x better.”stuartBloomington | Bloomington, Indiana | Source: TripAdvisor June 2017
“Our tour guide, Ash, really did a nice job talking about all the architecture we saw on this cruise on the Chicago River. He did a great job explaining the history and the type of architecture we were seeing. I highly recommend doing this!”Hart6 | Source: TripAdvisor June 2017

The 75 minute tour was a perfect way to see all the architecture throughout Chicago with excellent narrative and storytelling from our guide, Jim...”QJ_Lew | Katonah, New York | Source: TripAdvisor June 2017
