"So Me & The Hubby Came here for our Honeymoon & so far it's been amazing Victor Was our tour guy on the boat & hands down he was beyond wonderful & funny"
"This sightseeing cruise was a great way to start our 3 day weekend getaway! JP was a fantastic and enthusiastic tour guide. Great tidbits of Chicago history. Kudos to Felipe for most excellent bloody marys! Loved it!!"
"What a wonderful experience. We took the sightseeing tour and we were impressed by our guide and how knowledgeable he was. We think this tour showed us beautiful Chicago perfectly!"
"Well worth the money for this interesting and informative architectural river tour we took on a Saturday at 5:00. The guide provided great facts and fun stories along the way in a microphone, so everyone could hear. We would definitely recommend this to tourists and Chicagoans alike to learn more about the city."
"Awesome tour. The city where the skyscraper was born has a real life timeline of skyscrapers from the 1920s up to the current date, always pushing the latest engineering innovations. This tour was great because we had an awesome guide in Kyle. He is a teacher and it showed by his passion to remember history so well. Master story teller. We highly recommend this tour."
