"WOW! This tour was FANTASTIC!! JJ our guide was funny, smart and engaging. We went on Friday 10/13 - and the weather was ideal. Sunny and warm. 75 minutes of Chicago history, architecture styles, personalities."
"So many people I met on my trip told me I couldn't miss this cruise. I'm so glad I listened to them! Bought tickets for a Friday 6pm cruise leaving from Michigan Ave easily online. Jaelyn needs his own TV show! Very bright and engaging young man that fascinated all of us with facts and stories about Chicago's most iconic buildings."
"Awesome tour with Nick. Very informative and fun. They kept the 75-minute tour entertaining and allowed everyone a chance to get some good photos."
"We took the 75-minute Architectural Tour along the Chicago River with Victor as a tour guide. The weather was superb and the tour magnificent. Victor was a treasure trove of information of the beautiful buildings of Chicago."
"Great and informative architectural tour. Wendy was great! It helps to have beautiful weather too. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants an awesome river tour of Chicago!"
