Despite the cold this was a fantastic hour spent learning the history of Chicago through the architecture. The guide didn’t stop talking for the hour and was very knowledgeable. Do not miss this when in Chicago.
We lucked out that there was a break in the rain and we got a tour. It was a relatively clear Sunday morning and a full top deck on the boat. We had a friendly greeting and found the seats dry and clean. We sat...More
Our first visit to Chicago Thanksgiving weekend. Yes it was cold above deck but this tour was so worth it. We were quite lucky to have a very talented and informative tour guide during our cruise. Entire experience was organized; boat was tidy and clean,...More
Was a last minute thing to decide to do this tour but really glad we did. The guide was very educated and delivered everything in an informative but entertaining way. An unusual way to see the impressive skyline.
This tour allowed me to look at Chicago in a different light. Our guide Blake was knowledgeable and personable.

LITERALLY one of the best tours I have ever been on. Chicago has always been one of my favorite cities. The city just knows what they are doing and keep is super clean and organized. The architecture in Chicago is famous, most people are aware...More
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

Very easy access at Navy Pier. A gentle ramp rather than stairs. Large flat deck so again no need to go up or down stairs. Definitely have stairs if you choose to board a tour that start on the river rather than Navy Pier.
