We took the architecture tour twice because it's so good. The first time we had to sit downstairs as the boat was very crowded, so it was sometimes hard to follow which building we were supposed to be looking at as the guide spoke so fast and we couldn't see him point! The second time we sat on top and whilst this was better we still enjoyed both trips. We also did the Skyline tour. Worth it for us as it was included on our Go Chicago pass.

My husband and I were captivated during the hour long architectural river tour. Our tour guide was well versed, funny, knowledgeable, and talked very quickly. The history behind Chicago made our short visit to Chicago special. It was great to take the tour and then walk the city and see the buildings at a different perspective.

Was in the city visiting family and we decided to give this a try. Glad we did! We took the Metra in from Naperville ($7) and then a water taxi ($8, round trip) to Navy Pier, grabbed a quick bite then got the last tour of the day. It was a beautiful tour, very interesting information and a real treat seeing the buildings from the river. Sara did a wonderful job as our guide. Even if you have been to the city several times, this is worth a hour of your time, I would do it again in the warmer months in the evening, think the skyline would be pretty lit up at night.
