We headed out for this tour on a cold, rainy Saturday morning. As it turned out, there were only a total of 6 off us on the boat. We were able to all stay under the cover of the overhang so we could still see everything without getting wet. Even in the not so perfect weather, our guide was enthusiastic and informative. I appreciated a different view of the city and learning about the history. I would highly recommend.

Our tour guide was very informative and knew a lot of the history concerning buildings along the river cruise. I have to admit, seeing Chicago from the river gives you a different perspective on the rich architectural history of the city. And some of the buildings are quite beautiful. You can’t really experience this at street level, and because of this, the river cruise is a great option. We did this in November when it was really cold, and I think the experience would be better in the summer/spring. Our boat was open and the wind made it feel much colder.

Our tour guide was extremely funny and had so much knowledge so it kept it very interesting. Definitely one of the best things to do in Chicago.

We were in Chicago for a couples weekend and faced a rainy forecast. We decided to do a boat tour as I had been on one before but my husband had not. The boat had restroom facilities and options for sitting below deck or up above (not too pleasant on day like ours). Nick, our guide was very informative and willing to answer any questions. He also told us the moments when it was work braving the upper deck in the mist. We had a smaller group, given the weather, but the staff was very friendly. The tour covered the south, north and west rivers. We learned things about the City we never knew from the land, and also learned about the challenges of building skyscrapers in a windy city.

This tour was great. I got to see all of Chicago and it fine architecture through a water perspective. Nick was an excellent narrator, very funny and informative. I definitely would recommend this tour!
