I am not necessarily interested in architecture, but I was looking for something to do to explore the city on my own and found this tour on TA. The 1.5 hour cruise was very interesting, very informative, and fun. I learned quite a bit about the architecture and history of the city. I can't remember the name of our guide, but he was excellent, he walked around the boat, greeted everyone personally and asked where each traveler is from. He was a wealth of knowledge about the history and architecture.

This boat trip was brilliant, not only was it a relaxing trip through the Chicago waterways but it was a fantastic way of seeing many of Chicago’s iconic buildings in a different way. We travelled on Wednesday and were lucky to see the bridges being opened and closed to allow tall ships to enter Chicago. Jim our tour guide was excellent, he knew so much about the buildings that it kept us interested throughout the tour and it felt like the 75 minute tour passed very quickly.
I would recommend this tour for an unique experience of Chicago.

Very unique historical river cruise of architecture in downtown Chicago. Very pleasant sunny September day, we went with son & fiancee to Chicago. The moderator during cruise was very good. She knew the building style, year built, usage of, ownership, etc. Also told about building restrictions above and below. A different viewpoint and perspective about the Windy city, that I didn't know. A good weather event to do outside.

First time we took this architectural river boat tour. Highly recommend the docent, Nick, his knowledge of Chicago history past and present created a captivating imagery only supplemented by the actual buildings and the stories that surrounded them and their design and architecture.
