Meet up location was easy to find and as advertised. Staff was courteous. The boat itself was clean and had an open bar for beverages and drinks. The tour guide Kevin was phenomenal! He made the tour very fun and provided a wealth of information regarding Chicago’s architecture. Kevin was very knowledgeable about the subject and seemed passionate about his work, which is always a bonus. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn Chicago history and just have a good time with awesome people. Definitely doing tt his tour again on my next visit!

The boat was very nice and our guide, Ashley was incredible. She knew so much about all the buildings and she was very open to answering questions. She made the experience very memorable. The boat tour itself was my favorite activity during my whole trip to Chicago. The architecture is gorgeous and the water is so calming. I will definitely be coming back to Chicago and I’ll do this same boat tour!

Very informative and entertaining tour. We went on this tour with our 14 year old son and 12 year old daughter. Everyone has a good time and came away remembering what they heard on the tour which reveals that it kept their attention.

This is a perfect activity for a warm spring day in the city. Our tour guide was funny, entertaining, and informative. I have lived in Chicago my whole life and learned so many new things on this tour.

Well worth the price. our guide was knowledgeable regarding architecture history. Good information! makes you appreciate the beauty that Chicago has to offer!
