    “Wow. You think you know Chicago? Take a ride on this cruise and you will be blown away by the information. We took the 90 minute cruise. It included free cookies, soda, coffee and tea which was a nice touch.”
  • Tali N / Toronto
    ““Don't be tempted by the boats on the main river” - Their location is not on the river itself but just a few minutes walk from it. worth it !”
  • Operagolf / La Habra
    “This is my 8th time on a Chicago architectural river cruise and this was by far the most informative and biggest bang for your buck.”
  • Marc K. / Whittier, CA
    “Great tour! Learned so much about the history of Chicago architecture. Would definitely do this again since skyline changes with new buildings going up.”
  • DrCumbrian / Tripadvisor
    “The best guide on our whole USA trip. We took the Architecture tour where the boat meandered in between all of the incredible buildings of the city with the guide knowing EVERYTHING about each building; its style, age, height, architect, cost, purpose, owner ….. Quite brilliant!”
