The driver was on time and very pleasant! He explained some of the buildings but thought there were a few we would have liked to have heard more about some other buildings. I would have liked to have stopped at Millennium Park to see the Bean close up. We had stormy weather that day and couldn’t go on the architectural cruise.

Both the bus driver and boat tour commentator were very interesting, knowledgeable (historically and architecturally), and funny! It no doubt helps if the weather is good. Great overview of downtown Chicago. Would recommend this tour to anyone relatively new to Chicago.

Good for getting an overview of the downtown Chicago area

Our guide Rick was entertaining and knowledgeable. Also accommodating- let us change our tour time for earlier in the day. Found it helpful to get us familiar with the area, which we returned to the next day. Very limited stops- more of a drive by kind of tour.

Perfect outing for both Chicago residents and out-of-towners; Liked the small group atmosphere which made it more personalized Tour provided an informative overview of many of Chicago’s highlights. Our tour guide, Paul, was excellent!

Good overview of downtown Chicago. Walk off stops were good. Guide asked where we were from and made interesting comparisons to our home cities.
