Sparkling Presentation of Architectural Gems in Chicago

The tour was very well organized and informative. The boat was spacious and comfortable but the real 5 star rating of the tour belongs our guide, Jake. He was polished yet wittily entertaining and so knowledgeable not only about the history of the buildings but also about the construction techniques and what each building contributed historically to the shaping of Chicago's cityscape. He gave us an excellent experience, one that we heartily endorse to anyone seeking to understand how the architecture and strategic city planning has informed the city of Chicago.

Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy history.

Our tour guide's name was Kevin, and he was, in a single word, fantastic! Not only did he know the subject very well, he had the perfect personality to be providing the history of the architecture of Chicago. He had so much information, that we were not able to retain it all! And he presented it in a very engaging way, that kept everyone interested. Our entire group of 10 people loved the tour, and Kevin's knowledge. Great tour.

Wonderful Educational for you and very enjoyable

The boat ride was fun clean and very enjoyable. I learned a lot and would do it again the view was wonderful when we saw something turned around and came back and saw something else we all enjoyed our time and enjoyed hearing all about the buildings

Views were terrific and tour guide was excellent

We took the last tour at 7:30 pm (end of July) so we could see the river in the day and with lights on. Both views were wonderful; glad we did it. Our tour guide really knew his facts , but also had a nice sense of humor. Highly recommend!

Great Cruise - The audio needs to be much better though

This is a great cruise ... comfortable and actually uses up the 75 minutes. The only downside is that the audio is not clear and one could hear much of the details of the architecture of the buildings.
