  • Great outdoor tour of architecture along the Chicago River. My 12 year old learned some interesting facts came we got some beautiful morning sunshine and photos. Worth every penny spent!

  • We had a terrific adventure on the 45 minute river tour... just perfect for my granddaughters, 5 and 7 yrs. old. The river was green for St. Patrick’s Day, and our guide was fun and informative... such a fun, family experience!!

  • Great guide, so informed. A boatload of people listened attentively. No bad seats. 45 min is a perfect length.

  • Great tour with a great guide. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Chicago for the first time.

  • Really nice, comfortable ride and beautiful bar area on bottom deck. Definitely warm on bottom deck for chilly day along with their delicious Hot Apple Cider. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area of Chicago. 😃👍
