Fantastic tour! Very informative and extremely entertaining! Great way to see the city and learn about the architecture all while being humoursly entertained by our awesome guide Eric! The boat was piloted by Captain Grant with help from first mate Rock. Honestly this was the best tour we did in Chicago and the most informative and entertaining!

This is another way to discover Chicago & it’s history. Very interesting to look at the building, the architecture & why the shapes are different.....On a lovely summer day; it’s very enjoyable to sail up & down the river. Chicago has so much to offer!
