Our guide, Bobby, was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. We only had a few hours to spend in Chicago. This tour and a deep dish pizza are the best way to experience Chicago on a time crunch. The tour is very interesting, with funny anecdotes and beautiful views. If coming in the winter, please dress warm. If you think you'll be warm enough, add another layer, lol. I'm from Miami and have very low cold tolerance. But wanted to see everything so I stayed on the deck. If you're too cold, you can take a break and a hot drink in the temperature controlled cabin. Overall great experience! And a mention for the polite and professional crew!

I had been in Chicago for a few days until I got around to doing this tour. I wish I had started with the boat tour as it really gave the city a ton of character and Nathan’s love for the city was infectious. I went into this tour thinking of Chicago as mostly a city with great food but after the tour I felt a new sense of fondness for its beautiful skyline. If anyone is visiting Chicago I’d suggest doing this tour first to give you a real sense of the Second City. P.S. the bartender made me a great cocktail.

This is a nice guide tour. The tourist guide is very knowledgeable making this experience even better since it is good by just the fact that one gets to see the city from a nice angle. Just bring a thick coat because the cold weather won’t let you get the best out of this experience.

It was a nice cruise on the river exploring the Chicago architecture . The host was amazing .

Really good cruise tour! The guide was amazing and the views of the city are so worth it
