Beautiful Scenic Tour!
Jun 2021
We booked the 6:45 p.m. tour. Perfect timing. We enjoyed a peaceful scenic tour down the river with the sun light touching the shimmering glass of the skyscrapers at just the right moment. Our tour guide Jim was impressively knowledgable about the architectural style and history of the buildings. Lots of information was shared. I feel this tour offers the best way to get close to all the buildings on the river all at one time.

Fun night on the lake.
Jun 2021 • Family
The captain, Mark, and the tour guide, Dave, we’re great! The bartender was good too but there was only one person behind the bar (and she did a fantastic job) but the line was really long and it seemed to me to be a distraction from the main reason for going. I had the choice to drop out of the line, I realize that, and I didn’t.
Overall great experience, the scenery was great. The history given was delivered with a comedic presentation which I loved. Also the music selection was enjoyable.

Great Chicago experience!

The tour guide was fantastic! Kind and funny, I loved the jokes :) it was nice to get a history of the buildings along the river. The sunset tour was amazing! You get to see the sunset behind the skyline and also see the skyline at night!

Chicago City Skyline at Night
Apr 2021 • Couples
Completely different experience seeing the skyline during sunset and at night. Worth the experience! Would highly recommend this tour, affordable price, 90 minutes on the lake and river. We were fortunate to do this tour on a full moon. Loved it.
