    Antonio was our guide/docent/teacher - his commentary was informational, educational, and entertaining all at once. This was the best thing we did during our week in Chicago - (and all of the other activities were great and worth our time and money), but this tour was the best.

    Knowledgeable Tour Guide with a real love for Chicago. Great overview of the history of the city's architecture, from its beginnings to the latest additions.

    We did the last tour of the day. So we saw most of the tour in the daylight (with great shadows etc for effect), and ended just after dark. Amazing sunset and night lights. Glad we chose this time. Amazing tour.

    This tour gave an excellent overview of the architectural highlights of Chicago’s skyline. I took it in 2006 and enjoyed both revisiting the older buildings as well as learning about new ones; plus information on engineering and architectural innovations. Do not miss this tour!

    Everything was awesome!! The boat was boarded and left on time, the water was beautiful and the skyline views were amazing!! The ONLY suggestion I have is that the boat speakers be louder. We missed some of the narration of the buildings due to the sound of the boat and the motor. But other than that, both my husband and I enjoyed our time!! Would definitely recommend!

    Great time!! Exceeded expectations and excellent view of the city and fireworks. LOVE Chicago! The only comment is for Trip Advisory. I was a bit nervous not being to locate the address right away on the event page. Please have that as part of the description of the event. Once I found it was easy to find boarding dock.

    Thank you so much for starting out my Chicago Trip with a bang! Jake was very friendly and accommodating. He picked us up at our hotel after texting to confirm time. When he got stuck in traffic, he text that he would be two minutes late. Then we were off to see the City. He answered all our questions with a smile on his face and dropped us at the Riverwalk instead of our hotel. Thank you Jake!!

    Really loved the speed boat ride. Our tour guide Declan, made it a fun experience. I went with my husband and my 9, 6, amd 4, year old. They loved it. Definitely our clothes got wet, so I would suggest a light waterproof jacket, or a change of shirt. Price wise, well they did have a $18 city amusement fee aside from "other fees" plus a Gas fee and then taxes added. So it was a little on the pricey side. Still a memorable family experience.

    We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and the views of the Chicago skyline are always magnificent. We actually had a captain who was supervising one working for his certification. Both were really nice, professional sailors.

    Bar service was somewhat unorganized. Only one person tending bar on the second deck for a while. Also, bartender unable to make various mixed drinks because out of certain mixers.

    Staff was great. Special thanks to the manager Mathew. Trip advisor charges you a $100 to book through this so just call the yacht
