    This tour is amazingly worth to go! I finally got to know more about this windy city.
    It lasts about 1 hour, and we had a wonderful time with the tour guide, he explained the history of those landmark buildings with great humor. I enjoyed the whole trip very much!
    If you have a short trip in Chicago downtown, Iwould recommend it to you. We bought a chicago day pass, so the ticket is included, but dont forget to book online before you go!

    We had a wonderful time on the tour. It was very informative. I recommend for anyone. It can be difficult to hear at times and unfortunately a family sitting near us was very loud and make it even more difficult to hear at times.

    Excellent cruise with a very knowledgeable docent who did a great job of explaining the architectural styles, patterns , and eras of Chicago. He was great!

    Great experience! The crew were all very kind and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this tour! We went with hyper 6 and 3 year old but still had a great time and 90min was a manageable (parent sugestión) ;)

    Fun and educational tour! Would highly recommend if you're in the city and have around 2hrs to spare. Great to learn about the more "interesting" side of Chicago.

    We were lucky to be in Chicago on a beautiful sunny day at the end of September. We purchased the package that included drinks. We expected that the drinks would be served since that was our experience on an Architecture cruise in NYC. Once we were underway we were too nervous to set out down the stairs to find out about the bar and claim our drinks so we donated them to the company apparently. That was the only glitch so be warned that you best be pretty mobile or sit on the lower deck if you pay for drinks. We were captivated by the views at the top Right corner bench!
    Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, entertaining and he tried to be patient with the goof balls who insisted on climbing/standing on the seats/railings to get better photos. Be warned that it is dangerous and you will be made fun of if you are looking to get the Darwin Award! Go for drinks after the cruise is the lesson here.
    The sunset was magnificent with the backdrop of Chicago glittering as the blues melded to pinks and then indigo with spectacular city lights.

    Our Guide Brooke was amazing. We got a great combination of some great local food as well as getting informed about Chicago and its history. I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants to get acclimated with the city, have some good food and fun at the same time.

    For those not afraid of heights, this is a must-do thing while in Chicago. Not only do your ears pop on the way to the 103rd floor, when you get to the top you can see all of Chicago! The sky deck is fun to go out on and snap photos looking down. A good activity for teens.

    This is a mixed review. Our first bus ride was with Candice. She was the best bus driver! She gave a personal experience and engaged with the riders. Candice set the bar high for sure! The second bus driver didn't say anything to the riders other than notifying of us our stops. The audo recording we are forced to listen to is just awful. The recording is difficult to understand and the music played in between the narrative is truly painful. I've taken this tour countless times in the past, not sure when it changed to audio recordings. Thank goodness for Candice! The company needs to go back to the more personal experience.

    Rich was fantastic! My family (3 kids, 3 adults) thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The history shared, insights, ability to answer questions and the foods were wonderful. The tour was mobility accessible, and we were able to walk at a leisurely pace for all walking speeds, which was great! Our group was fun too, I loved meeting new people. Rich provided great suggestions for things to do and restaurants to try, which was very helpful.

    Amazing way to see the whole of the city. Incredible views! On the advice of the staff we opted to go up later than planned and we were glad we did. We got the whole experience and saw the Lakeshore, the gold Coast as well as all the well- known and iconic architectural sights!

    This is the second time I've taken this tour in 5 weeks! My husband and I did a daytime tour end of Sept and I returned for a conference and my sister came with. We did the nighttime cocktail tour. Both docents were beyond amazing and so knowledgeable. Each one with their own knowledge and flare. Would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat!
