What a great way to get around in Chicago! It's pretty inexpensive and what's cooler than taking a scenic boat ride to get where you need to go? Highly recommended.

Nothing special. No narration of city information. It is what it is. A water taxi from one spot to another.

This has become a favorite way to get from downtown to Chinatown for lunch and then either walk back or catch the CTA. We have also used the Chicago Water Taxi for a return trip. It is a pleasant ride and very enjoyable.

We used this to get from Shedd Aquarium to Navy Pier to meet friends and it was a cool way to get around and see the skyline from the water.

With a day pass at $ 10.00 we found the Water Taxi to be much better deal than going on one of the much more expensive river cruises. Wonderful views along the Chicago river! The boats are unsually uncrowded, you can hop on and hop off. We did not miss the tour guide at all. Highly recommended!
