“Had an amazing time on the architecture tour and was very impressed with the knowledge that our tour guide Sarah possessed! Highly recommend!“Katherine P., Breckenridge, CO | Source: Yelp 11/8/2015
“The 5:45 PM architecture tour on a Monday night was easily one of the best experiences we had on our trip…. Ben made the tour worthwhile and had me at attention and at the edge of my seat for the entirety of our trip. He talked about specific architects, rationale and philosophy of design, actual architectural principles and strategies, and about the future of the Windy City's skyline.”Arthur M., Henderson, NV | Source: Yelp 10/31/2015
“The Architecture Tour has always been one of my favorites! It's a great tour through the Chicago River learning about the different buildings & history of Chicago. Anytime we have family or friends in from out of town & they want to go downtown or to Navy Pier, we always recommend they experience the Architecture Tour because it is that great! Everyone we have taken on this tour has always enjoyed themselves very much. There is also a bar on the boat, which is an added bonus! But seriously, this tour is a great opportunity for sightseeing & awesome photos! Lastly, the employees & tour guides have always been extremely polite & pleasant.”Brittany S., Chicago, IL | Source: Yelp 10/29/2015
“Enjoyed this on a beautiful fall day. Tour guide Sarah was entertaining and had a wealth of knowledge of Chicago history and architecture. I've done these cruises with other Chicago companies, and this was the best one so far.”Judith Z., United States | Source: TripAdvisor November 2015
“…Victor, our tour guide was wonderful. His knowledge of the buildings on the tour, was awesome. And there is nothing like falling in love with a city through someone else's eyes.…Regardless of how you tour the City, this tour is worth it. Looking forward to going back for an evening tour.”Bailey G., Grapevine, TX | Source: TripAdvisor October 2015
“This tour was recommended to me by my Aunt who lives in California and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to have Rachael as our tour guide and she was fab. Knowledgeable, quirky and with a very relaxed style, she expertly narrated us along the Chicago River…. It was a great way to see some of the most beautiful buildings in Chicago and learn more about the city. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Chicago.”Kop_Chick | Source: TripAdvisor October 2015
