August 6, 2014 (my birthday) I was fortunate to be able to go on a SECOND EXTREME THRILL RIDE (first was 6/19/2013). This ride had FANTASTIC passengers who really 'got into it.' Also the weather was perfect and my husband and I got TOTALLY SOAKED! As in my First Review, my Favorite 'stunt' was going FAST--REALLY FAST---and then turning so... More

The boat ride was very comfortable (and I tend to have back issues), the narration along the way was superb, and the sights were incredible. I highly recommend this.

We wanted to do a boat trip around Chicago whilst visiting and chose this one as the boats looked a little faster than the standard tourist trip cruises. We had a voucher from the bus tour so ended up getting the 60 min trip 2 for 1. The tour by Andrew was great and very informative. Our favourite part was... More

We had a blast! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a family. Perfect balance of educational information combined with humor and an amazing guide (Jake aka Jake from State Farm). A fun ride along the lake before slowing things down along the river. Jake was an unbelievable source of information, funny and entertaining. It's obvious he loves his... More

Jake our guide was amazing, we had a good time. Speedboat ride was nice. It is nice if you want something more than just a quiet cruise.

We took the speedboat/architecture tour and it was amazing. I loved the speedboat part with fantastic city views from the lake. My wife loved the architecture tour and scent of chocolate coming from a chocolate factory along the river. Our tour guide Jake (aka Jake from State Farm & J Biebs) was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable, fun, and informative.... More

We did this as our first stop in Chicago and had a great time. Got a good view of the city from the lake and then went through the locks into the Chicago River. Entertaining and knowledgeable guide made the trip. Encouraged questions and spoke with everyone on our small group ride. Look for discount codes in local guides.

A beautiful October day to enjoy a pleasant boat ride and see Chicago. Our guide, Jake, was informative, interesting, and fun. We took the architecture tour and enjoyed learning about the many buildings.

We went on the 75 min architecture tour. A quick spin on the lake before you enter the lock system and then on to the river. The tour guide was Chopper, who apart from the occasional barking noise, was very good. Well worth a trip
