Charlie, our guide provided us with an informative history of the famous architecture of Chicago on the architecture your. He had a wonderful sense of humor and wit that added to the enjoyment of the tour. What makes SeaDog unique, is the speedboat ride in Lake Michigan which spans the city skyline. Lots of FUN!
