Took a spooky tour with Captain Steve, First Mate Cool J, and guide Mary (or is it Abby-if you’re reading this please know I experienced sensory overload at the end and I’m sorry if I mixed up your name). It was a fun experience. Really enjoyed our guide’s sense of humor and their knowledge on not just Chicago haunted history, but the river’s locking system. 🤯 Recommend this tour if you’re interested in a good time and good stories.

We took the 75 minute architectural river cruise with Captain Matt, Captain Swag, and Abby. We had a great time and would highly recommend. The tour was entertaining and engaging and my kids (7 and 5) referenced things we learned the rest of the weekend! Absolutely happy with the experience!

The staff was not that friendly, they were not excited and that is a crucial part of the experience.
