We loved our cruise experience. Our guide, Amir (spelling?), was great. We did not expect the speed boat portion at the end but loved it. 10/10 recommend and would do it again!

This tour combines a great river cruise showing off lots of architectural brilliance with a speedboat experience on the lake. And, best of all, you get to go through the lock! The guide we had (Amir?) was also excellent

Visiting Chicago with a dog (5 Replies)
Hi Everyone, We are looking to plan a short trip (2 nights) to chicago and will be driving there and bringing our well behaved 4 year old Pomeranian with us. I know there are quite a few dog friendly restaurants if you eat on the patio and we are planning on going on the cruise operated by Seadog Cruises. Given those details, is there a particular area that it would better for us to stay? Right now we are considering: Mile North, Palomar Hotel, Allegro Hotel and Indigo Hotel as they all...More
