We had the most fantastic time on the river, celebrating a birthday! Captain Monica was a delight, and we were extremely happy with our experience. Thank you Captain Monica, and thank you Chicago Cycleboats! We had an amazing time!

The boat was a lot of fun. The boat is set up with coolers in the middle filled with ice. The thing I did not realize is that the pedaling actually propels the boat at times and was quite a bit of work. But hey, drink calories right?! We were paired up with a bachelorette group so that was a lot of fun. I would recommend this as a nice scenic way to see the buildings with a fun/lively atmosphere!

Cycleboats is certainly a fun idea! 10 people can sit at a high top table/bar, 5 on each side and pedal while hanging out. Drinks and snacks allowed. The 90 mins goes pretty quick and we cruised from the starting point down to the lake/ river locks and back. Fun crew. Took all the group photos we wanted and everyone had a great time. If you have no desire to pedal and just want to enjoy a boat ride, this ones not for you.

What a great way to ride down the Chicago River and see some of the city!! I did this with a group of friends and it was a blast!!! The boat's crew were friendly and helpful and we had a great time hanging out on the River Walk afterward.
