I have been to Chicago more times than I can count, but taking this tour I saw a completely different view of Chicago with the Architectural Tour. Saw great views plus learned a lot along the way! This tour was great, our guide was great, the group was about 30 kayaks, they had enough staff to make sure everyone stayed... More

As soon as we approached the check-in area we were warmly greeted, directed to sign waivers, shown the lockers, and offered water and snacks while we waited for our entire group to arrive. When our group (everyone who signed up for the 3 pm tour) was all checked-in we were given a presentation while sitting in the kayaks on dry... More

I did tandem with my son who did most of the rowing while I took pictures. Tons of awesome pictures. I loved that this... More

I went here with a friend to do SUP at Montrose. She had never tried it before, and I had only gone once. It was a windy day and the water was very wavy. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the equipment was good quality. Even though the waves were rough we still had a great time! I... More

They guys at Kayak Chicago are great - I really enjoyed the enthusiasm team social factor they embodied. The equipment was first rate and they were very well organised especially as the weather was turning bad and they cut the trip short. They were safety focused and very knowledgeable about the architecture for this tour.

From the moment you enter Kayak Chicago 's yard you are made to feel welcomed. Dave greeted us warmly, had a great sense of humor, I knew we were in for some fun. The whole crew was great. We took the 3 hour architectural tour, which started off with a safety lesson, and how to use your kayak. Once done... More

I loved being able to take my dog, who equally enjoys the water as much as I do, out kayaking for the day! It was a fun adventure, for a great deal! They sometimes have groupons too.

I booked the Architecture Tour with my girlfriend for her birthday. We are both architects and are always looking for fun ways to learn more about the history of Chicago. The tour itself was really fun, we ended up in a group of about 13 people. The guides did a great job keeping everyone on track and training us to... More
