A delightfully different view of Chicago, this guided walking tour is a fun way to spend time learning about lesser known facts of our city. Tour leaders are knowledgeable and lead walkers along the river walk over to canal street where a water taxi ride...More

Our tour guide, Richard, has an obvious passion for the city and its history. He was very knowledgeable about Chicago—past and present—but also made the tour accessible and entertaining for all. I hope to go on more of these in the future!

Rick highlighted many stories about how Chicago came to be what it is today. He picked interesting, picturesque (and shady!) spots to tell the stories. His quizzes with rewards made it very engaging.

Our docent Sharon was phenomenal! She showed the first modern steel skyscrapers in the world built in Chicago during the 1880's & 1800's that defined the skyscraper which you do not see on the boat tours. Sharon took us to the Manadock Building, the Rookery,...More

Hi Steve, Thanks for your feedback. Next time, choose the History tour and you will get much more history than the River Walk tour you attended. River Walk Tours are great tours but do not dive into the depth of the city's history nearly as...More

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
