I have wanted to do this tour for years and it was better than I had hoped! The views were stunning and we learned tons about the buildings. Mark was fantastic and kept everyone entertained while teaching us about the architecture and history of the city. I highly recommend this tour!

We had a beautiful time on the cruise! We learned so much about the history of the buildings, but also of Chicago. Our guide was excellent. He was very engaging and knew his subject well. Worth every penny!

Declan "Flash", Albert, and Captain Swag took really good care of us. Not a native but highly recommend this to anybody coming through Chicago. The tour was well worth it and learned a lot of neat facts about the history. Also huge plus is it is dog friendly.

This Cruise was fantastic. It departed very close to our hotel near he center of everything. The boat was comfortable and there were hot drinks that were welcome on a chilly morning. Our guide was fantastic. He spoke non-stop the entire tour and everything he said was informative and interesting. The tour itself was an education in urban architecture and as an architect I loved it, but so did my non-architect family and friends. Highly recommended.
