    Ryan M was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic! I recommend this cruise. Enjoyable and informative plus we had a perfect weather day after days of hot humid rainy weather.

    Great experience. Staff is really sailing the boat, not just motoring with sails. Staff was knowledgeable and fun. Great way to see the lake and the surrounding buildings. The price is also very reasonable! Foredeck employee Sam was great!

    Tour was interesting, informative, and fun. Highly recommend. This tour apparently goes further south than other tours which gives you some great views of Chicago.

    Great time!! Exceeded expectations and excellent view of the city and fireworks. LOVE Chicago! The only comment is for Trip Advisory. I was a bit nervous not being to locate the address right away on the event page. Please have that as part of the description of the event. Once I found it was easy to find boarding dock.

    Really loved the speed boat ride. Our tour guide Declan, made it a fun experience. I went with my husband and my 9, 6, amd 4, year old. They loved it. Definitely our clothes got wet, so I would suggest a light waterproof jacket, or a change of shirt. Price wise, well they did have a $18 city amusement fee aside from "other fees" plus a Gas fee and then taxes added. So it was a little on the pricey side. Still a memorable family experience.

    Staff was great. Special thanks to the manager Mathew. Trip advisor charges you a $100 to book through this so just call the yacht

    Bar service was somewhat unorganized. Only one person tending bar on the second deck for a while. Also, bartender unable to make various mixed drinks because out of certain mixers.

    Nice 75 minutes tour on a ship. A good way of seeing fireworks and the Chicago skyline at night. Don't forget your jacket, it's windy on board ;)

    Both informative and fun boat tour! It was the perfect length (45 minutes) to be both informative and engaging. Meeting point is very central and easy to get to. Highly recommended!
