Our family is always looking for things to do that are a little out of the ordinary. This meets the bill! They offer several different excursions which are narrated by a guide during different times of the day. Our family chose the architectural tour on the Chicago River. They go over safety guidelines with you and then into the water you go. The tour was supposed to last 3 hrs, but was shortened because of a storm. We would like to return again, but I would suggest watching the weather. If there is no lightning, then the tour continues. The lightning began about half way through the tour, so at that point we had to paddle back to where we originally put in. Keep in mind that since we were more than an hour into the tour there was no refund. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this excursion, but as I stated before, check with the weather first so that you are able to get as much time on the water as possible. Plus, its not great to be on the river during a storm. Also, there is plenty of parking so just program it into your GPS.
