We took the Architecture River Cruise from Michigan Avenue. Our tour guide, Victor, was very knowledgable and clearly loves Chicago. A beautiful was to see the city and learn about its architecture, river branches and bridges. We were Chicago natives and international guests. Everyone enjoyed it very much! I recommend it!

I definitely recommend this shoreline tour for anyone especially if you visit chicago for the first time like us.
We took the shoreline architecture tour from navy pier, the boat was very clean and in very good condition, the tour guide JEFF was very knowledgable about the history of the buildings and funny, the sceneries are amazing, we took some great pictures for the city, it is really amazing city.
I highly recommend taking a jacket with you because it might become windy and get cold

We took this tour just before heading home after 3 action packed days in Chicago. It was a great way to unwind and enjoy the scenery while learning more about Chicago. Would definitely do it again!

We took the water taxi from the Shedd Aquarium to Navy Pier then got on the tour there. The taxi was nice because yo had a great view of the city that you normally would not have.
The tour was about an hour and was light hearted. Our tour guide made a few jokes and directed us to visit the bar on board on more than one occasion.
The view of the city is fantastic, great opportunity for pictures.
Bring a light jacket because it's a little chilly on the water and you don't want to be cold for the whole tour (same for the taxi).
Just a little overpriced but we did it and our boat was packed, so it was worth it.
