We took the architectural tour while visiting the navy pier. It was nice going up and down the Chicago river and looking at the different buildings and learning the history of Chicago. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a pleasant ride and I would recommend it to friends and family. Maybe next time we'll try a night tour.

My husband and I spotted shoreline on groupon and bought tickets for the architectural boat tour. It was amazing!! Lasts about an hour and docks from either Navy Pier or by Michigan/Wacker. Amazing sights of all Chicagos skyscrapers and the tour guide provides interesting knowledge about each building. Would highly recommend doing on a warm weathered day!

We took the 10 an tour this morning. It was the architectural tour. I didn't know what to expect but I must say this was one of the best tours we've ever taken. Our guide was extremely knowledgable yet entertaining. I wish I had a recording if hs stories. The feeling of downtown from the river is amazing! I would highly recommend this tour!
