Absolutely wonderful trip down the river. So many more new buildings and structures than when we lived there 12 years ago. The tour guide provide so much information as well as anecdotal comments to liven up the cruise. Would reccomend this adventure to anyone living in the area as well as visitors to the city.

We visited Chicago for the Bear Greenbay game and thought we would see some of the sites. This was a great way to see Chicagos highlights - we had a wonderful time

An excellent river cruise and guide. The ticket office is close by and has complimentary coffee, tea and water. The cruise was 1 1/2 hours and it was a great way to see many of the well known buildings in Chicago.

Our guide was an absolute wealth of knowledge: architecture, history, etc. Arrive early to get a good seat. Definitely pay attn to their directions as they are NOT on Navy Pier. Excellent value!

Lynn, our docent/guide was excellent and very familiar with the area. She was born and raised in Chicago, and had a wealth of knowledge on the architects and their style. She also provided information and recommendations on visiting various buildings in person. We would take the tour again.

I went with my daughter and husband on the cruise and we all loved it.
Very informative and entertaining
The visit does not have a selection that suits us, my husband and I attended with our adult daughter who was in Chicago for a training session. so I picked solo

I did the the night tour with Chicago Architectural River Cruise. They were so professional and kind. The tour guide was so knowledgeable of the city and its history. At the end of the cruise we go to see fireworks. I would recommend doing this cruise at night so you ca see the lights of the city. I would recommend this cruise to everyone!
