Excellent adventure
Aaron Footman, Dec 2019 Verified
I never had an appreciation of Architecture until I participated in the tour. Victor, our tour guide, was brilliant, well-informed, and had the uncanny ability to make something so pedestrian fresh and exciting. I can't wait to return to Chicago to do the tour again. This is money well spent. Aaron

Aside from the cold weather, we had a great a wonderful time. The narration by William was really informative and entertaining at the same time? We highly recommend it.

It was was my 4th rivet tour. Every time my friends come to stay with me I take them to the architecture tour because I think it gives you an opportunity to see and admire Chicago from a different prospective. This last tour was the most enjoyable. There was so much information about the buildings, innovative construction ideas, and history on how Chicago was developing. I was impressed.

We took our cruise right before sunset and it was a great way to start our evening. Our tour guide gave us lots of great information about the many beautiful buildings along the river. We were fortunate to get a amazing sunset while we were on our river cruise. Looking at the skyline of Chicago right at sunset was the best part of our evening. The bonus for us was a full moon was coming up at the same time.

Our group had a great time, tour leader clearly loves his job and was very knowledgeable. Would recommend for your visit to Chicago, especially at night.
