We took this tour with our adult daughter, who lives in Chicago, and it was very interesting, enjoyable and informative, even on a cold day in December. We plan to do it again in the summer, and highly recommend it for everyone.
Great tour even if you are a local

Took this open boat tour cruise. The tour guide was top notch...informative and entertaining.It was a very cold day, and I gutted it out on the open boat. The wind sometimes whipped it good. I'm glad I stuck it out but, come on. Wait for good weather.
