We took this tour at the end of September 2022. We didn't know what to expect. It was freezing cold the night we went, but we forged ahead. And we were glad that we did. The buildings were beautiful, and the information was very interesting. Our tour guide was teacher I believe. She was very interesting and informative. Well worth the money.

We were a little concerned that at night we wouldn’t be able to see as much, but we had a great time! We still got some awesome pictures and we were able to see the city from the comfort of our seats. P.S. We brought a blanket and it made for perfect date night with the chilly weather.

The city at night was so beautiful! We have done the boat tour during the day but this was a whole new experience. Our out of town company was thrilled I booked this tour. Very chilly night but we brought blankets and snuggled up!

Definitely worth it! Husband and I went on the 45 min tour on a particularly cold November evening. But it was worth it! It was about 50° so bundle up. We weren’t but bought a spiked hot cider and that helped. We sat on the top, open air area. They do have an enclosed warm area downstairs with the concession stand and bathrooms. Additionally, Alison, our guide, was amazing and offered so much valuable information. If we had more time, we would have booked a longer tour.

Our tour guide was personable and comical, and the views were breathtaking. The shorter,c45-minute option was perfect for taking the kids along.

I really enjoyed the tour. Chicago is so beautiful. My friend was visiting for the first time and she loved it. I have done this tour at least thrice now, and it still feels like the first time every time. I would highly recommend it.

We booked the 6 pm 45 minute tour and it was absolutely stunning! The lights sparkling off the water was so gorgeous on a beautiful fall night. The time was perfect. Getting on and off the boat was easy. The perfect tour to do before cocktails at Trump towers. Loved our knowledgeable tour guide. Highly recommend!

The tour guide was amazing. He said it was his last time doing the tour and I'd have to say he made it worth it. Great knowledge of all buildings and made it fun. Hands down the best thing my wife and I did during our trip. Thank you sir
