    We had a lovely Chicago architecture river cruise with Don the Docent and it was a wonderful overview of not only the architecture of the city with different time periods and genres of architecture, but also a accompanying history of Chicago that displayed how the city has become what it is today. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone who is here for a day, we used city pass and it was worth it. We did it at 8:30pm in June so there was some day light when we began and later got a beautiful sight of the buildings lighting up.

    Highly recommend if you’re looking for a unique way to experience and explore the city, loved that they include some notes on history of the city as well. Our tour guide was amazing and did such a great job considering he was new + super young, we loved every minute of it.

    The cruise takes you only a short ways down the Chicago River and then most of the tour is out on Lake Michigan. The view is beautiful, but I honestly hoped there would be more actually cruising down the river and seeing all the buildings lit up from a closer view. Also going out into the lake means it was much colder and windier! Still a lovely view though!

    The views, history and personality of the tour guide (Joe) was awesome. It almost nearly made up for the very rude rep who picked up the phone when we called to clarify parking instructions before the 12:45pm tour. She has no business handling phones, rude and condescending, rather than being patient for 1min to clarify an information that she gave in a rush.

    Tour guide was animated and passionate about the stories! We also went to places that I normally wouldn’t have gone to so I thought that was an added bonus. Great overall! Also LOVED the stop at the Palmer House!

    David was very knowledgable regarding Chicago's history and its achitectuer and food. Great personality, friendly and engaging. Loved the back ground story on the founding peopele of the ciry and the lives and how they built with a vision for the future and showcasing it at the world fair.

    Again the information David was abel to recall was amazing and also in regards to origins of Chicago's food.

    Easy to find. Be early if you want a specific seat, but all seats seemed good. Boat was nice, had bathrooms and a bar. Tour and Narration were great. It was nice you could get up if you wanted didn't need to stay in your seat the whole time. No issues. Would do it again!

    The Segway Tour was AWESOME! We love Chicago, but really hadn't ever explored Grant Park south to Soldier Field. Great discoveries of art, sculptures, paths, wildlife. Our guide Mike was terrific. I'd highly recommend this as an outing!!!!!

    The Shedd Aquarium and Skydeck are included, but you need to make reservations for these. I also visited the Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum, and Museum of Science and Industry for the three additional attractions. It's easy to manage your CityPass with the phone app. Do the math and save yourself some money!

    Nice to see Chicago Skyline from the water. You would never think Lake Michigan was a lake it is so large. Lovely peaceful cruise in the sunshine with commentary about the history of the city. The commentary was good and clear and easy to hear as I find a lot of them to be muffled or too quiet so you struggle to hear.
