    Our docent Kelly hosted an amazing tour! It was such a pleasant adventure in the city! I live in the area my entire life and learned so much in this one evening about the city. We will definitely be back.

    Loved it-boat was comfortable, staff and crew were friendly and helpful, and the tour guide was fantastic—lots of knowledge of Chicago.

    The tour and the views were awesome and we got to see some bonus fireworks at the end. Front row spot on Lake Michigan of the fireworks barge.

    This was one of my favorite things we did on our trip to Chicago. Sophia was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She brought the history to life with her energy and enthusiasm. I learned so much!

    Lilian did a great job narrating the food tour. The stops were perfect, the pace was good. My favorite was the pizza. The Palmer house was breathtaking.

    Wow ! So glad I did this. Hillary was great, made us laugh, and participate at times. She knew so much, and it was great she gave advance notice where and when to look. I think she could be a Stand Up Comedian. She told us architecture buildings we could visit later, and I did just that. Heard other commentators on tour boats today while walking the river, I realized I lucked out to have Hillary.

    You will only have 90 seconds to take your pictures on the clear balcony. They fit 2 groups/ families per balcony. Make sure you have a plan and your camera ready! That time includes the picture they take of you for you to purchase.

    The bus is really convenient for getting around to locations, but it is a recorded tour, which I was disappointed to discover.

    The boat was a great size, and our tour guide was amazing! This is an absolute must for anyone going to Chicago for the first time. It’s a great way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time, and you get to spend some time on the water.

    A great way to view & learn about some of Chicago's iconic architecture. Our guide was entertaining & kept the crowd involved in the tour. And you could save the miles you would have spent walking to see other sights! Would definitely recommend!

    Bought the C3 Pass. It fit my agenda. Worked as advertised. No problems. Saved a bit on full costs to sites and tours. Compare passes to find the one that fits your specific needs.

    Mike was fabulous and made our trip memorable. His photography skills were professional! We highly recommend.
    Pro tip: Their door is easy to miss as it only has a paper sign on it.

    We did the admission plus Tilt. Tilt was an extra $9 per ticket and I am not sure it’s worth it. It was cool and we can say we did it but where it’s located you are just looking down onto some other buildings and nothing that’s special. It’s probably a 15 degree tilt and there are bars to hold onto which I admit I didn’t lean on the glass so you do feel that you are up 94 floors. I probably enjoyed the room with the screens open air more than tilt. Now walking around that floor looking out the glass of Chicago downtown, the suburbs, navy pier and Lake Michigan was so worth it and absolutely beautiful. You can see as far as the eye can see. Lake Michigan is impressive because it’s fresh water for miles until it and the horizon become one. It needs to be experienced just once since most can not afford to stay in a top floor apartment.
