    The was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and happily answered any questions we had. Certainly a great way to see the city and learn about its past and architecture.
    Would recommend you wrap up warm as it can get quite windy sitting on the top deck where you need to be to get the best views!

    This was such an amazing experience. A short cruise down the river and then out to the harbor to watch the sunset behind the city skyline. It’s beautiful to see the city in daylight, sunset and then at night.

    Most convenient way to see everything quickly with a small child. We were able to use our car seat and get dropped off directly at the sights. Value wise this cost was close to comparable if you factor in parking and other transportation fees. We had a great time seeing the city with our guide Danny!

    Perfect start to our Chicago trip. I had never been to Chicago and thoroughly enjoyed being on the water and seeing the skyline. The buffet was good, not great, although there certainly was plenty to choose from.

    A great way to see the city. I took my 80 year old mom on a ladies trip. The guide picked us up right from our hotel and dropped us off there at the end which was perfect. He was very funny and informative...highly recommend this tour!

    The view of Chicago from the river was simply breathtaking! 5 stars. Music & ambience was excellent. 5 stars. Staff and crew were attentive. 5 stars. The food was decent. 3 1/2 stars (perhaps 4 stars if food was served warmer). Accommodations for disabled persons were acceptable - but inconvenient. The restrooms were located on a lower level. Staff members were helpful in assisting one of our disabled guests down approximately 10 stairs using a portable stair climber. Once down the stairs, the restroom was pretty and clean but NOT handicap accessible. No ADA height toilet or grab bars. 1/2 star. A grab bar should be a requirement for establishments to claim they are accessible to all guests! To discover the lack of a common restroom fixture, I am forced to lower my overall rating to 3.8 stars. This was a beautiful cruise and an event that all people should be able to experience. I hope management will follow up and install simple grab bars in restrooms of the vessel.

    Really loved the speed boat ride. Our tour guide Declan, made it a fun experience. I went with my husband and my 9, 6, amd 4, year old. They loved it. Definitely our clothes got wet, so I would suggest a light waterproof jacket, or a change of shirt. Price wise, well they did have a $18 city amusement fee aside from "other fees" plus a Gas fee and then taxes added. So it was a little on the pricey side. Still a memorable family experience.

    It was a nice experience overall. The food was good and the DJ played really good music that everyone could enjoy listening and dancing to. My critique is that the confirmation details and texts didn’t have the name of the boat we were supposed to be on which made it kind of hectic trying to check in. There were multiple boats and we had to go to different ones trying to figure out which one was ours. Luckily the man that was checking people in was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure that we were on the right boat, had our table, and was comfortable during the cruise. Despite that, I would recommend this cruise for friends and others.

    Staff was great. Special thanks to the manager Mathew. Trip advisor charges you a $100 to book through this so just call the yacht

    This is a great tour, cos you get to do both the sedate river part, with commentary, then you also get out on the lake and zip both north and south a ways with more information at each sport. So, the best of both worlds.
    I also appreciated the communication beforehand, as I was a solo traveller trying to work out when the best available time was for me to join a tour and they were very flexible and patient with all my emails!!
