    This is the best tour I have ever done in any city in the world. I rate it higher than a cruise around Manhattan and a van drive in the Austrian Alps. We did it once a few years ago. The next year when we drove into Chicago one person in our group had not been with us and we were more than excited to do it again with two kids under the age of 10. Absolutely incredible!!

    Great narration by a actual guide, not pre recorded so there could be no interaction. Magnificent views of the great Chicago skyline. Truly breath taking.

    Architure tour on the river cruise and trip through the lock onto Lake Michigan was fun and informative. Tour guide kept the crowd engaged even though with river traffic and short delays at the lock made us about a half hour late. Since it was July 4th weekend, they expected delays and they conscientiously warned us before we left giving people an opportunity to leave if they needed to.
    Great information about the City and the buildings and now I want to learn more about the architecture and I'm considering a land-based architecture tour the next time I'm in Chicago.

    Loved this tour! Our guide Andre was great, entertaining and knowledgeable! You could see his enthusiasm for the history surrounding Chicago, very informative and fun. Loved walking around Chicago and being shown the exciting spots with some interesting stories attached to it. Would highly recommend this tour, definitely one of the highlights of our trip!!

    A must-do Chicago activity. The best view of the city’s astounding architecture is from the river. A very comprehensive tour, with just enough history without being overbearing - the Chicago Architecture Center’s cruise is the one to take. Dick, our well-spoken, knowledgeable docent was great. Very impressive. Worth every dollar.

    Tay was a fun and energetic tour guide and we loved her big bus narration. Our first guide was also excellent, I’ll upload a pic if possible cause I forgot his name. The Loop is LONG and seems to take forever to finish but ah, the views.

    Truly amazing experience to explore the world famous Chicago restaurant scene. More than just a tour, our tour guide Anna made it a community building experience. A Chicago school teacher, Anna used those skills to have an ice breaker at the first stop, sitting around the family style table we all introduced ourselves and what food we didn't like, this bonded the group into interacting and talking threw our the tour. The tour itself is great for tasting full portions at iconic foodie locations around Chicago, skipping lines by following a careful route with reservations holding the table for us. Then between stops, a nice walk with Chicago history, architecture and lore shared. Absolute slam dunk of a perfect 3 hours about the second city food scene!

    Katie was an excellent tour guide as we learned so much of the crime and mob history of the Windy City. We would recommend this for couples, friends and groups 18+. We had a lot of fun. Just make sure to use the restroom before boarding. We had breakfast at Wild Berry across the street before our tour and it was a great combo. Thank you Katie and Ron!

    The boat tour on the Chicago River. Was the 4th of July weekend and traffic was terrible. We started late and it just kept getting later. Did not get back to the hotel until 8:45. Tour started at 2:30.

    Had an amazing experience touring Chicago with Pilot Sarah. She was very professional while creating a comfortable and welcoming environment. The flight was smooth and the views were unbeatable. A must have experience!
