One of the best things we did in the city all summer. We took our relatives from Little Rock and they too really enjoyed it. Our crew was young but entertaining. Well worth it and would do it again!

Ridiculously amazing! Even if you're a local Chicagoan, you should still do this. The ride is fun, the staff is knowledgeable and what a great way to learn about the city via waterways!

The boat takes you on a look at the buildings of Chicago on the canals with a "funny" lecture (no so much, kind of lame) and after a fast lakefront boat ride. Great for out of town guest with kids.
A good value. I prefer doing each separately.....continued

This is a very basic tour - the famous buildings/landmarks pointed out were obvious and things people should already know (Sear's Tower, Shedd, Hancock, Field Museum - duh!!!), so that was very disappointing - tell us something new and exciting -...continued

This was a hilight to our 6-day vacation in Chicago! Brian kept us all entertained and well-informed with stories about the buildings, the river and the city. Myself, my husband and two teens (ages 18 & 15) loved the whole experience! Would...continued

We arrived at the venue one hour early. We waited about 30 minutes before the will call window opened, but boarded the Sea Dog shortly thereafter. After a brief dissertation about safety, we were off for our architectural tour. Our tour guide was...continued

Went for the fireworks cruise as one event I had planned during a weeklong celebration of my girlfriend's birthday. We had a great time, it was absolutely beautiful. The boat does have the potential of getting very rocky depending on the water...continued

Actual boat ride pretty short. Takes a while to get out to the lake. The whole ride is only 30 minutes. Go south just shy of museum campus an north to Hancock. So- not a lot of sightseeing or a lot of boat riding. Would never pay full price. Kids...continued

Entertaining host. They had cancelled the tour I signed up for but gave us a free upgrade to a longer tour. Very cold even on a day in the '60s! I should have known better :).

Entertaining and fun. Good tour director. Disappointed that we did not get a speedboat ride on the lake due to the waves.

I hadn't been to Navy Pier in years and thought a short boat ride on Lake Michigan would be refreshing because of the recent heat wave. It was ok. I knew it was going to be short and it was. The tour guide was a recent college graduate who would...continued
