    We had visitors in from out of town and decided to take the river tour. Weather was great for it and so was the experience on the First Lady. Very informative with all the history and facts!

    Highlights along the tour cover more than a century of architectural innovation from classic buildings like the Civic Opera House to mid-century experiment Marina City to modern buildings like Aqua. En savoir plus

    When everyone tells you to take the architecture boat cruise in Chicago, this is the one they mean. other operators use students with a script, this one has knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides.

    Our docent was friendly, funny and obviously passionate about Chicago architecture. The buildings we saw from the water were quite impressive. A great way to see and appreciate the wonders of Chicago.

    They use a few different boats so sit were you like. The front on the boat is a fine place to sit. Also the bartenders are not jerks, they are people just like you and I. Be respectful and have fun!

    Always a pleasure. Each tour guide has their own style and stories, going more then once never feels redundant.

    If in Chicago don't miss out on this tour. Whether you like architecture or not it's a great experience. Try time it with good weather so you don't freeze on the upper deck

    I'm not an architecture buff; however, I found this 90 min. tour to be very interesting and a great way to learn about the history of Chicago. The docent was a volunteer professor from Northwestern.

    There are a ton of river boat tours stretching from Navy Pier down the river, but this is the best. Super enthusiastic (and knowledgeable) guide. 90 minutes. Do this day 1 of your trip!

    The tour is excellent! Make sure you get there early if you want a good seat on the deck however. Also, bonus points for the on-board bar!

    The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s boat tour might be the best in the city. The docents are all volunteers, but you'll marvel at the depth of their knowledge.

    Kind of touristy, but a great way to see a lot of Chicago in a short amount of time (and get good historical / architectural context!)
  • Kristen M.
    Loved the ride, just dress accordingly. By end I was so cold I kinda stop listening because I couldn’t feel my body!

    Our concierge Catherine at Sax Chicago says this is one "touristy" attraction that's actually a fascinating experience. The tour starts only 2 blocks from the Sax.

    Buy your tickets at the riverside kiosk, NOT ONLINE. You will pay about $20 extra in fees buying tickets online.

    Very interesting if you like architecture, but listening to 90 minutes of facts might be a bit too much for the average tourist. Despite that, you get a very good view of the city from the river.

    Look for the blue awning. Don't get fooled by the "fake tours" that have a lot of promoters. This is the real deal
