Great tour, but it was further north up the Chicago River than I expected. It was quite an upper body workout & the trip back was brutal. 3 miles of non-stop kayaking! Other than that it was pretty good. Architectural tour was nice on the kayaks!

Gave the team a 5 for care, caution, instructions, guidance- we had a group of over 20 & the guys did a terrific job of keeping everyone safe. Tour itself was a 3..... very light for an architectural tour....the city has waaay too much to offer about the architecture, most got missed
