It was fun

The fireworks tour was fantastic! The buildings at night were breathtaking, and the fireworks were the cherry on top. The Kayak Chicago staff was even better. They kept us safe and made us feel comfortable on a busy river, and they were always pleasant and fun when doing so. And as a bonus, the tour down the Chicago River with this company was longer than their competitors at the same cost (although some people might prefer a shorter paddle). My only complaint is that there were "taxes and fees" on my receipt of 18% that were neither noted on the website nor itemized/explained. Overall, A+!

I thought the Fireworks Paddle tour was a great way to take in the beauty of the Chicago River views and the fireworks were nice to view from the kayak. We really enjoyed it! Ride back to the origin point was a little long...but all good! The guides were encouraging and kept the energy up. Thanks! :-)
