Our guide Vicki was so much fun and so knowledgeable. I was interested in learning about kayaking the chicago river by myself and she gave me so many great tips!
Nothing but good things to say about Kayak Chicago! The tour guides and instructors are fabulous! They are friendly and enthusiastic! They give great instruction on how to paddle, rules of the road, and safety. They are very attentive with a large group to ensure everyone's safety, and that everyone is having a great time! I would definitely recommend Kayak Chicago, and I plan to do another tour with them in the future.
Had a great time kayaking with friends. Our guide Bubba was very knowledgeable and friendly. Beautiful evening with the city lights. We would definitely do it again. Thank you Kayak Chicago!
We had an amazing time! Staff was great and the whole experience was perfect.
I thought everyone was very helpful and kind!
The instructors were great and patient
It's a super fun experience and the crew at Kayak Chicago are super friendly and helpful, making sure that no one is behind. You'll have an amazing experience and get to view the city and its beautiful night light!
Our first time kayaking and it was a great experience! The crew was knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The sunset tour was a wonderful experience I would definitely recommend it.
Thanks for a fun night with friends- Bubba very patient with us slow paddlers- thanks Bubba!
I had an amazing time ! Was my very first time and I will definitely do it again ! Our Instructor we're amazing as well ! Couldn't ask for a better group!
Staff great and fantastic equipment. I've kayaked several times and was comfortable but I think it needed more stops. I overheard around 10 different people not exaggerating make comments about this and they wouldn't book a tour like this again. My friend said the same thing and that she physically wasn't prepared for this. Big picture this is a lot of people to say this then whoever they tell... especially with most of the group being from Chicago and neighbor cities. Personally I liked the people but agree with this and there should be more scenic stops...everyone felt extremely rushed.
As always the staffs are super supportive, friendly. This was my 3rd time and coming next week again.
Very responsible team. Thanks
I expected to be able to see the actual sunset which didn’t happen. It was a very busy night so there was a lot of stopping, and the lockers at the bases didn’t appropriately work so my money was lost and I had to purchase an additional locker at my expense. Finally I reached out to the company 4 days before my tour to make some changes, I gave both a phone number and email at their request, one of the employees, who said he’d forward it to the owner and I never received any further communication.
Experience was fantastic: the views, the guides, the price. Very compassionate guides. My friend, the first time kayaker, was paddling slowly and the guides never left her behind. Thank u!!!
This was a wonderful evening out on the water! Our guide was fun and educational. We had a blast! Plan on going back for sure!
It was just plain fun, instructors were friendly and it was an overall satisfying and enjoyable experience.
Ryan was awesome! Wish the tour would have gone further down the river towards the lake.
Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, funny, informative & kind. He ensured everyone was safe & provided wonderful stories about Chicago, the buildings & histories in an engaging way. The view from the river is a beautiful perspective!
The overall experience was fun. I'd definitely recommend people to try this tour out. One thing I'd say though is that be prepared to get wet. Also, there tends to be boat traffic which sometimes leads to less kayaking freedom.
The tour was great! Maybe a bit more or trip to the lake
The guides were very helpful and demonstrated care for the group by making sure everyone was safe and stayed together. There were stops made to take pictures and learn fun facts about the river/city evolvement. Great experience overall with experts and a good workout!
THe tour guides were knowledgeable and helped us any time we needed it by giving us tricks to use if the winds started to push us around. The sunset tour was great, loved the experience. Didn’t get as wet as I expected which is great. Would do this again.
Great experience. Our guides were awesome. I would definitely recommend !!
Fun experience, great guide, great views.
It was a very nice evening for paddling the Chicago River. Our guide was on point at making sure we were always safe. Highly recommend Kayak Chicago! Thank you
Great tour! Not many people get to see the city from this angle and it’s something you will never forget. My tour guide was Wes; he is very friendly, insightful and has great stories about the city. Could not have asked for a better tour guide! Would definitely recommend the evening tour – seeing the lights of the city reflect off the water is beautiful. Can't wait to do it again!
Beautiful way to see the city. Great guides
