Why walk when you can glide - Definitely love being on the water tickets were easy to get and they have a military discount. You are sure to smile when you get on the deck and see the beautiful water

Adventure-packed boat tour delivers! - This was such a unique and fun tour for our small group of girls for my bachelorette weekend! Liam was super knowledgeable about the Chicago skyline and made the tour a great balance of historic factoids and exciting adventure with speeding/turns around the lake. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a more unique aquatic/boat experience other than your standard booze cruise.

Character reference! - So, here's a different kind of review- I cannot comment on Yachti as a tour, tender, or charter company, but I can reference its owner/operator Liam. I've utilized Liam's services twice to help with sailboat mast work, and both projects have been completed successfully (one with some greater challenges). Most notably, Liam's character and sense of professionalism and dedication to the projects was of the highest caliber. Not only does he do the job right, he is pleasant company in the process, even with some risky conditions. It's easy to find a boat captain to ferry people from point to point; it's another thing to find an operator with such personal standing. Liam is a cut above!

Game changing service! - Yachti’s water taxi service made our day on the lake run so smoothly and saved us hours of time! Liam and the crew at Yachti are incredibly professional and very punctual. In my opinion, this is the most convenient way to get to and from a boat charter mid day without having to waste time going back to the harbor. During our charter, we had a few people who needed to leave early and Yachti saved the larger group a trip back while helping my friends get to shore and make their flight on time. We also used them to complete the last mile of a spontaneous pizza order to the boat and keep the party going! I will definitely use their service again and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a water taxi.

Great way to experience Chicago! - My girlfriend and I went on the Adventure Tour in early October last year, and it was an exceptional experience. Our captain, Liam, was incredibly professional and attentive throughout the entire trip. When we encountered a boat issue, he quickly resolved and more than made up for it. One of the highlights of our entire trip was the special tour that Liam treated us to. Not only did he showcase the beautiful sights of Chicago, but he also provided us with a wealth of historical knowledge, making the experience all the more enjoyable. Overall, I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a memorable experience on Lake Michigan. Liam's dedication to ensuring a seamless trip, combined with his expertise and professionalism, make Goyachti a top choice for anyone looking to explore the waters in style.

Fast and fun, hang on and have a blast! - We had a blast! Liam was amazing - we even had a snafu with TripAdvisor communicating the booking, but it did not matter, Liam pivoted on a moments notice and wanted to make sure we got on the water and enjoyed ourselves. We had teenagers with us, including an exchange student from Italy, and they were laughing so hard they were crying while Liam maneuvered the boat around the lake. The small size of the boat really makes it feel as if you have the entire Chicago skyline to yourself, it's different than any other tour you can book - a nice balance of history for the adults and speed and adrenaline for the teenagers! We highly recommend this for those seeking a more unique option and for those who like a bit of speed and fun with their tour :)

Water, speed, history, and a great guide - what could be better? - What a great way to spend time on the water, see the city from a different perspective, go fast, turn fast, and learn some fascinating history from a fascinating guide. I don't know what other guides are out there, but I can't imagine there could be a better one than Liam.

Great fun on Lake Michigan - Liam gave us a great tour with many stories, historical facts and tidbits. We also loved the fast turns and speed! The teens in our group loved his entertaining stories and of course speeding across Lake Michigan at top speed! Liam loves Chicago and its history as well as boats. He helped us to love them too.
