My wife and I went for a anniversary excursion. The sunset time was great because we got a chance to learn in the day light and still see the beautiful lights of the city at night. We chose the tandem (2 person) kayak but I think next time we might save a few arguments floating solo. Lol.

We enjoyed our sunset river tour. The instructors were knowledgeable and gave plenty of instructions on how to kayak. The only complaint is that we paid for a 3 hour tour but we likely spent at least 30min or more on land doing prep. Also, once we were on the river, there were a few times we stopped as a group and it was unclear if we were taking a break or waiting for bigger boats to clear out or what. A bit more communication from the instructors during these times would have been great. We would return for another tour or rental and would recommend Kayak Chicago to others.
