Fun thing to do on a nice day - Beautiful day and a lovely cruise. Wish it lasted longer. Narration was very informative. Best seats are in the middle so you can hear the narration. Especially hard to hear in the back.

Great day! - loved the cruise, announcer was pleasant, i’m so glad you didn’t leave exactly at 2:30 because I couldn’t find the leaving point because my emails didn’t show what the name of the boat/company was, but I made it.

Great tour - The tour was on the shoreline of the city and explained unique historical key points about the city. Only drawback was the chilly weather on the 2nd level of the boat, recommend wearing comfortable layers when exploring

Enjoyed the ride - We enjoyed the ride which takes you outside the city. But the views are great. The bad thing for us was the parking. The website says to park at a public parking but it was a mile or more away on foot! Recommend parking at Navy Pier

Skip this and go on the Architectural Tour. - Meh...This isn't really a tour so much as a shuttle between 2 points. You cannot really hear the prerecorded audio information during the cruise and it's not that exciting. The Architectural Tour on the river is MUCH better. Spend your money there.

A bunch of crap - I’m very upset with this company. I had to move my time 2x due to the address that was provided to me. I called to see if I could voucher for another day and the rep said no that I had to prove that I wasn’t going to make before boat left. I spoke to the actual rep at the cruise and she provided me the correct address but I was out 1.5 hours away.
