Trevor was our tour guide, not only was he courteous and fun to talk to, he provided many informative and interesting facts about the city. He led the group in a good pace, so we didn't feel rushed. We got to enjoy the city in a special way while enjoying the fun in kayaking. The location is very easy to find, and the check-in process was super easy. The company seems very well-organized and the site is clean and comfortable. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and families. And if we ever visit Chicago again, we would definitely go on another tour or rent from Urban Kayaks! The trip was worth every penny!
