I chose this rating only because of the size of our group. It was a little too large such that I would often bump into other kayakers in our group. I wish the 3 tour guides had broken us up into smaller groups. Otherwise, the sunset tour was awesome. Friendly and helpful guides :)

Great tour on a busy night on the Chicago River. The guides were very skilled and kept everyone safe on the river during a busy Summer night in Chicago. I did a tandem Kayak with my 11 year old son for the first time, and while we were nervous at first, the trip turned out to be really fun, largely because the guides did such a great job.
