Great architecture tour experience! It was a scorching 95F degrees outside and I still enjoyed it. There are two levels on this boat- The top is open deck where all the views are, and the lower half is where the bar is located. There is some air-conditioning there! Our guide gave her personal insights of the happenings of the city / Chicago-y stories more than building specific structural facts!

What an amazing tour. Both the Captain and Amy the tour guide were fantastic. Perfect weather outing for the family. Amy did a remarkable job with providing so much knowledge on the history of Chicago. Would definitively recommend.

Really good tour but had a little trouble getting there fortunately they had not left since no exchanges or refunds for any reason! It was supposed to rain but sun came out. Just go directly to the address the 10$ parking is there. You can sit up top and see all or go below where there is a.c. and the bathrooms. Some info was fast hard to match with building but overall great experience.
