If you want to see Chicago without all the walking, take a relaxing trip on the Wendella sightseeing boat. I just took it about 3 weeks ago and I'm ready again.

A lovely way to view the skyline of Chicago on a cool relaxing waterway excursion. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour even more interesting. A must do activity for first time visitors to the city.

It was a great trip on the river, an hour and 15 min. The guide was a guy from Chicago who knew everything about the buildings, architects, dates etc. and just did a wonderful job. Don't miss it!

Need a better way to monitor the line before boarding, we had many people cut the line after one of the staff moved half the line to accommodate larger number of people waiting in line. They need to add another bartender, the line was 8 deep with only 1 tender and many staff walked by without offering to help out with orders. Many of us missed the beginning of tour because of the line. Pretty poor customer service.

From Our Editors

Wendella’s boats have sailed Chicago’s waters since 1935, when founder Albert Borgström built the company’s first ship by hand. Still run by Albert’s great grandson, Michael, the company complements its time-tested architecture and history tours with specialty tours that feature beer and barbecue, wine and cheese, or fireworks. Wendella also operates Chicago’s distinctive yellow-and-black water taxis.
