Well run family owned business. Boat was clean and set up nicely for the tour. Pouch drinks were good but bit overpriced. Tour guide made the trip fun and interesting. Boat is tall so make sure heads down when under the bridge if tall. Have fun. 🙌😃

We sat inside to stay out of the sun, but it was difficult to hear the tour guide in there. We had a Groupon "deal", but we ended up paying full price. The "Event Coordinator" said everyone had to pay some $5/person fee. Other than that, it was nice to see Chicago from a boat.
