I really enjoyed the tour and a young lady who checks tickets as you board the boat was very compassionate and accommodating; I had a foot injury. Great tour with kind people! Thanks lashes.

This was an amazing boat tour! Definitely recommend however the lady Becky that hosted it was a little to personal with things going on in the company and her quitting next week.. Some things are better left unsaid. Other than that first time in Chicago and it was wonderful! Beautiful city love the architect the buildings have.

About Shoreline Sightseeing

Shoreline Sightseeing has been whisking passengers along Lake Michigan since 1939. Traveling down the reverse-engineered Chicago River, Shoreline’s architecture tours explore the history of the city’s landmark buildings—from the Great Fire of 1871 to the work of famed architects Mies van der Rohe and Jeanne Gang. Colorful bursts illuminate the sky during fireworks cruises, and nighttime tours allow for glimpses of lit-up buildings. Classic lake tours drift into Lake Michigan, giving passengers a chance to espy the whole city, and water taxis connect visitors from one destination to the next, speeding between Navy Pier, the Museum Campus, Michigan Ave., and the Willis Tower.
