As a first timer to Chicago, this river cruise was excellent. Beginning with the receptionist at the ticket office who was very welcoming and efficient. The ticket office facilities very good. The cruise guide was very informative and experienced as with the rest of the crew. The trip along both the North and South sides of the city was just the ticket for this short visit. The only down side was the weather.

We were very pleased with the tour and guide. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about Chicago and the amazing architecture. Walking by these buildings and then seeing them from the boat gave us a deep appreciation of this lovely city.
