“Best Tour Ever! - Entertaining & Informative”

Wendella Sightseeing Boats
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Recommended to anyone touring the city. We took the river and lake combo sightseeing tour...very entertaining & approved by our teenager. The tour guide (Andrew) is just phenomenal with tons of information about the city, its architecture and other trivia stuff.
The boat is clean and very well maintained by highly professional crew.

This was our first family trip to Chicago and we thoroughly enjoyed this river tour. The amount of information was enormous but at the same time so incredibly interesting and entertaining. Bring a lightweight jacket if you are signed up to go out onto the lake part of the tour - which we were so glad we chose to do b/c of the awesome views of the city. The weather that day was 80 degrees and sunny, but out on the lake it was windy and chilly. I wish I remembered the name of the guide because he was fabulous and I would love to give him a shout out!

I find that the tour of the Chicago River is visually appealing. I enjoy architecture and the city skyline views are very attractive. I try to participate as much as possible.

This is a beautiful & fun way to relax & learn of not only Chicago's architecture, but some of its history as well. It is narrated & really informative. They will take you out to Lake Michigan & way down the river with gorgeous views everywhere you look. A trip to Chicago is not complete without this fun, relaxing experience.

This tour is a must! Preface: the weather was a perfect 72 degrees and the views we're perfect. The tour is so interesting and the MC/Tour guide was brilliant. Never a dull moment and non-stop interesting info about Chicago. It's a perfect way to get the highlights of Chicago. The tour starts with the architectural river portion and ends with Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline (Including and ride through the locks). There is a full bar, good bathrooms, and a comfortable inside lounge.
