Took the Sunday evening jazz cruise on June 24th. Reservations through hotel concierge; was told to be 1 hour early. As it was a beautiful evening, we walked a few blocks to the boat, paid for our tickets (option for an all you can drink bracelet at a great price) and waited at the boat. We were the first in line. We waited, enjoyed the evening. Boarded about 10 minutes or so before 6. Chose a table in the rear of the top deck while the jazz band began playing. Bar one floor down; nice bartender, generous drinks at very reasonable prices and free pretzels. The boat filled, we took off, beautiful evening as the sun went down. Band played the entire trip and were not too loud. I felt we could talk without being rude. Looking at the buildings, architecture, people, other boats, music in the background, wow!!. Crew was friendly and helpful. For the price, a lot of bang for the buck. Check the weather; may need a sweater.

Amazing way to see the city and learn about how it was rebuilt after the atrocious fire that leveled the city. Boat was right on time and very clean. Ticket agent could not have been sweeter. And our docent talked for 80 minutes non stop in 90 degree heat. How did she do that? Simply a wonderful tour

This was one of the best evening boat trips out of the three that I have taken in Chicago. I have to thank my friend, Joe Cibula, for recommending this! I was able to take an out of town guest, who also enjoyed it! The boat traveled down the Chicago river and out onto Lake Michigan and the view of the city was spectacular! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see the city, especially at night!
