  • This was a beautiful cruise around a small section of the lake. Great views of Chicago and the Navy Pier. Fantastic photo opportunities. I would have liked to have gone further out into Lake Michigan.

  • Ok for the price but nothing much than cruising the boat for 40 minutes.

  • Staff very helpful, smooth ride, interesting narration. Worthwhile and enjoyable.

  • Tour was lots of fun. Would recommend the tour to families. Beautiful view of the city. Best prices booking through Viattor. Best seats on top of boat.

  • It was such a relaxing cruise. Vey informative!

  • It was Nice !

  • We had a fun time on the cruise. The kids did not fall asleep and the view was beautiful. Our guide was not bad but could make the history more fun with interesting stories even the kids could enjoy. The kids ages range from 15 to 5 so it is a large age gap.

  • Great boat tour. The time went very fast and great scenery.

  • This was the worst cruise tour ever. The crew did not stop all the kids running wild. Twice We were afraid that small children could fall over board. We moved 4 times to avoid the noise. We could not hear the speaker describe the shoreline buildings. We filed a written complaint with the manage

  • It was very enjoyable, informative and refreshing. The views were spectacular, the weather was perfect. This tour was one of the highlights of our Chicago vacation.
