Take a Cruise With Chicago’s First Lady CruisesAugust 30, 2018
When TripAdvisor names the top tour in Chicago and it also lands as one of the top ten in the US, you should believe the hype. Chicago First Lady Cruises hosts the Chicago Architecture Foundations River Cruise, and their excursions are a must for both Chicago natives and visitors alike.
Aside from seeing the stunning city from the beauty of the water, it’s the trained volunteer tour guides that make the difference on these exceptional tours. They are extremely knowledgeable in all 50+ of the buildings that they point out along the tour, and pack each tour with tons of interesting facts and anecdotes. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours as you lazily sail down the river on the rooftop deck of the boat. All daytime cruises are $47, or choose their $52 twilight cruise to admire the city as lights just begin to flicker on. Tours depart rain or shine each day, and private rentals are also available for groups of 20 or more.
