  • Operagolf / La Habra
    “This is my 8th time on a Chicago architectural river cruise and this was by far the most informative and biggest bang for your buck.”
  • DrCumbrian / Tripadvisor
    “The best guide on our whole USA trip. We took the Architecture tour where the boat meandered in between all of the incredible buildings of the city with the guide knowing EVERYTHING about each building; its style, age, height, architect, cost, purpose, owner ….. Quite brilliant!”
  • Allie K / Tripadvisor
    “I've done several of the architecture cruises since my family moved to Chicago, and this is the best one yet! ”
  • Alice I / Oklahoma
    “If you only have time for one sight-seeing event while in Chicago, do this. We really have no great interest in architecture, but this tour came highly recommended and we did not regret it. ”
  • Augie R. / Yelp
    “My wife and I very much enjoyed the Chicago Line Cruise jazz cruise... My spouse said this was one of the favorite things she has done in Chicago since moving here in the past year, and I agree. I am a jazz snob, and ... I was very pleased with the music offered by the Geordie Kelly group. He's a fine jazz guitarist, and his band was great.”
