Tour Details

Give your legs a break and take an exciting tour down the Chicago River to take in all the city's most spectacular sights. This Chicago architecture tour, narrated by a live guide, will bring you up close to the breathtaking skyscrapers and structures for which the city is renowned. Have your camera handy: you’ll be passing by buildings constructed by world-famous architects like Jeanne Gang and Helmut Jahn while learning all about Chicago’s storied past.

Your Chicago architecture cruise takes you through all three branches of the Chicago River, a system of rivers that runs roughly 156 miles and links the Great Lakes with the Mississippi Valley. Fun fact: this water is dyed green each year around St. Patrick’s Day to commemorate the holiday; 40 pounds of powered vegetable dye is used to turn the river green. Your professional guide on this Chicago cruise will share these anecdotes with you along with plenty of interesting tidbits about the surrounding architecture.

Home to more than 1,200 high-rises, Chicago is considered the birthplace of the skyscraper. The first steel-framed skyscraper was built here in 1865; it has since been replaced by the LaSalle National Bank Building. The city also contains the tallest building in the United States, the Willis Building (formerly the Sears Tower). The 108-story structure was once the tallest building in the entire world, but it’s now currently ranked seventh-tallest. You’ll get to see these jaw-dropping architectural wonders and more throughout your Chicago cruise.

For a relaxing, scenic view of Chi-Town’s finest structural achievements, book this Chicago tour today. See the city's towering structures from the comfort of a leisurely river cruise.
