Can you imagine how much fun it would be to take a Chicago sightseeing cruise tour and see the city from the river? The Chicago Architecture Center partnered with the Chicago First Lady to offer tours. So, you can get a close-up view of the city from the river, including shots of the Harry Weese River Cottages.

Chicago Sightseeing Tours on the River

Starting from the Chicago River Walk, your tour takes you along all 3 branches of the Chicago River. Take a peek at the Art Institute of Chicago while you’re on the river, and then you will travel toward Goose Island. See the Historic Montgomery Ward Complex and the Chicago Tribune Freedom Center. While traveling, a guide narrates the experience, teaching you about the city’s history.

Partnered With the Chicago Architecture Center

While you’re on the boat, tour guides will talk to you about the city’s past, and they’re well-experienced. Nobody can lead tours without completing hundreds of training hours, making them experts. Ask them about the Willis Tower when you’re going down the south side of the river, and they’ll tell you all about it.

Open-Air Upper Deck

Everyone loves getting to see the city while enjoying the fresh outdoor air on top of the boat, and now you get a chance. Sitting on the upper deck of the Chicago First Lady is an experience you don’t want to miss, so ask about tickets soon.
