Shoreline Sightseeing Architectural River Cruise

Tour the Chicago River past its architectural landmarks along the main branch of the Chicago River, up the north branch to the East Bank Club, and then south past the Sears Tower to the old Post Office Building. Led by professional guides you'll hear the dramatic story of Chicago’s rise from the ashes of the Great Fire of 1871 to become the home of the skyscraper and the cradle of modern American architecture. You'll see buildings by world-famous architects Mies van der Rohe, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, and Helmut Jahn. A map and architectural guide is yours to keep. All of the tour boats have easy boarding ramps and are accessible to people with disabilities.
