Combined Lake and River Tour


Tour Information

Wendella’s signature tour since 1935 is a comprehensive overview of Chicago, offering breathtaking views of our magnificent skyline and up-close perspective from the Chicago River. Departing from the Wendella Dock at the Wrigley Building, this 90 minute tour features a live narration highlighting Chicago’s rich history and architectural heritage. Your expert architecture tour guide will lead you through the main branch of the Chicago River and through the Chicago Lock out to Lake Michigan. This tour is kid-friendly and will entertain everyone, particularly those with a desire to experience the beauty of Chicago’s remarkable skyline.

 

As another way of giving back to the community, a portion of the ticket price goes directly toward the construction and development of the Chicago Riverwalk, scheduled for completion in 2016.
