Tours & Cruises Information

Wendella Sightseeing Boats is Chicago's Original Architecture Tour, offering a variety of distinctive narrated tours, all focusing on Chicago's rich architectural heritage and history. Whether you're looking for an in-depth tour or a brief overview of Chicago, Wendella has many tour options to choose from. The Chicago River Architecture Tour leads you through all three branches of the Chicago River, focusing on the wide range of styles designed by notable architects. Wendella's signature Combined Lake and River Tour is a comprehensive overview of Chicago, offering up-close views along the Chicago River and Chicago's stunning skyline from Lake Michigan. For a more casual, family-oriented tour, Wendella offers a 45-minute Chicago River Experience Tour, exploring the main branch and south branch of the Chicago River. A less informative, but remarkable way to experience the beauty of Chicago is aboard the Chicago at Sunset Cruise or the Lake Michigan Fireworks Cruise, where you will discover the dramatic views of Chicago's skyline from Lake Michigan. No matter which tour you choose, Wendella is dedicated to providing you with a unique and unforgettable experience of Chicago. 

Tours are offered seven days a week, March through December.

Tours depart from the Wendella Dock at 400 N Michigan Avenue and from the Wendella Dock at Trump Tower, located West of the Wrigley Building at the lower level of Kinzie and Rush.
