"This was a great 90 minute tour of the Chicago river and lake Michigan sights. The tour guide was knowledgeable and gave a running lecture of points of interest and history of the city. You go thru "locks" entering and leaving lake Michigan. It was a fabulous vantage point to see Chicago. Price is reasonable."
"After looking at various boat tours, we finally decided to proceed with this company and did the River and Lakes tour. FANTASTIC!! One part is covering historical buildings and the second part goes out to the lake. Before you leave Chicago, you have to do a boat tour. Note, other tour companies did not have 2 levels therefore you did not have the option to relieve yourself from the hot sun and sit in a shaded area. The boat itself is very clean, with well maintained bathrooms. Great job Wendella! We'll be back!!"
"If you are at all interested in Architecture, Chicago history or just amazing views of Chicago, take the Signature River & Lake tour! The tour guide was great! He shared so much information and history with us. He was authentic and enthusiastic in his delivery too. I would definitely recommend Wendella and would go again."
"Wendella’s signature tour since 1935."
