    There are amazing facts that you will learn on this tour. Most of them start from Navy Pier. You get your money's worth of knowledge. Maybe even more.

    First to Review

    The Chicago Architecture Foundation's cruise is worth every cent and is the #1 thing I recommend doing. Tickets are about $35 and the boats fill up, so book in advance. Also there are several cruises that run, so make sure you get the right one. So interesting, but not ideal for kids who can't sit still - the boat gets full and people need to stay in their seats. In the 6 years I lived in Chicago I did this tour at least 3 times.
