Чем вы займетесь

Capture Instagram-friendly photography angles!

On this tour route, you'll have the opportunity to experience Chicago in the best two ways: by boat on the Chicago River and on foot through one of Chicago’s unique neighborhoods, Chinatown. We call these tours “Surf & Turf” tours because you don’t have to worry about choosing a boat tour OR a walking tour: we’re giving you both in ONE tour!

First, after meeting near the tail end of the famous Magnificent Mile, you’ll take part in the most popular tourist activity in Chicago (and the country!) by jumping on a boat with your guide, and you’ll enjoy breathtaking views along the Chicago River on a relaxing and informative 35-minute ride. Your expert guide will tell you all about the architecture and history along the way using a personal sound system with discreet individual listening devices. Most tourists stay in the city center, but this tour only starts in the center and then guides you away from that beaten path in order to encourage you to venture beyond what most tourists see!

After our relaxing and informative cruise down the river, we’ll spend the rest of our tour exploring Chinatown, learning about its history, its architecture, and — perhaps best of all — its food. NOTE: This is not a food-tasting tour, though we purposely end in Chinatown so that you can spend some time shopping in the many (very affordable) shops and dining at one of the many restaurants.

I am the owner & head tour guide at Chicago's #1-rated walking tour business on TripAdvisor, Inside Chicago Walking Tours. After several years in Chicago's river tour industry, I started my own walking tour business in 2014 in order to be able to show people the street-level and interior views of Chicago's world-famous architecture. Not only is my company ranked #1 tour out of more than 300 on TripAdvisor, it's also been featured in numerous online publications as a "best of Chicago" tour. I'm also responsible for creating the tours and training the guides who earned Chicago's architecture river tour a spot in the 25 BEST TOURS IN THE WORLD on TripAdvisor. My company’s tours are the opposite of the big-brand, scripted tours. We specialize in truly unique, personalized experiences of Chicago. Thank you for supporting small business!

Где вы побываете

This tour will start near the Magnificent Mile, but then you'll be guided away from the crowds, enjoying a relaxing, informative boat trip down the Main and South Branches of the Chicago River. After this 35-minute boat tour, you'll be guided through the very different parts of this unique neighborhood -- what we call "New" and "Old" Chinatown -- before ending at a great jumping-off point for you to find somewhere great to eat after the tour!

Great tour combining walking and boat tour. You get to hear your very Chicago “architectural tour” but also have an opportunity to visit Chinatown. Tour continently ends at the loop where you can carry on exploring Millennial Park. Nice way to get acquainted with some lesser visited neighborhoods but that’s what true travel is about!

This tour was very unique and gave us a different view of Chicago. I like the combined water/walking/train to really get a feel and see some cool architecture and spots. Honestly though, our tour guide, Adam, came off as very irritable/annoyed from the get-go. We were walking towards our meeting point (we were on time) and we were looking at this statue and he looked at our group and made a sarcastic comment about him being the tour guide, “look at his hat.” He was rude to some other guests and like I said, just seemed irritable as well. He seemed to be in better spirits towards the end of the tour, but it kind of started things off on a sour note for me. Still a very good tour, and I was glad to be able to go experience it!

We took this tour since we wanted to do the Chicago river tour. This tour included the boat ride on the river, Chinatown walk around, and the train ride back. We really enjoyed the tour since the guide was very knowledgeable about Chicago.

Great tour! We liked the variety of the tour, had a little bit of everything. We liked the information Hillary gave us. She was also flexible when we were a couple minutes late. She gave us some options during the tour to pick from.

I had the tour with Hilary today and she was super friendly! She clearly knows Chicago well and made my friend and I feel extra special. I had a great time and I would recommend this experience to anyone.

Amazing Tour! *Please do not stop reading my review after only the first paragraph* I give it a 5/5 for overall knowledge and expertise and a 3/5 for crowd management. The only deduction in stars for this tour comes from our first impression of Adam. When we first arrived to the meetup point, Adam seemed frazzled. I'm not sure what the reason may have been. For me, it breaks down to the tone in which he either gave commands or posed questions within the first 10 minutes to the group. The tour starts out by crossing 1 street down to the river dock where you can board your ferry. As we were walking there, he tried to corral the group so as to keep us together which any tour guide would do but the tone in which he did it comes off as a bit rude or abrasive. I can deal with that. He may be frazzled, whatever. However, when we get to the dock, he hurriedly asks us if we would be more comfortable boarding the ferry now or wait 20 minutes for a double decker ferry. Nobody answers... obviously; because we are a group of 11 tourists that has no idea what the difference between the two ferries are, how long it will take to setup your sound system, or even what the heck your sound system is that you just told us about two seconds ago. Then, it turned out some people didn't hear the question, people were confused which is once again not a bad situation. It can be defused by repeating the question but then he says (and I laugh at this now because I admit: I like the guy,) "We're boarding the double decker in 20 minutes because no one answered." And, I'm thinking, "WHAT! Bro, relax!" Once he sets up the sound system (individual ear phones connected to his microphone via bluetooth,) Adam finally relaxes which is great because I was starting to dread 3 hours in this situation. Adam turns out to be probably the most knowledgeable tour guide I've had in about 5 years. He has an expertise in architecture and history as it relates to Chicago that can only be fueled by a genuine passion for the subjects. My girlfriend and I both really enjoyed everything he had to say. He pointed to nearly every single building on the river and could cite their name, architect, developer, history, and influence on the city. The walk through Chinatown and downtown also had some great information. If the experience had started somehow on the boat instead of how it did, I 100% believe this would have been a 5-star review but I think first impressions matter. With that being said, I am so glad that I stuck it out with the group so I don't see this review as a deterrent for future customers but rather constructive feedback on how our crowd was managed. This is a MUST-DO experience!!
