What People are Saying

We really enjoyed our architecture tour of Chicago, while eating a wonderful lunch. It was so relaxing and the food was fantastic. - AzMarador
So we were able to get an architecture lesson while enjoying the most delicious chicken with some champagne. Second, I loved the glass-covered ship that was see-through from both the sides and on top. It allows to create an enjoyable experience whether it's a sunny or a rainy day. It almost felt like we were sailing in some winter-garden barge. The roof and the sides were made from clean glass and we could see all the buildings on the sides to the very top of all the skyscrapers. - Violeta H.
Amazing experience. The food and service were excellent! The bar choices were many, with top shelf liquors. - Zivalrene
