There's no better way to explore Chicago than from the deck of a Shoreline Sightseeing boat!

Discover why Shoreline Sightseeing's Architecture River Tour, which was rated the #1 Tour in America by TripAdvisor, is a must-do adventure for both locals and visitors from around the world! Led by Shoreline’s experienced, educated, and entertaining docents, this 75-minute private tour includes details, facts, and the history of more than 40 buildings that line the Chicago River.

Shoreline’s 40-minute Classic Lake Tour dives into the history of the buildings that make up Chicago’s iconic skyline, the historical significance of Navy Pier, and what lies beneath Lake Michigan.
