What we’ll do

This is THE ORIGINAL boat + walking tour in Chicago — don't accept imitations! :) A unique, fun way to experience Chicago in the best ways possible: by boat on the Chicago River and on foot through one of Chicago’s many history-packed neighborhoods. First, you’ll jump on a boat with your guide, and you’ll enjoy breathtaking views along the Chicago River. After this, you’ll go beyond what…

What else you should know

Please leave yourself enough time to find your guide! Your guide will be waiting for you in the plaza that is SOUTH of the Langham Hotel (you'll see chairs and a sculpture of men holding umbrellas). NOTE: This is not a typical "gangsters" tour! This is "Al Capone light," and about REAL stories.

You'll get to experience a Chicago River tour -- not just a boat ride, but a personally guided tour with an expert guide along the way. You'll get to visit famous landmarks and hidden neighborhood gems on foot in River North. Finally, you'll end near the historic Water Tower, with a beautiful old church where Al Capone's rival used to sing and pray!
