  • Chicago: 1.5-Hour Romantic Sunset Cruise

    1. Chicago: 1.5-Hour Romantic Sunset Cruise

    Start your sunset cruise on the Chicago River at Michigan Avenue. Make your way along the main branch of the river towards Lake Michigan before entering the Chicago Locks, a modern engineering marvel, that will transfer the vessel onto the great Lake Michigan.

Your local tour guide will give a very brief commentary along the Chicago River and entrance to Lake Michigan, but most of the 1.5-hour cruise is spent without narration, leaving you to watch the sun put on a beautiful display with the City skyline. Admire the many angles of the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan, one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world. Capture magical views of Chicago's twin super-skyscrapers, the famous Willis (formerly Sears) Tower and the John Hancock Building. You'll also ge...

The experience was out of this world! Highly recommend this activity & of course the Tilt! You will not be disappointed! It is VERY convenient to have the voucher ready to go within the app. The only downfall was the drink you receive with the purchase. The menu is very limited. Other then that, amazing experience.

Amazing and beautiful scenery while on the tour!! To see the beautiful Chicago Skyline as the sun set, was pleasing to my eyes. The tour guide was quite entertaining, which was an added bonus in the learning of Chicago's History. The tour was definitely worth taking!!
