  • Chicago History & Highlights Tour
    We start at the Chicago Theater before heading off into the city. Our first stop is one of the best-preserved spaces in Chicago, featuring an unforgettable atrium. We’ll then make our way to the Chicago Pedway: an underground network of tunnels used by locals daily - especially during the Midwest winters. We then head to City Hall and, on most weekdays, head inside to see the classic interior design and architecture. Next, we’ll get to share a sweet treat: Chicago-style popcorn. Weather permitting, we’ll take a stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk while taking in views of several soaring buildings. From there, we’ll either hop on the ‘L’ train or a water taxi on the Chicago River (depending on the weather and time of year). Either option offers a uniquely Chicago experience! Once you’re back on solid ground, we’ll make our way to another delicious destination, enjoying views of the world-famous Wrigley Building along the way. Your second tasty confection is a locally-made chocolate! Finally, we’ll take a stroll through the beautiful lakefront parks along Michigan Avenue. We’ll end up in the picturesque Millennium Park, home to the iconic Bean sculpture, where your tour ends. Other things to note This tour runs rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for the weather. Personal shopping, additional food and drinks, and gratuity are not included.

  • Chicago Food Tour in River North
    We start with a very popular Chicago dish: the Chicago-style hot dog - which is taken very seriously by locals. Every Chicagoan has their own preference as to how the dog should be made, and you’ll get a chance to try my favorite version. Next up is the world-famous Chicago deep-dish pizza - an entire meal unto itself. I'll take you to a pizza place that’s an icon to Chicago natives to try the real deal for yourself. After you’ve filled up on pizza and hot dogs, we’ll stroll through two classic Chicago establishments. One is a uniquely Midwest phenomenon that is a sight to behold. The other stop is a restaurant born in Chicago and recognized by nearly everyone on earth - but this one is something special. We’ll then continue our tasting journey with a classic Chicago sandwich: Italian beef. You’ll sample this sandwich in a real city institution — no-frills decor included! Finally, it’s time for something sweet inside a truly local hangout. Here, you’ll enjoy a dessert, relax, and purchase a beverage of your choice. Other things to note This tour runs rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for the weather. Personal shopping, additional food and drinks, and gratuity are not included.

We will cast off and motor out to Lake Michigan where we will set sail to a favorable course. Bring your favorite food and drinks, listen to music, relax, and take in the views of our city’s iconic buildings from the lakefront. The courageous can try their hand at the helm and rigging the sails-Captain Greg is a volunteer sailing instructor for a local non-profit and enjoys sharing his knowledge. On hot days be sure to bring a bathing suit to swim in the lake to cool off. Please feel free to inquire about custom bookings. We have hosted engagements, bachelorette parties, corporate outings and many more memorable events! Other things to note New friends will join your booking unless you reserve the entire boat. We only wait 15 minutes for a late guest out of courtesy for timely guests. We only cancel for lightning and will refund everyone.
