Features: Shoreline's Architecture River Tours are a great way to explore the cradle of modern American architecture, Chicago! You can find a variety of tours offered by Shoreline Sightseeing in Chicago, including three different Architecture River Tours. These exciting Chicago cruises have knowledgeable, entertaining guides who are passionate about Chicago's world famous architecture and will share the inside stories behind the city's famous skyscrapers.

Why We Go: Shoreline Sightseeing offers 3 great ways to get an overview of Chicago's famous architecture, and see the city from a very different point-of-view, the water.

  • Architecture River Tours: This seventy-five minute cruise takes you up all three branches of the Chicago River showcasing the amazing history and architecture of Chicago.
  • Architecture/Fireworks Cruise: These cruises run Wednesday and Saturday nights during the summer. They include a guided architecture tour, but end with a bang with an up-close view of Navy Pier's famous fireworks show.
  • Night Architecture River Tours: Get the same information as you would on the daytime river tours, but from a slightly different perspective! The view is strikingly different with the skyline lit up against a star-filled sky. These tours are great for a fun date night, or as a relaxing and very entertaining way to keep on sightseeing in Chicago after a long day of touring on foot.

Inside Knowledge: The nighttime Chicago Architecture River Tours have a cash bar, and the drinks are very reasonably priced.
