When my best friend was here in October, we decided to try the Shoreline Sightseeing Classic Lake Tour because she wanted to see the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan. The Classic Lake Tour was the shortest (40 minutes) and the cheapest boat tour we have done in Chicago. It was audio narrated, which is not my favorite. It’s harder for me to pay attention to an audio than a person.
That said, we still had a great time. The weather was absolutely perfect, and we learned interesting facts about important Chicago landmarks. The tour gave a good history of Chicago and provided an overview of some of the architecture along the lake. The views of the skyline were spectacular on such a gorgeous day.
If you are looking for a short and cheap tour on Lake Michigan, the Shoreline Sightseeing Classic Lake Tour is a good option. It is my least favorite of the tours we have done, but I didn’t feel like I wasted my money.
