We had a great tour with "Bubba" who made the trip fun and exciting. The water was a little gross with tons of debris floating along side you. Make sure to bring water and plenty of sun screen as you will get burnt even on...More

My husband and I almost let a few bad reviews scare us off last night for the Fourth of July- we are so glad we didn't! We happened on Kayak Chicago while we were looking for a unique way to celebrate the 4th of July....More

We have been kayaking, prior, as a family, in other states. This time we decided to go kayaking with guides on an architectural tour on the Chicago River. We had a great time! We had 3 guides go out with us. They were very professional...More
