What's included

  • Tours depart from Urban Kayak's dock located just east of the Columbus Street bridge. Sunset tours depart in the early evening and offer "stellar" (get it?) views of the setting sun as it illuminates the buildings along the riverbank as well as the river itself.
  • Historical tours set out in the morning and mid-afternoon and last up to 2 hours, led by a paddling docent who will discuss the architectural significance of the buildings along the river as well as the city's recently remodeled Riverwalk.
Travelzoo Tip: After your tour, stop by the nearby Cyrano's Cafe & Wine Bar for charcuterie, cheese and glasses of wine for over 50% off with this offer.

It was a brilliant day on the Chicago River. Sometime the river smelled like sewage and other times like Chocolate!

The place in Chinatown is hard to find and it's wrong on Google Maps but once you get there it's all good.
