Chicago’s architectural heritage is considered to be among the finest in the world, and the Chicago River provides the ultimate setting to view these magnificent structures.

Starting at the Wendella Dock an expert architectural guide will lead you through all three branches of the Chicago River. You’ll see the new and rehabbed residential buildings on the north branch, the office buildings including the Willis Tower on the south branch and the range of architectural styles on the main branch which rose after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
