Recognized two years in a row as one of the best boat tours in North America (USA Today Readers’ Choice 2022 Awards), the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady kicked off its 2023 season which marks its 30th anniversary. It is the only cruise narrated by CAC-certified volunteer docents who thrill guests with their knowledge about Chicago.

Lauded as a “must-do” activity, the CAC River Cruise glides down all three branches of the Chicago River, providing guests with an unobstructed, 360-degree view of the city’s wide variety of architectural styles, including art deco, neoclassicism, mid-century modernism and postmodernism.

To enhance accessibility, the CAC River Cruise now provides complimentary language translation services—making it the only Chicago architecture River Cruise to offer this service. Guests have the opportunity to listen to a pre-recorded tour narration on their smartphone in four different languages, including French. The translation service is accessible by downloading a free app that connects to a special wi-fi network onboard.
