1-Aug-20 – Based on millions of online reviews from travelers worldwide, an architecture tour along the Chicago River has been ranked the top travel experience in the United States.

Shoreline Sightseeing’s Architecture River Tour has also been ranked the second-best day cruise in the world.

TripAdvisor announced its 2020 Best of the Best  awards on Friday. The travel website says the reviews, opinions, and ratings were collected last year before the pandemic.

Amy Hartnett, Director of Sales & Marketing for Shoreline Sightseeing, said the awards are “a tribute to the city of Chicago’s world-famous architecture” as well as the tour guides and crew members on Shoreline’s ten tour boats.

The pandemic has not stopped the Chicago River tours, but passengers are required to wear masks and follow social distancing markings when they board.
