It was wonderful! Your tour through the blue-green waters of its canals (yes, like Venice but wide) with skyscrapers soaring up all around us was nothing short of magnificent.

It was fun and educational but the river cruise was too long. It wasn't exactly what I expected but I did learn a lot. But the river cruise was too long but it might have felt longer because our 11 mo old baby was very fussy.
On the bus tour we got a glance at Obama's house, A house that came out in Ferris Bueller, some great views of the city by either the aquarium or the planetarium.
