I enjoyed every bit of it I didn't know this was available until checking around for ways to get around this makes it so easy to get around and enjoy the sights from the water and better than having to walk so far and transferring a bunch of times on the cat so very enjoyable

The water taxi is a great way to see Chicago at the river level and downtown buildings off of Lake Michigan. We have been to downtown Chicago many times but this is the first time getting around to Navy Pier and the Field Museum by water taxi .It was relaxing and very enjoyable.
