    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.

    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.

    I guess our driver was an Obama fan, for he mainly talked about him and where his hangouts were

    It was hard to understand the bus driver. I would have liked to stop and get off the bus a little more.

    Guide was very knowledgeable, spoke a little too fast at times but well worth it.

    There were four of us, and we all totally enjoyed the trip. The driver was very informative and really knew what he was talking about. We're looking forward to another tour.
