Love it! Great tour, the only downer was that random pedestrians would interrupt or be obnoxious when walking by. Aside from that it was great!

My whole team travelled to Chicago for an all employee meeting last week. Being that it was the first time we’ve all been together in 2 years, all the individual teams needed to have an activity. For my team, many of us had never been to Chicago and this tour came highly recommended. We learned a ton of spooky and gangster history while being able to sight see. I can’t imagine a better way to see a city when you only have a short amount of time to do so. This tour gave everyone a chance to be together and experience Chicago. Highly, highly recommend!

The tour was okay, way to much history that wasn't really the point of the tour. The tour guide was good, a little bit sassy.

This tour is a must for any of you that want to know more about the 20s through 40s tragic events in Chicago that eventually became part of history.

Andre was really wonderful!

We came to Chicago for a weekend and decided to do this tour. Andre, our guide, was very welcoming and knowledgeable about Chicago’s underworld and it’s past. The tour lasted about 1.5 hours and was the right amount of time. The stories of boats sinking in the Chicago river while walking along the river was very entertaining. There are several stops along the way that allow one to appreciate the history, architecture and beauty. I would highly recommend this tour as part of a visit to this beautiful city.

We enjoyed our afternoon learning some (often gruesome) history of Chicago. Conor was a great, knowledgeable tour guide bringing all the history to life. Enjoyable walk to each of the locations that will be memorable for every return trip. A fun tour at a reasonable price.
