They are the best!

The guide and the bus driver were very informative. They also had a lot of jokes. They have a cool raffle on the bus where you can win prizes, which is a nice touch.

My group was split. Some of the group LOVED it, others thought it was just "ok". I enjoyed it, except for the derogatory term used to describe little people. That made me check out part way thru the tour. It is interesting though hokey. There are gunshot sound effects during the bus ride that you're supposed to duck from. As... More

The seats were really comfortable in the small bus, the volume was great ( but he spoke a bit too fast). However, he had such a great handle on all the trivia that it was really fun. It was a great substite for going to a history museum.

We loved this tour. Fun and informative. You don't get off the bus but that doesn't matter. They play good music and do fun stuff. It's just good to see where these things all took place and gives context to the story while you are driving through the various neighbourhoods. Would recommend it.

Johnny Rocco was our guide and he was very good. Highly entertaining tour with plenty of information not limited to the organised crime of the city.

Though definitely worth taking once, I was slightly disappointed by our Gangster Tour. The docent was funny and informative, and his appearance and Chicago accent were spot on. But most of the various spots we visited were nondescript and uninteresting. The tour needs to make at least one stop where we leave the bus and visit an old speakeasy and... More

We took my boyfriends sister for her birthday and learned many interesting fun facts about gangster history. Also many Chicago we did not know even though we have lived here for years! Great guides!

Very worthwhile tour that was well worth the money. Very informative and undertaken in a fun, interactive way with "Matches Malone" and "Shoulders" the wheelman. Good way to spend 2 hrs.

We are pleased that you found the tour informative AND fun. We want to present a tour full of interesting history but at the same time keep it entertaining with the taste of 1920s comedy. Thank you for the compliment. We will let Matches Malone and Shoulders know how much you enjoyed their tour. More

Great tour, full of interesting info that will stick with me for ever because of the way it was presented. In gangster dress "Matches and wheelman "Rocko" gave their all to show us the underbelly of Chicago. My son and I had a great laugh at some of the "best" worst jokes we have heard. Coming from Australia it takes... More
