Overview

Kansas City was a favorite spot of the “old timers.” The Gangster Tour puts you hot on the trail of this city's most notorious Goodfellas. Don't make us twist your arm. Grab your chopper, hop on the bus and you’ll be immersed in a melodramatic look at mob homes and hangouts, turf wars and infamous crimes like the Union Station massacre.Tours board at Union Station's West Transit Pavilion. For reservations or for ticket information call 816-471-1234. We’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.

We had several team members come to Kansas City for meetings, and we booked the Gangster Tour as a team outing. The driver and tour guide were great, and lived up to their characters. There was a lot of good information provided, and even though...More

The Gangster Tour is a great idea. It's too bad that the concept has not been supported by hiring the appropriate tour guide. There is a cute video that plays intermittently during the trip, describing lifestyles of some of Kansas City's colorful natives. Many tour...More

We've lived in the area for many years, so it was very interesting hearing the (often shady) history of places we pass frequently. Prepare for a light-hearted lesson presented via talented tour guide, video and a little drama. This tour is so packed with information,...More
