  • Pretty cool!

  • This was fun and informative. Highly recommended if you are in Chicago.

  • This trip is not worth the money. Not much Crime or Mob stuff to see. This winds up being a very expensive 90 minute bus ride that travels about 2 miles. Our tour guide Anna had a plesant voice but use falke laughter to punctuate most of the points she was attempting to make.

  • Loved it - driving round in a plush limo bus, with all the history of the mob and the Chicago gangsters - what can beat that as a way to spend an afternoon.

  • A really fun and informative little tour. We had a fantastic guide - seriously, we hardly ever looked out of the windows because our guide was a pure joy to watch and listen to. While on location he would involve us in a bit of a role-play, which was a really nice touch. The A/C on the bus is fierce so remember to wear something warm.

  • It was ok. You look at an alley, a church, and a restaurant. Really, find something else to do.

  • The crime and mob tour was such a perfect way to spend a drizzly Saturday. My mom and I booked this tour last minute as we were trying to find something to do since the weather was other than perfect, and this tour couldn't have been better. Our tour guide, Sheila, was so much fun and so informative. This was such a great way to learn more about Chicago's storied past and see some of the sites I've always read about.

  • Would highly recommend this tour. Our guide was fantastic.

  • Fun, interesting, and learned Chicago Crime history! Nice air-conditioned bus with outlets to charge your phone.

  • It was cold and had two older gentlemen with canes and were glad it was mostly riding with a few stops and not a lot of walking. LOTS of great info. Loved our girl Anna! Great Driver too!
