    Very informative tour. A nice way to warm up while walking around the loop and learning about the history of American’s worst gangster. Andre is a charismatic and knowledgeable guide who is both fun and enthusiastic. He is also very good at keeping track of a large group. Very loud and easily understood. Highly recommend.

    Alan kept the pace going on a chilly Chigago day, flipping between AL Capone history and grisly Chicago history as we walked. Half way was a stop inside the beautuful Palmer House to warm up. A great tour!

    Learned some very interesting historical facts! Our tour guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Being someone who has visited Chicago many time, it was a great way to really take in some of the beautiful architecture and history. Although I didn’t see any ghosts, the stories spooked me!
