This tour was a lot of fun! We got to learn about Chicago crime and see some of the places where important events happened. The bus was comfortable and the guide was informative!
We did this tour last week and had Ben as our guide, cant rate it enough what a funny and very informative tour we had. We booked it on spec after seeing an advert for it in one of the pamphlets in our hotel and were so glad we did. Learnt things we would never have known and found out that there were two iconic buildings right near our hotel. Would thoroughly recommend.
The tour was very informative. If you're into these types of things this is definitely up your alley. I felt I was apart of a documentary on the gangster and crime history of Chicago. The guide, Ben was really knowledgeable and humorous. He's great actually! We loved it. You get off the bus a few times and even learn some general Chicago history and facts.
This tour is worth every penny. It was about 1 hr and 45 min full of history and great stories of the mob characters of Chicago. I come from out of country but wouldn't have missed this for the world. I was fortunate to have John as the tour guide and my guess is he doubles as a stand-up comic. He was great. I liked that we stopped and got off the bus a few times to see special spots first hand. The bus was comfortable and the driver knew what he was doing. Congrats to all for a job well done.
