This was a great tour, if you what to learn about the Chicago mobsters and see where a number of infamous events took place. Our tour guide know her stuff and it was all very interesting. A tour not to be missed when visiting Chicago, the 'home' of some of the most notorious names of the underworld in the 20's & 30's

Our tour guide, Mitch was very knowledgeable. He was very friendly and even funny. It was nice to get off the bus at key spots and be able to take pictures. The length of time the tour took was perfect - just under 2 hours. I think one of the best parts of the tour was getting off at Harry Carey restaurant and going to the basement to see the tunnel and the authentic newspaper articles on the criminals.

Chicago Crime Tour was a lot of fun! The guide was very knowledgeable. It was neat to see the 'ole stomping grounds of Dillinger and Capone, and to learn a little bit of Chicago's crime history.

Dont bother this tour takes you to a lane that is the same as any other a couple of empty lots that used to have buildings on them and a round trip of a couple of inner suburbs if you did a bit of research and used a ventra card you would get a far better experience and probably see stuff you wont get on this tour at a quarter the price
