lots of walking, like lots!
Oct 2021
It wasn't the worst tour ever but definitely not the best. It does state in the description that it is a lot of walking so they don't lie about that. I do not feel like I learned a lot, he talked briefly about Al Capone and like 3 other gangsters. He really didn't talk about anything with ghosts and when he did it was more of a you can go look yourself. I wouldn't waste the money personally. Everything he said could be easily googled. I will say it was cool to walk around the city.

Not just another walking tour
Oct 2021 • Couples
Connor was a great host and showed us a side of Chicago's dark past that was definitely morbid, but also helped pave the way for the fantastic tour showing the innovative side that arose out of all the tragedy.
Definitely a must for Chicago.

A great way to learn more about the city's past!
Oct 2021
Our host was very knowledgeable about the City and recounted the stories very well. I learned quite a bit about a city I've worked in for 20 years! It would have been great to go into more of the buildings but overall really great way to spend a few hours!

Amazing for tourists and Chicago natives!
Oct 2021 • Business
I’ve lived in Chicago for 4 years and never knew it’s spooky, tragic, and rich history. The tour was so interesting and informative. The tour guides are knowledge, personable, and entertaining. It was such a cool way to see the loop! I would 10/10 recommend for someone just visiting the city or has lived here for a while.

The tourguide was very knowledgeable, and the route seemed fairly compact. The city noise in general made it hard to hear sometimes, but that's expected.

Don’t take this tour
Our tour guide, Adam seemed nice but his personality was over the top. He is an aspiring actor and his attempt to impress us fell flat. We left the tour after about 20 minutes. I was expecting more gangster information. Maybe it was our tour guide but I would highly recommend the Architecture River Cruise.

Great history lesson about the gangsters activities during prohibition in Chicago
Oct 2021
Learned interesting, little known historical facts about Chicago during that period of time. Our tour guide was upbeat, enthusiastic and was able to engage a large group and project her voice so all of us could hear! Fun way to spend an evening on a Fall night.
