“Interesting Tour of the City”

Weird Chicago Tours
Ranked #57 of 183 Tours in Chicago
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I liked the history within the tour: Dillinger, Congress Hotel, HH Holmes, Eastland Disaster, St. Valentine's Day, Iroquois Theatre, etc. We took the 10 pm tour, so it got pretty late, but the tour was still a lot of fun. Our tour guide, Jen, was great as well. Go on this tour if you are interested in Chicago history mixed with a little bit of the paranormal.

Had a great time on this tour. Can't wait to go back and try the Gangster Tour. We stopped at the Congress Hotel for a beverage and bathroom stop as well as another ghost story. Had a wonderful time. Learned a few things about the gangsters, serial killers and ghost stories of the city. The tour was about 3 hours in a very comfortable bus. There was just enough people in a smaller bus. It was very comfortable. The guide was great and very animated. Will use this company again.

Really good tour. Was 3hrs including a stop at congress hotel for a drink. Very enthusiastic guide who brought the gangster history to life. Most of landmarks have been demolished but they still had a heap of really good stories. Also photos etc of the gangsters. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a bit of a different part of Chicago history

This was a great tour that helped my fiancé and myself see a good part of Chicago with a vary knowledgable tour guide. I usually don't like these types of attractions but when I read it had mob history I thought it could be fun. While it is tough for the guide to point out buildings from history, as many of them no longer exist or have been replaced, the tour guide (Eric) did a fantastic job of helping people visualize what life was like back in time through his words and showmanship. It was a little slow at times and the 3 hours didn't necessarily fly by but it was great to hear about the history of Chicago while also touring areas we probably wouldn't have seen if we didn't do the tour. Overall it was a great experience, Eric was fantastic, and while I may not do this every time I am in Chicago it is something I would consider doing again (I would probably do the paranormal tour or the private pub crawl).
