A note about this tour
Reduced occupancy on the tour bus. If you are sick or have been with someone who is sick please do not attend the tour. No food or drinks on the bus.


Some of the world’s most notorious criminals, mobsters, and gangsters bamboozled their way through Chicago. Escape into the city’s criminal underworld as you investigate stories about Al Capone, The Untouchables, the Chicago Mob, and more. From a luxury coach, see the sites of storied crime scenes including Biograph Theatre, Holy Name Cathedral, and the St Valentine's Day Massacre, one of Chicago's most notorious murders. Snap photos of the historic criminal courthouse, and hop on-and-off the coach to walk the path that Chicago gangsters John Dillinger and Hymie Weiss followed just before their deaths.

Very good tour guides who were informative and funny! Tour allows you to get off several times to stretch your legs and take photos. Certainly an interesting tour of Chicago and worth the time and money.

Fascinating history of the gangster era. Especially liked John Dillinger’s story. Found out no one found Al Capone’s hidden money.
