Our tour guide John was incredibly knowledgeable, entertaining, and provided an awesome experience with stories of Chicago's famous gangsters and how the city came to be. It was also a great sight-seeing tour and a must do if you're in the city.

The Crime and Mob Bus Tour was really great. My son and I went and the guide was funny and very informative about all things mob and crime related. So worth the money.

We enjoyed the tour. After living in Chicago 30 years we learned a lot of new Chicago crime facts. Our teens and French exchange student had fun too! The tour guide was great, had a loud clear speaking voice and the right level of energy, humor, sarcasm.

Much better than we thought. My 17-year-old wanted to do the tour, and we parents went along with low expectations. Actually, Jay, the tour guide kept the tour interesting and had a fun tone of voice that was easy to listen to while you were looking out the windows. There were numerous times we got off the bus (about 4) and had the chance for photos at cool spots. The bus was comfortable but completely full for the 4 pm tour. Jay managed the crowd very well and it wasn't an issue at any of the stops.

We have had family in Chicago for 40 years and have done nearly all of the “touristy” things. We wanted to do something different this time, so we chose this tour. Well worth our time. The hour and a half length was perfect. LEAH WAS GREAT! We learned more details about stories that we had already heard, and also learned some new stories. Stopping at the various sights was eye opening. This tour is for history buffs, maybe not first time visitors - only because Chicago has so much to do! Did I say we loved Leah?! She was crazy personable and enthusiastic., made the tour.
