It was a very good tour and I learned alot. It was interesting learning parts of Chicago and it's crime history. Minor thing is only wish driver would have stopped or slowed down more at buildings that were pointed out.

Very cool and interesting. Tour guide Jay was great and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Sites included John Dillinger, Al Capone, Dean O'Banion, Murray Humphreys, and others. Topics included the sites as well as "the untouchables", Johnny Torio, H.H. Holmes, Bugs Moran, and more. I would definitely recommend.

Prohibition story and stop. Weather was a factor but that could not be helped. Bathroom break a little earlier would be helpful.
