Very informative and cool little tour. Well worth the money. Learned a lot about Al Capone and a good bit of tragedies that happened in Chicago. .

Our tour guide was knowledgeable. We passed a few other tour guides along the way doing the same tour as ours, they didn't seem to have the same positive energy as ours did. Thanks, Calib. AKA, Phillip.

We loved learning about Al Capone, the first brownie, and the story behind all the ghosts! Death Alley was vet I interesting and new as we did not realize the amount of people who perished there.

The whole experience was great. I watched the Gangsters of Chicago on a television documentary but the extra information on the theaters, death alley, the HH killer was great

Our tour guide was Connor and he did a fantastic job of providing info at every stop of the tour. This was our first trip to Chicago and we learned a lot of fascinating stories of the area. The walking wasn't too bad, I would recommend this tour!

Lizzy is the best. Really enjoyed the tour. Will be on my to do list next time I Chicago. Learned a few things i was not aware, the boat tipping over and drowning a lot of families. Also, the information on the Dr. the killer.
