Overview

Our guides present an accurate account of the activities in Chicago during the 1920's and 1930's (Prohibition Era). You will hear about the exploits of Capone, Moran, Dillinger and the rest of the boys! Some sites included are: the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the Biograph Theater, and Holy Name Cathedral. The tour is educational but also very entertaining because our Gangster Guides are actors. Our Untouchable Tour Gangster Guides take on the persona of a gangster and have fun with it.

Reservations are strongly recommended.

Great tour with lots of interesting facts. Our guide stayed in character throughout the tour and provided many laughs. There was a raffle near the end of the tour. It was definitely worth the price of admission.

Johnny 3 knives was awesome. He is a great story teller, and very entertaining. I've watched moves, and read books about the prohibition era, but this tour brings it to life in a way that no movie can. Even my wife enjoyed it, and she's not into mob movies. I'm definitely going to have to do this again.

08/27/2021 I have been visiting Chicago for years and decided it was time to do this tour for my birthday. It was so enjoyable and Johnny Three Knives made it so fun. The bus was laughing and prizes were won by three lucky winners. My son was one of the winners. He received a book which he loved because he loves to read. Take this tour and remember to tip your bus driver for driving the huge bus in crazy Chicago traffic as well as your tour guide who does a great job retelling the past.

Johnny 3 Knives gave us a great tour of Chicago killings from the 20’s and 30’s. Got to see more of the city as well. Well worth it.

I love this magnificent city with its spiritually soaring majestic skyscrapers and botanical garden streets. I also love it’s sordid past including its evil gangster history. Hate him or not, Al Capone is a historical icon of Prohibition on steroids. I loved the Untouchables Tour. Our guide called himself Johnny Three Knives and he was simply fantastic! His stories rattled off like a Tommy Gun and he had us both, amazed and in stitches. Just when you think you knew it all, he rattled your brain like a back slap in the face by Frank Nitty. There’s two tour that are musts: the architecture boat tour and the untouchables tour. Well worth the price. The air conditioned coach ain’t bad either. Highly recommended- or else!

Absolutely loved it. Our guide was a blast who stayed in character the whole time as a Prohibition Era gangster. Tons of great knowledge and an entertaining way to present. We learned way more (by a LONG shot) about the city even on non-mafia topics than on the “Big Bus” tour which has gone to a cheesy pre-recorded narration instead of anything substantive.They’re back in operation now and boy am I glad our trip to Chicago was on their first week back open post-COVID!I would give them six stars if I could. Definitely more than worth the time and money.

I had not a reservation, yet, I was 2nd in line because I arrived early. Good thing too. Great seat, because the Bus has not a good scenic front window. I think it should be another kind of BUS because we go through interesting neighborhoods and the stories that the Al Guide says are very interesting and deserve a picture, even if from inside the Bus. It was too hot inside.. Even the guide had to ask the driver to lower the heat... against the driver's will... Great humor, fantastic true tales made a good intersting tour. I have recomend it. I just alert you for these details..

The Untouchables tour could not have been better. The guide stayed in character as charismatic Johnny Three Knives for an hour and 45 minutes of fun, historical facts, and photo ops from the comfort of our bus. We visited places we would never have gone by car. Such great fun!
