Really enthusiastic and informative guide. The weather was unhelpful and the windows in the bus promptly steamed up (I guess this was to be expected). Interesting insight into Chicago history.

I have been to Chicago many times, but have never taken this tour. It was interesting to hear about some of the gangsters and see the different locations of their “activities”. I definitely recommend taking this tour!
