Gangsters and Ghosts Tour in Chicago

1,163 reviews
Combine a Chicago history lesson with supernatural tales for an ideal activity for adults and kids. Go back in time on the Gangsters and Ghosts tour to hear about Chicago in the roaring 1920’s when speakeasies around The Loop attracted notorious bootleggers and gangsters including Al Capone. See former gangster hangouts and haunted places like Congress Hotel, Palmer House, and Death Alley, with lively commentary from your historian guide.

Pretty great view. Lines move very fast. Even the glass floor one. Just take your time and enjoy the day.

We visited the John Hancock Centre in the evening to see Chicago by night, and took the elevator to the 95th floor where you can enjoy the views from comfortable window-side seats for the price of a drink. Sure, the drinks aren't exactly cheap, but this is a much more budget friendly option than the $22 observation deck or indeed anything at the Willis Tower. Service was friendly and prompt, the drinks selection was pretty good and we had no problem securing a window seat, albeit on the 'wrong' side for views of The Loop, instead getting good views up Lake Shore Drive. If you're planning on visiting at night, be aware that there is nothing to see in the direction of the Lake - just darkness - so make sure you head left or right from the elevator, as the seats straight ahead only look out to the lake. This was a great way to get a good value night time view having already experienced the day time view from the Willis Tower.

Certainly cheaper than the Sky Deck at Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). Be mindful of the weather ahead of your visit, i.e. fog. The 95th Floor Signature Lounge offers great views of the city - though you need to go up and buy a drink or have a meal.

Well worth a visit, particularly if you go in the late afternoon, when you get both daylight and twilight. Oh, and don’t pay the $20+ to do the Skydeck. Instead, go up to the Signature Lounge where you can buy a $10 beer and get the same view.

Great views. Instead of paying 22 dollars to go to the observation deck, go straight to the Signature lounge on the 95th floor free of charge and purchase a drink, much cheaper.....fantastic cocktails for about 15 dollars. The views are spectacular. Visit during the day, then return when it’s dark to see Chicago lit up.
