What an incredible tour! We added the Wabasha Cave tour, which took place before the motor coach Gangster Tour. The cave tour is done for a minimal cost and sets the table for what's to come. It is very interesting, but much more so as part of the Gangster Tour, which is done on a tour bus. Your tour bus... More

Our tour guide was "Edna Murray", the Kissing Bandit. She made our tour a step back in time to the 20's and 30's. I don't know it it could have been better. The perfect combination of history, local color and humor (maybe with the exception of the two 'reguired' puns) made this tour a real treat. Certainly glad that they... More

Amazing tour; it does depend on who is your tour guide. Try to get Babyface if you can- he embodies his role. It is really neat to see the history and travel through the limestone caverns.

This was a highlight of our girlfriend getaway weekend. Our guide, "John Dillinger," was equal parts entertaining and informative. Loved it!

Colorful bus & cave actor/guides entertained our YMCA group regarding the historical background of criminal elements in the 30's in several Saint Paul neighborhoods. Apparently well-heeled unsavory characters were welcomed in Saint Paul by local officials, as long as most organized crime business dealings took place in Minneapolis. Corruptive police even covered up organized crimes/murder in Saint Paul (i.e., bullet... More

This is really a bus tour of St. Paul for 2 hours with a guide telling stories about the prohibition gangsters who were welcomed here by local police as long as they paid for police protection. Only disembarked once to see the park where Hamm's mansion was located. Not very entertaining. Not a great value.

Our tour guide was in character, John Dillinger, and very funny and full of fantastic information. We learned all about St. Paul and its history.
