Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This unique tour takes you to the actual places where famous gangsters and mobsters carried out their evil and mischievous activities. You even get to explore a few of the places by foot, taking real steps into history!
Your tour will begin in Chicago’s Near North Side, across the street from Water Tower Place, where you will board your coach vehicle.  On board, an experienced guide narrates during your 1.5-hour tour of Chicago’s famed criminal and historical sights. Listen to thrilling stories of mobsters, violence and crime as your coach winds through Chicago’s historic River North, Gold Cost, Lincoln Park, Old Town, Loop and Magnificent Mile. Snap pictures and enjoy little-known tales of legendary mobsters Al Capone, ‘Terrible’ Tommy O’Conner, and Bugs Moran.  

Your mafia tour highlights Chicago’s most notorious crime scenes, including the courthouse where some of the most famed mob cases were tried, and the site of the grisly 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Other notorious mob haunts you do a drive-by on are the Biograph Theater and Holy Name Cathedral. (Along the way, you can hop out of your ride for pictures.) When it's all over, you'll get a ride back to the Near North Side to end the tour.

My girlfriend and I visited Chicago for her 50th birthday. We really enjoyed the tour. Ben was our guide and did a great job. The only thing we missed out on was the Valentines Day site due to construction in that area, so no fault of theirs. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in Chicago.

The tour offers a lot of information and tidbits regarding the gangster era of the city. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable about the details and made the whole thing fun with his demeanor. We were a little disappointed that there were not more opportunities to get out and get a first-hand look at things but out time on the bus was nice.

After seeing that this tour was so highly rated, I decided I must do it on my trip to Chicago. I was definitely not dissapointed. Our tour guide Anna was a blast, gave us lots of history, kept it fun for everyone and had great jokes relating to the subject at hand.
We had enough time at each location, to look around and take photos. The bus seats were also very comfortable.

It seemed as though they used the walking to ensure the 90 min tour, versus real sites. I was expecting so much more, particularly sites/homes of Crime villans.
