Great tour. You won't be disappointed. I've taken the other tours so I have something to compare this one with.
This is a must do while visiting Chicago! Tour guide was very engaging and left us entertained. The two bar stops (drinks not included) were fun and full of history. This is a great way to experience the city!
El tour se hace de noche. El micro es muy limpio y el guia sabia mucho de la historia de gangsters. Lo que si me parece que se apreciaria mas si fuera de dia y tuviera algunas paradas mas donde se puedan ver fotos y recortes de la epoca.
