This tour was fantastic. We loved the history, the host - jonathon you rock, and the venues too. Perhaps one thing that could be cool is some kind of written synopsis of the history you told that could be grabbed at the end. Not to take away from but to enhance the tour. Thanks again :)

We really enjoyed this tour! Loved hearing the history of each bar we visited. I do wish they would've included a free signature drink at each one but we still had fun. Would definitely recommend doing this!!
We loved this tour, giving us the opportunity to visit 4 different venues all unique with their own background and stories. So good to see them all still running today, each place was very busy.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative, sharing history and answering questions along the way.
Was great to see the variety of venues and enjoy with time for a couple of drinks at each place, some ofvtheparticipantscalsonhadvtime to order yummy food. We met some great people on the tour, from all over the world .
The meeting place The Green Door was easy to find ,we walked from our hotel, the hidden tunnels, back rooms andcsecret passageways were very cool and the stories were fascinating.
We discovered the Moscow Mule and have been enjoying this drink ever since back home , a great reminder of an awesome tour.
At the end of the tour in the city last stop was a busy bustling restaurant that serves AMAZING pizza pie , so we stayed there for tea , this stop was central and easy to walk back to our hotel, or near the train and bus stop if needed.
We loved the two stops in the middle as they were out of the city and in suburbia, our guide also explained these areas, and we loved seeing these areas of Chicago , so an additional bonus.
Overall this was very well organised, interesting and lots of fun , have encouraged others to do this tour , they have and loved it as well :-
Happy travels people !!

We enjoyed this tour so much. It is essentially a drinking tour with history thrown in. It starts at The Green Door Tavern which is a great drinking hole with a speakeasy in the basement. Food is good there and we ate before the tour started. The guide was very knowledgable with the prohibition history, and the speakeasy in the basement is awesome. The other bars were good and the history given to us on the bus between them was so good - you got a feel for old time Chicago. cant reccommend this tour enough - if you love the idea of a little Chicago history and a lot of drinking - then this is the one for you - enjoy

We really enjoyed this tour - we learned a lot of history and the drive through the neighbourhoods is something we wouldn't have seen had we not done this tour.
Very cool. Went to different bars and learned the history about the bars, while getting to try some drinks at the bars.
Great tour of 4 different prohibition era bars/restaurants. A really great way to see different parts of the city and learn LOTS of history and insights to cause and effects of prohibition all while tasting some amazing cocktails. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Hi, we booked the tour prior to travelling to Chicago. The tour was excellent ! The host Sydney Back was a real character and very knowledgeable. The tour took in a number of speakeasy bars, which included beverages at each site. We were all very jolly by the end of the tour. If you are interested in history with a gangster edge, then this is the tour fo you. Highly recommended !
We enjoyed both the historical information and insight provided as well the ability to partake in the different drinks at ach of the stops during the tour. Our guide was not only knowledgeable but fun and full of energy. Great fun!
Sydney was fantastic! It was a lot of fun and met some great people.
A good time learning about the prohibition era and the people who would find speakeasy's for a drink. Great way to see the old bars with a knowledgeable host to explain the history. You can get great drinks along the way. I had a great time.
This was a great insight into a big part of American history. Our tour guide, Sydney, was not only well educated on the subject matter but extremely entertaining as well. It was one of the highlights of our weekend!
My friend and I took this tour on 7/16. Our guide was Elizabeth and she did a great job! The tour is full of interesting facts about prohibition and the history of the 4 bars that were included on the tour. We met new friends on the tour and enjoyed sitting with them at each location, I highly recommend this fun tour when traveling to Chicago!
Great tour, some wonderful history, the guide was very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. A great tour and a lot of fun!
Really a fun and informative tour! Sydney was very sharp, informative and funny! We had a ball!!
This is such a fun tour! The four of us so enjoyed it. My husband, his brother and my sister-in-law were all born and raised in Chicago, but knew very little about the Speakeasy and prohibition history of Chicago. Our charming guide, Sidney was a hoot and a delight. So funny and full of information. I got to hand it to the girl, dealing with a dozen, increasing intoxicated adults, is not easy! She did it with wit and grace. Our driver was also very charming, super nice guy and very patient, waiting for all us! This is a well conceived and organized tour. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Very fun and interesting. Our guide, Sidney, was fun, funny, and very knowledgeable.
