We really enjoyed our 2 hour tour with Stefan. He had lots of grusome tales to tell and fantastic knowledge about some of Chicago's quirky architecture. Thanks!

Our tour guide was incredible! We loved him and his informative guidance through the city. I would definitely take this tour again!

The tour was more of an architectural tour than a gangster and ghosts. Discussed locations that we have seen on another tour that was sold out but never even walked by the location. It was focused more on architecture then gangsters. Would mention ghosts and gangsters every now and then. Break was not until the last 1/2 -3/4 hour of the tour.

It was cold but it was good experience

It was fun and informative. A few unexpected events occurred, but our guide was a pro and did his best to continue the tour seamlessly. If only the weather was a bit nicer. This walk is a must during warmer weather.

As a frequent tour taker all around the globe, I must say this was the most interesting and special tours.

The highlight was defiantly getting to go into the super famous and haunted Congress Hotel. We saw the lobby where H.H. Holmes picked up his victims, the infamous room 441 and Capone’s Suite!
