Went with friends who had done the tour 3 times before. Fun 90 minutes. Learned a lot about Kansas City's history and the gangsters who made Kansas City what it is today!

This tour was a great look into Kansas City's seedier history. I enjoyed the story pies and the history. Our tour guide was very good. I was intrigued by the Pendergrass stories.

While the tour is a little high (about $30 a person) you can usually find $4-5 off coupons online before booking. The tour guide is great and don't be offended at the tipping at the end of the tour: it kind of goes with the mobster theme of what's yours is mine. The tour guide even took a picture with... More

Living in KC my entire life, it was great to hear some of the history that still influences Kansas City today. The tour guide was very animated and dressed the part (zoot suit, pinkie ring and a fedora) and knew tons of "insider" information. What I didn't like was to pay such a high price for a tour and then... More

We took some out of town guests on the Gangster Tour and everyone was thoroughly entertained! I've lived in the KC area most of my life, and while I was familiar with most of the stories; it was great to see the actual locations where the events occurred. The tour departed from Union station and lasted about 1 1/2 hours.... More

The original Gangster tour by KCTG.com has been around for 15 years. There is a new one called Ghost and Gangsters offered by Full Moon Productions. I have been on the real Gangster Tour four times and it's excellent!

The three previous reviews do not even sound like the tour I took today with a group of 25. Allthough the 90-minute tour is scheduled for Saturday afternoons, we had a special tour this morning. It was excellent. Our guide was informative, the video intermingled was good, and we all learned a lot. Ghosts were not a part of this... More
