Went on the Gangster Tour with 2 of our friends. We had a great time. The tour was very informative and we got to see places in KC that we had never seen before. The host was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour is a constant 90 minutes of information.

I went with the in-laws and wife. We live in JoCo and they were in from Ohio. This was a very informative tour, and a fun way to see the older parts of KCMO. A lot of interesting history, and the host was good....played the part awesome! I would recommend this for couples, or families without kids. Also, no lulls... More

I will not give this tour a "poor" rating because our host really worked hard and I feel that deserves some credit, but this was not at all what I expected. First of all, most of this tour is watching a video on the bus while you drive. Our host went in and out of character talking to the video... More

I highly recommend this tour, I was recommended by a friend and enjoyed it! The only problem was lack of a microphone, setting in the back on a warm day the driver had to turn off the AC so we could hear our guide, but other than that no complaints! The tour was entertaining, fun and educational.

Living in Kansas City, I never really thought I needed any type of tour. This was a fun way to learn a little history and enjoy time with friends.

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.
