Grab your chopper, hop on the bus and you’ll be immersed in a melodramatic look at mob homes and hangouts, turf wars and infamous crimes like the Union Station massacre.Tours board at Union Station's West Transit Pavilion. For reservations or for ticket information call 816-471-1234. We’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.

It was an afternoon packed with history and excitement! We traveled down the road with our guide dressed as an upscale gangster. He educated us on historic gangster landmarks and the effects it had on the cities politics and buildings. The tour never had a dull moment and our guide even reenacted a famous shootout and we all cheered from... More

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.

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!
