Overview
More
Prohibition was a wild,hysterical age filled with glamour & excitement difficult to match in history. It spawned the birth of speakeasies, flapper girls and blind pigs. Gangsters fought to secure a share of the illegal liquor business and mobsters like Al Capone relied on Windsor as the main supplier. The Rum Runners Tour take you back in time to that infamous period known as "The Roaring 20's."

We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We try to balance the educational value with the entertainment value. It's easy for our performers to be enthusiastic when our audience is also enthusiastic and your group was right up there with the best.
