A wonderful comfortable bus on a cold November day spent enjoying a great fact field tour of old Chicago. We loved the stories, the sites,and people of the 1920s and 30s. It was a thrill to see the places I had read about and watched...More
This was a great way to not only learn about the city of Chicago, but to get a chance to see parts of the city that you may not see beyond the 'tourist' areas. Our guide/host was very knowledgeable and exceptionally funny.

Da Boys will take good care of You's ! My wife and I were visiting the city and saw their bus rolling down the street and decided to investigate. After reading all the reviews we quickly booked tickets. The "gangster's" were super, always cracking hilarious...More
I was somewhat disappointed with this bus tour. While the tour guide was very personable, I did not feel that it adequately covered the many events which occurred during the last several centuries with crime in Chicago. Even the Holmes house had a number of...More
Went on this tour in October on a recent visit. Covered a lot of the "Mobs" sites on the north side of Chicago from where John Dillinger met his end to the secret tunnels under the Harry Cary's restaurant. Enjoyed it a lot. Our tour...More
We had a wonderful time on the tour. Learned quite a bit about buildings we have seen for years, but never realized the history relating to the gangsters in the 20’s. Would recommend to visitors and locals. Tour guide was excellent, bus was clean.
My wife and I took this tour with another couple and had a great time. The tour guide was very informative and yet made the whole trip fun. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that was visiting Chicago.
HELP - are we criss-crossing the city too much? (8 Replies)
We are leaving next week for an action-packed trip to Washington DC with two teens. I have a full itinerary but I need help understanding if we are keeping to one area - or close-by, each day so we aren't needlessly criss-crossing the city. Some days have "booked" tours (indicated by a "B") but the other things can be moved around to make travel easier. Please critique. We will be traveling by foot, metro and/or taxi. Day 1: Supreme Court, Washington Monument (B), National Mall walking...More

How are you planning to get to/from the Udvar-Hazy Museum, because it's out by Dulles Airport? If you're talking about seeing the Air and Space Museum that's on the Mall, near the Museum of American History, that's a different story?

Nope! Crime Down in Historic Core (0 Replies)
I stand corrected. Recently, I posted about a couple of dramatic crimes in the historic core. As a long-time resident, it concerned me. However, reading the Downtown News today, I see the incidents I referred to were both high-visibility exceptions. The stats are in and crime downtown continues to decline as it has over the past decade. Downtown like the rest of the city is a markedly safe place, particularly for a large metropolitan area. ladowntownnews.com/articles/2010/07/07/news/… ...More

Inner Harbor & Crime (3 Replies)
Is it safe to walk around Inner Harbor at night?
August 31, 2017|
It really depends. What are your specific plans? Basically it's a safe area. Once in a while you see a news article about some knucklehead causing problems. But generally safe. Now, if the plans involve a solo traveler getting drunk and strolling around at Midnight walking 6 blocks back to their hotel it may be a different story. So...what's the plan?
