Great tour to learn a little about the skyline of Chicago and stories about the city. The walking isn’t too hard and you get a chance to seat in some stops. Matt was great and he knew what he was talking about. Definitely recommend it.

I recently did the walking monster tour. The guide was very knowledgeable on the subject of gangland life in 1920 upto present day. It’s a good way to see Chicago by visiting the old haunts of these well known guys. Would recommend 👍
