About Kansas City Gangster Tour
Kansas City was a favorite spot of the “old timers.” The Gangster Tour puts you hot on the trail of this city's most notorious Goodfellas. Don't make us twist your arm. 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.

This tour has been around for 20+ years and it shows. It was a decent history of the Tom Pendergast era but the information ended after his death. It is a 90 minute tour and the guide could have provide twice the information. Instead, he spent much of his time talking about prostitution and insinuating all men on the bus were interested in that. Additionally, he made not one, not two, but FIVE "jokes" about election fraud and how 50% of the people buried in the cemetery voted for Biden. Tip: stay away from conspiracy theory "jokes" as well as divisive political topics. This tour is not worth the money

The stories they told were highly entertaining and enlightening. We have been researching Kansas City's political machine recently and were excited to see the exact locations we have read about. Our kids (9 and 11) enjoyed the stories as well. The bus was comfortable and clean, and it was evident they took our safety seriously. Highly recommend the tour!

We were looking for something to do that didn’t require a lot of walking- older parents. This is the perfect tour!! The van was comfortable and warm. Very organized and the gangsters were great! Since the tour is limited, no worries about social distancing. I’ve lived here most of my life and learned so many new things about KC. John and Bennie were the perfect team- kept us laughing the whole time. This is a must do tour!

I have lived in the Kansas City metro area all my life. I found the information fascinating on buildings and other sites still existing that were used by the various crime factions.

Our group, all but one from or originally from Chicago, thought the tour was outstanding. Especially enjoyed Benny and Johnny. Having grown up in the Chicago suburbs, and now having lived in the Kansas City area for 40 years, it brought so much of the history together for me.. In addition to the gangster part of the tour, gave you a lot of insight and views of beautiful Kansas City. Highly recommend.
