Owner description: Experience Chicago as it was during the 1920's and 30's. See the old gangster hot spots and hit spots! Hear historically accurate accounts of the exploits of Capone, Moran, Dillinger and the rest of the boys! Feel the excitement of jazz-age Chicago during the era of prohibition. Enjoy . . . a journey into the past as we cruise the city in search of the old hoodlum haunts, brothels, gambling dens and sites of the gangland shootouts!

“The other kind of city tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Instead of doing the boring hop on/hop off tours, we decided to get to know the "gangster" side of Chicago. The tour was a blast. You will learn about Al Capone and all the other gangsters. But you will also hear a lot of the "normal" facts about Chicago.

Our tour is an on-bus tour so that allows our excellent tour guides to show you more 1920's and 30's attractions in Chicago! We are glad that you enjoyed the tour!

“You've got to do this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

First of all, a big thumbs up to the staff when we booked over the phone - they were really helpful. Do make sure you pre-book though. Some people tried to pay on the day and there was no room for them. From start to finish, our two guides were brilliant - they kept us entertained and told us and showed us some amazing things about Chicago in the 1920s. Considering it's all done on a bus, it's really interactive and you feel part of it. Best two hours spent in Chicago.

“Don't Miss This One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Been to Chicago several times and wish we had taken this tour before. The guides are 5 star and the education we received was a surprise. Make reservations because they sell out quickly.
