We loved the fun fact history lesson of Chicago and the prohibition era. Well worth it! My teenage boys and husband thought it was awesome. We still talked about it in the airplane on our way home.

This was such a fun tour. We met our tour guide and group in front of the Hoyt and then started on the walk. Our tour guide, Caleb, was super knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and kept us entertained throughout the tour. We learned some cool facts about Al Capone, a little history of Chicago, and heard some spooky stories as well. This tour is definitely worth doing if you’re looking for something fun to do while visiting Chicago!

Caleb was very knowledgeable of the gangsters history in Chicago. He was very enthusiastic and made the stories very interesting while informative. Not only did he talk about gangsters and ghosts, Caleb also went further and told us a lot about the city. Our walk wasn’t far and was honestly a beautiful way to see more of Chicago. We definitely recommend the tour! Thanks for the awesome history, Caleb!
