Overview
Combine a Chicago history lesson with supernatural tales for an ideal activity for adults and kids. Go back in time on the Gangsters and Ghosts tour to hear about Chicago in the roaring 1920’s when speakeasies around The Loop attracted notorious bootleggers and gangsters including Al Capone. See former gangster hangouts and haunted places like Congress Hotel, Palmer House, and Death Alley, with lively commentary from your historian guide.

We went two years ago. We had a blast. It’s a night tour so it’s more realistic. Very imformative and good people operate this very fun tour. Chicago is an American gem. It’s one of the most romantic cities in the world and this tour is part of its dark charm.

Our guide Lauren was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. She was able to answer questions about many aspects of Chicago, and I loved her enthusiasm! The tour itself takes you through some cool historical spots. A little spooky but not scary. I really enjoyed it!
