I saw some negative reivews on here and went anyway. True: It is a black school bus with no bathroom; they do encourage tips (one time comedic request); they tell corny and politically incorrect jokes; and it is not serious history. Also True: Most of...More

Your guide gives you a tour of Al Capone and bootlegging events and places. You are transported back to the the Untouchables were hunted down by the FBI.Lots of Chicago facts and history are given on this trip that you never expected. Great for groups!

Went with my family, and my parents loved it! Lots of history I never learned after living here for the last 8 years. In fact, I walk past Holy name every weekend, and I never noticed the bullet hole in the column.

I think you would really enjoy the tour, even if you know very little about gangsters. It gives you a great tour of Chicago. I would try to sit in the front of the bus to help with understanding.
