John, guide, and Wayne, driver, were both excellent at their jobs. Chicago is a beautiful city and your 40+ person bus was clean and comfortable ( only 15 participants). We saw the outside of the theater where Dillinger spent his last night, the alley where he was shot, and the Harry Caray Restaurant where there was a lot of historical news articles and photographs to look at. Everything else was “the building used to be here where... “ or “see that McDonalds, that used to be...” Again, John did an excellent job painting the historical background and telling the stories of the north side and south side gangs. I just wished that Chicago had the foresight to keep/rebuild/remodel some of the 1920s/1930s historical places that defined that era.
It just so happened that 1 of the days I was in town called for rain & this was perfect. There are 2 stops where you can get off the bus & we were able to do both of those despite a few rain drops. Leah was super knowledgeable on all areas of Chicago crime. I felt like the whole tour flowed very well from start to finish.
Was a terrific way to get out and see a little bit of the city and learn about some gangsters.
Our guide was great and very informative. His dad jokes were pretty on point too.
Caleb was a very cool, informative, & humorous guide, made the tour fun
