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.
John was our guide and he was so much fun to have leading us through the whole thing! He’s very knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun & interesting! Highly recommend trying this out!
Great tour with a lot of interesting information. Our guide did a fantastic job keeping it fun for all ages. Highly recommended!
Our guide was great and very informative. His dad jokes were pretty on point too.
