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!

Lauren was our guide and her knowledge and history telling was amazing. The history nerd in me makes me want to go down the wormhole on Scarface, HH Holmes and more. Excellent tour, and totally Covid safe.

Caleb was our tour guide and he did a great job! We all wore masks and the tour guide would only remove his when there was a large separation between us so that he could tell the story behind certain buildings.
