Chicago has a past filled with big gangster names such as John Dillinger and the infamous Al Capone. Dive deep into the city’s mobster ways with a guide who knows where “the business” was done. Stay comfortable during this bus tour, which is perfect for any type of weather, and choose from multiple departure times to best suit your schedule.
What to Expect
Your tour meets in Chicago’s Near North Side, across from the Water Tower Place shopping mall. Hop aboard an air-conditioned coach bus, and get ready to learn about the city’s shady past.

Your driver provides a smooth ride through the city, bypassing traffic when possible, while your guide points out main landmarks that play a part in the area’s gangster history. Hear stories about big-time mobsters—including Al Capone, Tommy O’Conner, Bugs Moran, and Hymie Weiss—as well as The Untouchables, who helped bring them down.

You’ll see locations where well-known crimes happened and the courthouses where the bad guys were tried for their crimes. Some parts of this tour allow you to get off and wander around important attractions on foot.

Your tour ends with a drop-off at the departure point.

Less Than I Hoped For

We got on to a nice bus with a loud sound system. The guide was interesting, but he called Johnson & Johnson the maker of Tylenol "SC Johnson, a family company." This makes me wonder if other facts were distorted. It was an interesting two...More
