About

Great way to see hidden gems
Kai was our tour guide and she was great! We loved our tour. We saw things we wouldn’t have otherwise on this trip. She was very knowledgeable and kept things fun and exciting. It was cold and windy the morning of our tour but Kai did a good job keeping us warm and made sure we had breaks to stay comfortable. Highly recommend!

Terrible experience
Nov 2021 • Family
This was a terrible experience. The tour itself was not terrible (mediocre perhaps) but the tour guide, customer service, and overall experience was not worth a one star rating. The tour guide left us halfway through the tour. There was no contact information provided to contact our tour guide or speak to anyone in customer service. All that could be found was a chat box in which no real help was offered. We were told someone would contact us about this. It has been over a week and no one has contacted us or answered any more messages through the chat option. Stefan was rude and unhelpful and the best I can tell is that this company doesn't care about customer satisfaction.

Ghosts and gangsters
The guide, Kai, was very knowledgeable about ghosts and gangsters. She kept the tour going at a reasonable pace with very little “down time.” She also did a great job keeping us warm and informed.

Concerned with hearing the tour guide?
Oct 2021
Yes, Chicago is a loud place and I was concerned if the tour would be enjoying with the busy city noise... I was pleasantly surprised with Kia. The dedication to make sure us tourists could hear, participate, and engulf in the city's rich gangster and ghosts history is unmatched. I can definitely recommend!
