Kansas City was a favorite spot of the “old timers.” The Gangster Tour puts you hot on the trail of this city's most notorious Goodfellas. Don't make us twist your arm. Grab your chopper, hop on the bus and you’ll be immersed in a melodramatic look at mob homes and hangouts, turf wars and infamous crimes like the Union Station massacre.Tours board at Union Station's West Transit Pavilion. For reservations or for ticket information call 816-471-1234. We’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.

We took the 90 minutes Gangster Tour on Saturday, Oct 7 - departed Union Station at 1:00pm. The bus smelled terrible (mix of sewer, gas exhaust, and someone in the past being ill possibly?) - the driver sprayed Febreeze, but that didn't help. This bus...More

Great time. Learned a lot of history about that time in Kansas City and our tour guide was funny and informative. We were with a travel club, and the tour guide made it a great time for entire group. Would highly recommend the Gangster Tour!

We struggled to hear the video and guide over other guest talking and couldn't see the monitor well BUT we did enjoy ourselves a lot. We learned a lot and had fun doing something touristy in our own town. Great for visiting guests - probably...More

The Gangster Tour is a great idea. It's too bad that the concept has not been supported by hiring the appropriate tour guide. There is a cute video that plays intermittently during the trip, describing lifestyles of some of Kansas City's colorful natives. Many tour...More

The public tours are only on Saturdays. You can book a private tour during the week if you have a group.
