    What to Expect
    Meet up with your tour in the evening at the southeast corner of N. Michigan Avenue and E. Pearson Street. Climb aboard and find a seat as your local guide begins a live narration that takes you deep into the annals of Chicago’s criminal past.

    Follow in the footsteps of gangsters like Dean O’Banion, John Dillinger, Al Capone, and Frank Nitti, learning about their connection to Chicago and the scenes of some of their most infamous criminal acts. Imagine the blood-soaked crime scene of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre as you visit the former site of this famous gangster shootout, and then learn about “The Enforcer’s Safe” and tunnels. At each stop you’ll have time to get off the bus and take a look around.

    Before finishing the trip you’ll also get to visit the Biograph Theater and see Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse. You’ll finish back at your original starting point.

    When you've done most of the things already in Chicago. UGH what to do next? The Chicago Crime Tour... Our guide, Javier, was fun and made the 90+ minute trip. Visited areas around Chicago with explanations. Relaxing and nice tour bus limo. Not really expensive. Give it a try.

    I took my class and had an amazing time. This tour was more historically accurate than other ones in Chicago. It is absolutely worth checking out. I liked that we were able to get off the bus and see the sites as well.
