Tour guide was very good and the content was interesting, yet connection to places visited was weak. Given that it more sounded like storytelling on feet and not really a tour, which does not justify the price.

We went on a tour with Davey and had a great time. He was very well informed and engaging. I would definitely recommend this tour. A lot of the Mob spots are gone but it was still interesting to see where they would have been.

Hi - The tour guide Dylan was great and made the 2:20h walking tour one of the highlights of my 2 days staying in Chicago. All details from architecture, gangsters & underground histories, as well as ghosts/haunt histories are fascinating. Totally worth to do it.

Have been to Chicago many times and wanted to do something "different". This tour was very informative and entertaining at the same time. Our tour guide, Stephan, was witty and a great story teller. Would not recommend for people who aren't used to walking.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

Meeting place is outside of the Hoyt's sign at the Wyndham Hotel. Time depends on the schedule you chose. They run (I think) four guided tours in a day. The last tour starts at 8PM. Hope this helped.
