Ghosts and Al - Fun night and great tour guide. My daughter and I went on the tour as we love ghost tours, and add in gangsters...there you go. Mostly about AL Capone and not other Chicago gangsters. Nice walk around town. Tour guide was knowledgeable and fun.

Gangsters and Ghosts Tour Made Our Day - Avery was a very engaging tour guide. He was informative and enthusiastic about the storytelling. My friends were visiting from New York City, and we all really enjoyed learning more about Chicago’s darker side.

Highly recommended - I highly recommend the Gangsters and Ghosts walking tour. Sarah, our tour guide, was a wealth of knowledge, spoke clearly and loudly so all in the tour could hear over the background noise of the city. The most memorable ghost story was of the sinking of the USS Eastland and of the gangster stories, all about Al Capone and his rise to leadership of the south side Italian gang.
