Lizzy, our guide was so sweet! You walk through the beautiful city, stop here and there and listen to interesting facts and stories. Halfway through there‘s a break for getting some brownies and using the bathroom. Would definetly recommend! Lizzy always made sure everybody has a great time and no one gets lost and stays with the group. Loved it!

Loved this tour! Our tour guide was wonderful and super knowledgeable and engaging. The history of Chicago was very intriguing and it was so nice to be able to get out and safely explore at night. Loved every bit of the gangster history! Would definitely recommend!

Awesome tour! Learned a lot about the city itself and prohibition. Furthermore, Kai the tour guide know really everything about the city and you could ask her everything! Thanks for the nice tour

Fun way to spend time in Chicago! It was easy to keep up with and hear our guide, and she led us to gems in the city we wouldn't have found otherwise!

We had a great time. Our tour guide Kai was great, very knowledgeable and warm despite how cold it was walking around at night.
