Olivia is the BEST

OLIVIA IS THE BEST!!!!! She has a lot of knowledge when it comes to the history of the gangsters of Chicago. She really did interact with the whole group. It is a walking tour and took us almost half of downtown!!! Really nice experience. We were the 11 people group that was loud and I’m pretty sure she’s never had a group this crazy before lol!

H.H. Holmes was my favorite. Learned so much about Capone. Can’t forget the Congress Hotel. Each experience is different because of the person telling the story, so worth going again and again.
