My family went on the tour with Caleb. It was the best experience we had while in Chicago. My son is 18 and he loved the information and history as much as his father and I. Caleb provided historical events and stories and presented them in the most interesting way. We also appreciated that this was a walking tour and got to see areas of gangster history and basis Chicago history. We would definitely recommend this tour to visitors of Chicago!

I’ve been on many tours in Chicago. I learned a few new facts. This tour was average. The guide went through the motions, not genuinely engaged with tourers and used a memorized spiel. He also walked fast and didn’t look for or wait for the patrons.
