Chicago Crime Tours
Chicago’s beautiful architecture and pristine parks stretch like a thin, deceptively pretty layer of varnish over the city’s storied criminal history. The guides at Chicago Crime Tours peel back the façade to reveal the city’s darkest days, replete with visits to crime scenes and tales of some of Chicago’s most dastardly villains. Groups explore the hideouts of Al Capone and bullet holes left in the wake of mob shootouts. The guides’ catalog of criminal knowledge reaches all the way back to city’s infancy in the 19th century and includes such tales as the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre and the great baby-rattle heist of 1870.
