Rosa was great. Shared details of historic events of the city in relation to hauntings and gangster encounters. Her tour stood out I think because she used the inflections of her voice to emphasize certain facts which made you more engaged in the story.

About Gangsters and Ghosts Tour

During the Roaring 20s, Chicago's business district served as the stomping grounds for Al Capone and other historic gangsters. Today, the district, known as the Loop, still contains remnants of that bygone time, and the Gangsters and Ghosts Tour exposes guests to those gangster gems. Each night's walking tour starts near Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront hotel and explores 1.5 miles over about two hours. During the tour, an historian leads guests to famous and little-known spots that once housed underground tunnels and speakeasies, relaying verified ghost stories along the way.
