Our guide was professional and clearly knew her history. The tour was nearly 2 hours but was an easy walk. I would recommend it to anyone with the interest visiting the city.

Kai told wonderful stories full of facts and humor. I was hesitant to go on this tour because of some of the reviews, however, our 14 year old wanted to go. Kai held us in suspense from location to location as she intertwined the mobster story. It really was interesting. The ghost stories told of tragic mass deaths through Chicago’s history. After the mid break, we did lose our 14 year old’s attention but so thankful we continued as we went to the Cultural Center building - how beautiful! The stories really were wonderfully told. Kai is an expert tour guide. Voice projection, pace, visual cues, etc really made a difference through the streets.

It was more of a history tour of the Chicago area with some mob stories. I enjoy history so I didn't mind. The speaker needs a speaker or microphone because it was hard to hear with all the city traffic.

Kai was a great tour guide. So animated and knowledgeable! Some stories were spooky, some were sad, but all jam packed with history and it was so cool to see the places in person.
