It was great. The tour guide looked like my younger brother...lmao! I was hoping we actually go into a haunted building but it probably wouldve been too creepy for some. Tour guide did a great job!

Connor was our guide...he was awesome. He had some humor along with so much knowledge and stories of Chicago's history of Ghosts since past and the history of one of the most notorious gangsters, Al Capone. Although it was a cold walk, we both loved it!
