    This was hands down my favorite Chicago excursion. And that is saying a lot considering I’ve been on many fantastic tours since visiting this marvelous city. My tour guide, Peter was full of interesting historical facts. I also recommend the gangster and ghost tour.

    The theater is old and it is very well kept. There are two tours daily, at 12 and at 1 pm. The tour includes the area for artists. You can stand on the stage and get a wonderful view of the sitting areas.
