Welcome to Chicago. Where the only thing more chilling than the long winters is the legacy of jazz, gangsters, and greed that has left an indelible mark on the city.

The Windy City is known for its stunning architecture, rich culture, and gorgeous lake views, as well as for its varied—and sometimes quite twisted—history…

Tour Info

Lake Michigan’s famed metropolis seems to have it all—and then some. Maybe you’ve come to Chicago to catch a comedy show at Second City, try the famous deep dish pizza, or take a stroll through Millennium Park. Maybe you’re a Chicago native who’s walked these streets a million times before. Either way, the beauty that towers above you in Chicago’s magnificent skyscraper is mirrored by a darkness that lurks below the busy streets. Are you brave enough to peer beneath the surface?

Go back in time with us to an era of gangsters, bootleggers, bank robbers, and jazz babies. Our nightly tours take you through Lincoln Park, a beautiful North Side neighborhood with a twisted past. Learn about the forgotten burial ground that is the foundation of this bustling neighborhood. Check the bathroom mirrors in the Lion House of the Lincoln Park Zoo to make sure the ghost of a Victorian woman in white isn’t standing right behind you. Learn what spirit haunted Al Capone to the end of his days. On our Ghosts of Lincoln Park tour, you’ll hear the strange and disturbing tales associated with each of our carefully selected tour stops. From the occult history of Prohibition-era pubs to the shifting statues of the lovely Oz Park, Lincoln Park is home to plenty of urban legends you may have heard scraps of—but through our guides, you’ll hear the detailed, thoroughly researched stories you can’t get anywhere else.
