Where it all happened

We enjoyed this tour of Chicago's crime scenes. Our guide also explained how they affected the development of Chicago. We stopped at a very loud bar where we were on our own. And wasn't thrilled to eat deep dish pizza on my lap in the bus, but overall, liked the tour and the guide.
