"Shannon did a GREAT job!"

The tour was very informative. As the owner of the John Dillinger Museum in Indiana, I was curious to see how accurate the tour would be. HOLY COW.... Shannon nailed it! The stops were all well timed, and unlike other tours that don’t stop, it was great to get off the coach, see the alley by the Biograph and the vault in Harry Carey’s basement. A great 90 minutes.

Great, great, great! Informative and fun. John, our awesome guide, endured a seating mix-up and a couple that got off at the first stop as they "didnt want to sit in the front seat" (then dont get on as the bus is pulling away to start the tour). Awesome tour, got us pizza at the end, but John made it spectacular. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Leaves East Pearson St, $40ea, too expensive for 2 hours. Didn't really learn that much and stuck in traffic all the time. Book on line or call for ticket. Don't just turn up like everone tells you to or it may be booked out. Several people missed out because of this on our bus
