Crime Tour

Chicago is a city with a lot of history. There are many different neighborhoods, each with its own unique personality and attractions. You can find everything from world-renowned museums to trendy restaurants and nightlife. There’s also plenty of shopping, including some of the best malls in the country. And, of course, no visit to Chicago would be complete without taking in a show at one of the many theaters or concert venues.

But Chicago is also a city with a dark side. It has a long history of crime, and some areas are open to visitors. If you’re interested in exploring this side of the city, there is only one way to do it in style: by booking our ground transportation. We can take you on a tour of some of the most notorious neighborhoods, visit crime museums, or even take a ride to see some of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Criminals, Gangsters, and Mobs! Oh My! Who doesn’t love a crime scene? Ok. Bad question. Who doesn’t love one of Chicago’s historical landmark crime scenes made famous by our city’s own mobs and gangsters?

Take a trip aboard one of our chartered, climate-controlled coaches. The viewing experience is enhanced by the large windows. You could be shocked, informed, entertained, and mindblown by the crime that has occurred in Chicago over the decades. Although we would want crime rates in Chicago to go down right now, this trip through our history of crime provides for two hours of amusement.

Your licensed and experienced tour guide will leave you believing you were actually part of the mob! Whether they were born, lived, or died in Chicago, some of the most notorious criminals of all time are connected to the Windy City.

Some of the most entertaining crime tours that we do in Chicago are:

-The Biggest Gangsters in Chicago History

-The Most Shocking Crimes in Chicago’s History

Murder and Mayhem Tour

The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Crime Scene Tour

-Al Capone Crime Spree Tour

-John Dillinger Escape Route Tour

These are just a few of the topics covered on our Chicago Crime Tour. If you are looking for a more in-depth experience, we also offer private tours. On a private tour, your group will have the entire coach to yourselves as you go through Chicago’s seedy underbelly.

During your two-hour tour, you will learn about:

-The most notorious gangsters in Chicago history

-The rise and fall of Al Capone

-The most shocking crimes in Chicago’s history

-How the city has changed since the days of Prohibition

-And much more!

Ideal Charter Bus Reviews


I just wanted to reach out to you regarding our rental of your Coach on Friday, May 1st. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Everything worked out perfect for our transportation needs on that night. Nick was an awesome driver, and ALL of us on the bus marveled at his driving skills in Chicago ☺ I cannot say enough about Nick being there in a timely manner, his professionalism and courtesy to all of our guests. Renting this transportation made all of our guests more at ease being in Chicago, and not having to worry about parking, directions and being on time for the Rehearsal / Rehearsal Dinner. Again, thank you for a job well done!!

Perfect! No complaints! We used Ideal Charter for our wedding in late September — they shuttled the wedding party, and transported guests from our West Loop venue back downtown after the party. I arranged the transportation with Tom, the owner, and he was efficient and the pricing was very reasonable! Frankie was our driver, and he was wonderful! He was kind enough to provide some treats for us, the bus was clean, he played our music, and he was flexible and happily scooted between locations on the fly. Pricing was consistent throughout the process and included the taxes and fuel charges (and was the best rate I was quoted).
