Energetic tour guide on 5/13/2018. Can do without the foul language, really unnecessary and unprofessional. Tour should be relabelled "World Exposition Tour," as nothing of HH Holmes exists anymore, all building razed, so to point at a patch of grass and say "we think there's...More

Great tour! Our guide was Kevin and he demonstrated great knowledge about both Jolmes and the fair. The stop at the site of the murder hotel was perfect. Also loved the stop in Jackson Park. Highly recommend the tour and Thais guide.

It was a surprisingly informative tour! So much you don’t know about your own city! It was well worth it. Do be aware this is on s school bus which was very squishy for our 6’4” and 6’00” friends. Nicer bus would enhance the experience....More
