Stumbled across this attraction looking for a fun birthday festivities. We opted to just do the Gangster tour (you can also tour the Wabasha caves). The tour is about 2 hours and it's all done on a bus. (there is no walking or getting in or out of the bus). I had not intention of planning this as a learning... More

I didn't know what to expect. For two hours you ride a high end bus with 50 stranger. A very entertaining guide tells true gangster stories you never heard before while driving past the places they happened. We never left the bus. The stories were very well told and humorous. I think you will enjoy the gangster era history. I... More

We had taken the cave tour and enjoyed it and learned about the Gangster Tour at that time so we looked forward to also taking this tour as well. You have to make a reservation. This is rather hard to do since it can't really be done easily on line. I had to call and the weekend we wanted to... More

We joined the gangster tour last weekend. We had the same tour guide at the caves. He was impersonating as one of the gang members. He was funny, engaged the tourists, and gave a lot of information - not just about the gangs but even other historic places at St. Paul. I am not sure if I would remember everything... More

Comfortable bus narrative tour, with restroom. Tour guide was informative. There were 6 couples and 2 children under 8. The youngest fell asleep. There was one stop in Swede Hallow Park where we got off the bus. After this 2 hour tour, we all agreed we were happy we took it. We got a good view of St. Paul'sinteresting history... More

This a great tour and would highly recommend it for anyone interested in the gangster era in St. Paul. The guides dress in period costume and are very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, we went on a rainy Saturday and got soaked waiting for the staff to get their act together. We pleaded with the driver to let us on the bus but... More

This tour is a must do for St Paul visitors. The tour guide was outstanding....she cleverly combined her love of history with her training in drama. She entertained us with stories on the Hamm kidnapping and the story of the Barker gang.

Our tour guide was "Nina Clifford", a quite famous madam during the time of Prohibition and the information she has about the area of St. Paul and its history were amazing. There didn't seem to be a question she couldn't answer. The bus tour of 2 hours took us downtown where she pointed out the Landmark Center which was the... More

We won tickets to this tour, and decided to give it a try. We are very glad that we did. Not only was it very informative, but it was very interesting as well. The tour guide was very good and made us laugh a lot. He obviously knew his stuff really well. The bus driver was great as well, as... More
