And Jonathan was exceptionally knowledgeable about prohibition history and the history of prohibition in Chicago, specifically. We learned a lot, and saw some extremely interesting bars.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello David, I love to hear that your tour guide, Jonathan was so knowledgeable and was able to share it with you! It is not everyday you get to go on an awesome tour and learn some new things! It sure sounds like you have some new bars to add to the list! Thanks for an amazing review! Best, Brooke
Elizabeth was great! Knowledgeable and fun, tying together prohibition, drinking and gangsters (inevitable given the timeframe) into a great story of Chicago through the era. Would definitely do again!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
What a well said review! Our partners really strive to provide the best tour possible, and I'm glad you were able to reap the benefits of that! Looking forward to hearing from you next time you're looking for another 5-star experience! Cheers, Jake.
Fun time! Interesting topic that was covered in depth. My only complaint was that the tour got a little disorganized at the more crowded bars, but it was still fine.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Sweet! I'm so glad you were able to enjoy yourself fully during this wonderful tour despite some natural crowding at the more popular stops. Let me know next time you're looking to go out on another awesome experience! Best, Jake.
Fun & informative
