    This is a good pass worth the money. However I gave it 4 not 5 stars because my only issue is how 360 makes you do reservations online but their website continues to have system errors making it hard to book if you can book. I've been trying to reserve this time slot and can't cause all I get is a technical error screen. And you can't get anyone on the phone. Very frustrating.

It just so happened that 1 of the days I was in town called for rain & this was perfect. There are 2 stops where you can get off the bus & we were able to do both of those despite a few rain drops. Leah was super knowledgeable on all areas of Chicago crime. I felt like the whole tour flowed very well from start to finish.

I think the whole was greater than the sum of the parts. The minibus was good, the boat tour was good, but the two together were great!

Excellent tour guide, personable, humorous, and knowledgeable. We will certainly highly recommend to friends and family.

Our guide was great and very informative. His dad jokes were pretty on point too.
