I am doing some research on historical gangster hangouts and came across some very commercial looking tours one can take in Chicago. Are any of them any good? Are there any "forgotten" spots that I should look into?

Thanks in advance for any input! :)

Just a funny asside about the gangster tours. For years I lived 2 houses over from a VERY well known guy, his family still owned and lived in the house. One summer, on a daily basis, a tour bus pulled up and made a bunch of noise in front of this house. This didn't sit well with the family, they would go out and yell at the driver and swear that they would get rid of the tour. After 2 weeks, the daily tour bus was no more. Someone called someone who knew

I know this is an old thread, but i have to add that Adam Selzer is well known on the history. If you have never heard of him here is his website.
