We are the original Saint Paul Gangster Tour, and the best! You board a motorcoach and ride in air-conditioned comfort, regardless of the weather. A costumed gangster character is your guide. We’ll keep you informed, entertained and amused as we tour the 5-mile area of St. Paul. Our tour is the only one that starts at the historic Castle Royal Nightclub, a gangster hangout from the 1930s, preserved today as the Wabasha Street Caves. Learn why Saint Paul was a center for bootlegging operations and criminal activities during the prohibition era and beyond. Discover how these bad guys were aided and abetted by the Saint Paul Police. See where these criminals lived it up as they planned and executed some of the most nefarious crimes ever perpetrated in the upper Midwest. Notorious hoodlums included John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Alvin "Creepy" Karpis, Fred Barker, Arthur "Doc" Barker, and Ma Barker. You will see the sites of kidnappings, hideouts and shootouts. Join us for a journey through the days when Saint Paul was not so saintly and corruption filled the streets!
