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.

Absolutely. There is enough for anyone of all ages to enjoy. We actually had our pre-teen son along who really enjoyed it.
Do I need reservations and what is the cost?

I would most definitely call for reservations. The bus gets very full. I believe the tickets are $24 each. This is for a 2 hour bus ride.
