Best known for his evocative masterpieces, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn is recognised as one of the Dutch Masters to have emerged in HollandÂ´s Golden Age of the 17th century. But life was not all light and pretty brushstrokes for the painter. Born in Leiden, Rembrandt moved to Amsterdam to continue his art studies in the studio of Pieter Lastman. The impressionable young man was greatly influenced by Lastman and the techniques he learned aided his career; but it wasnÂ´t so much his artwork that Rembrandt had problems with, but his personal life.
Join our walking audio tour of Amsterdam Rembrandt and learn about the life and times of the Dutch Master.

During the 1920s, a series of increasingly spectacular acts of violence spread like wildfire throughout ChicagoÂ´s gangland. The trouble started after the government had banned the sale and use of alcohol. At first the beer swilling community were grateful to the gangland criminals that risked their freedom and their lives and turned a blind-eye to the bloodshed. But illegal activities is big money and it wasnÂ´t long before the mobsters got out of hand culminating in the ValentineÂ´s Day Massacre and the death of a newspaper reporter. It came to a point when something had to be done.
For all their brutal violence towards each other, the goodfellas of the mafia have a strict code of conduct not to harm police, media or the general public and in return for lenient favours they feed the pockets of judges and politicians. Join us on our walking audio tour of ChicagoÂ´s gangland and learn about the amazing stories of the 1920Â´s cut-throat prohibition, the dazzling and dangerous lifestyle of gangsters or the mystery of the St. ValentineÂ´s Day massacre, to name few.
The towering city of Chicago has been the setting for numerous high-profile films, most notably, Ferris BuellarÂ´s Day Off, The Dark Knight and The Untouchables which gives a fictional account of the real-life story of Prohibition in Chicago and the Treasury OfficeÂ´s project to put notorious mob leader Al Capone behind bars.
