The Mob ToursTM, a specialty sightseeing company based in Niagara Falls, New York, has released their summer schedule, which will mark the one year anniversary of the company.

This year marks the first full season of operations for the company, and they have ambitious plans. “We missed the beginning of last season,” stated company founder Mike Rizzo, “and have been working since late last year to make all the connections and develop partnerships that would allow us to grow accordingly this year. So far, everything is coming together nicely.”

For the remainder of May there are Saturday tours, as well as tours all Memorial Day weekend. “In June we are offering Friday evening tours, as well as Saturday and Sunday tours. The Friday night tour is something we haven't tried before. It puts a different perspective on it than in the morning when we usually run.” The company has open tours Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during July and August. The week of Independence Day the company is offering tours daily, and open tours Labor day weekend.

The company specializes in tours of the former mafia in Niagara Falls. The 90-minute bus tour visits about a dozen former mob sites in Niagara Falls and tells the story of the late Stefano Magaddino, a former mafia boss, through story, music and a stop at Little Italy Niagara, a small mafia museum.
