This was the third time my family and I have experienced the pizza tour. This time we were celebrating my brother’s 40th birthday as he had requested this tour as his gift. Our tour guide, John, was out of this world knowledgeable about everything pizza! We visited amazing pizzerias! All so different and unique. The pizza was delicious and we loved all the stories and information John shared. I have already recommended this tour to several friends. It’s a wonderful tour and delicious pizza!

The afternoon exceeded our expectations! The tour was well organised and executed flawlessly, nice to have door to door service from the bus and the pizzas were always served immediately upon our arrival. We visited four different places with a variety of styles and toppings. ALL OF THEM DELICIOUS. Making it extra special was the jovial personality and depth of knowledge of our host Jamie. He enlightened us with tales of the Chicago pizza world current and past, and also offered up tidbits about the city itself. Our tour had just a great energy among the crowd and it was nice to get to know the other people in the group a bit. A good time was had by all, and you definitely get your fill of pizza and fun!

My boyfriend and I are Chicago born and raised, and therefore, pizza enthusiasts. This was a perfect way to spend our 3 year anniversary and broaden our pizza horizons. Apart from the amazing pizza we sampled from 4 different locations, our tour guide James, was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable in both pizza history and making, along with history of Chicago. Can’t get much better than that. Local or visiting, take this tour!
