“Take the Chicago Pizza Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Ten of us took the tour today. Jonathan was a fabulous host and guide as we traveled to 4 different pizza restaurants in different areas of the city. Part pizza, part tour, it's such a deal. Call direct to find out about group rates or filling a bus with 8 couples! All fun- by yourself or with friends. You will all be friends before the tour is over.

“Danny was the secret ingredient ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Many have shared that the tour showcased great pizza and a good dose of Chicago history, but Danny our guide was our secret ingredient. On tour there were 17 guests and before we boarded the bus he knew everyone by name. As a local he shared with my guests many fascinating and new fun facts on pizza and local history. Danny made sure every guest was treated special and met all special requests. The pizza selections and variety were excellent. One recommendation would be a taller bus with larger windows as many views were obstructed. Great tour for locals, groups and of course visitors to the great city of Chicago.

“Great way to try lots of pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I tried the Chicago Pizza tour. Kevin, the host, was great! We enjoyed trying the different types of pizza that Chicago has to offer. It is a must see if you like pizza and want to learn about restaurants that you might not otherwise hear about.

“Great trip for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My husband and I took this tour this weekend. I was expecting a few slices of pizza and choice of beer or wine from a pitcher on the table, not the case. We went to 4 different restaurants, all slightly different and could chose whatever drink we wanted, and had plenty of pizza. So it actually turned in to a pizza and unique beers tour for us. The pizza varied from tavern style, deep dish, and thin crust, all decent pizzas. There was even a little surprise deep dish cookie for dessert at the last stop. Another positive about the tour is that a party bus takes you around town, so no driving and no parking, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves.

“Best day ever! Must do in Chicago.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We visited 4 different pizza joints in different neighborhoods which was great to get off the beaten path of the typical tourist draws. This was a big plus for me. Danny was great, entertaining and had a lot of information to share about pizza history and the city. If you want to have fun, eat great pizza and see different neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the way to do it!
