I had a great time on the Saturday bus tour. The content delivered was a nice blend of just the right amount of pizza-nerdery, Chicago history, and pizza culture. The locations visited and pizza variety each stood tall in their different categories, with special visits...More

One word: Book this tour. It exposes you to some of the best pizza restos in North America if not the world. There's plenty written about Steve in the media and he is also a James Beard award winning journalist. Ask ahead to see if...More

As Harry Caray would say, “Holy Cow!” Thanks for such a glowing review. Just to clarify, styles we tried were Neapolitan, Roman al taglio, tavern and deep (not stuffed). But we’re so happy you left stuffed and satisfied. Hope to see you on another tour...More

Trips by Pizza City USA in Chicago offers a great way to experience the unique culture of the city to its fullest. There are very few offerings or businesses that offer this kind of experience to the fullest extent.

Highly recommend the bus tour, as you also get to experience different Chicago neighbourhoods. Don’t eat too much at the first stop! I had seconds and they were delicious, but I regretted it by the fourth pizza place.
