Our family of four, including two teens, did the Saturday bus tour with Brian. It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago. I have to also give a special shout-out to Steve. My kids are picky eaters and really only like cheese pizza. Before booking the tour, I reached out to see if this could be accommodated. Steve said no problem, which was a very different response than I got from another pizza tour company in the area. So huge kudos to Steve and the restaurants he works with for recognizing that not everyone is an adventurous eater and that that is okay- it did not impact the experience at all. My kids truly enjoyed trying all the different varieties of cheese pizza, while my husband and I got to enjoy some very tasty combinations! It was a wonderful time for all of us and a highlight of our visit to Chicago!

What an amazing experience on a beautiful day in Chicago with THE BEST guide ever. Keith, guide extraordinaire, lead our group of friends to 4 of the most amazing pizzerias. Did you know there are 10 different types of pizza? I sure didn't. Keith was full of information. We tasted a variety of different pizza combinations and enjoyed learning the history of each. Can't wait for our next neighborhood pizza tour with Keith at the helm! Highly recommend!

Keith was our guide and he was fantastic. Extremely knowledgable about pizza and Chicago neighborhoods! We had 4 different styles of pizza and Keith's choices of where to go were perfect. It's a wonderful group event and we would highly recommend it to visitors to Chicago as well as locals.

We were part of the 4 stop bus tour with Steve, amazing experience! Each stop was unique. Steve’s passion for pizza definitely shows through his knowledge and enthusiasm throughout the tour. We learned so much about pizza and Chicago! We even got to meet the owners of the restaurants and ask them questions. 10/10 recommend!
