“A really fun afternoon with a lot of great pizza”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We really enjoyed the tour. It was a small group - 6 total, but we got to try many different types of pizza. It was a lot of fun and also a nice little tour of Chicago to some extent. I'd recommend it - the dessert pizza at the end was a surprise and we all thought we were too full to try it, but suprisingly enough we were able to eat that one as well.

“An afternoon of Pizza delight”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Took this tour on New Years Eve with my wife and had a wonderful experience. Jon, owner/tour guide, was very informative about the history and making of pizza in Chicagop lus he was friendly and a delight to be with. He was indeed,a pizza conosour. We made 4 stops at different pizza parlors throughout Chicago, and tried different types and flavors of pizza. Come hungry because by the end of the tour we were indeed filled to the brim with pizza delights. While the tour appears at first blush to be a bit expensive ($60 pp), at the end of the tour we felt that it was well worth the price! If you love pizza, you will love Chicago Pizza Tours!

“We don't look at pizza the same!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you eat pizza, you should do this tour. Chicago takes its pizza seriously and we now understand why. We got to experience different types of pizzas of the thick crust and thin crust format and they were so fresh and tasty - we don't look at pizza the same and can't do those chains like Dominos anymore - at least not for a very long time. An added bonus was that we also got to learn about and see different parts of the city during the tour. At the end, we were so stuffed, we waddled off our mini-bus.

“Pizza Lovers Dream”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This tour was a gift from my son for Christmas last year but since we have been pretty busy, I didn't have an opportunity until a few weeks ago to even think, let alone book it. You must reserve 2 weeks out and cancellations are not an option. That's the most negative comment I have regarding this experience. This is a great concept for pizza lovers everywhere. Being chauffered from one pizza restaurant's front doorstep to another via private bus is the best! Not having to fight ANY traffic or look for impossible parking spaces is another plus. We stopped at 5 pizzerias and sampled enough to be full at the last stop. Owner/tour director, Jon, and assistant Mike, are full of interesting stories of Chicago's history which fills the time spent on the bus between restaurants. Being allowed into the actual cooking spaces of 2 of the pizzerias gives an appreciation for the intense heat being generated by these ovens. Seeing different techniques and pizza making styles is a true education. All in all an enjoyable event. Highly recommended. ;)
