“ENTERTAINING and FUN.....BEST TOUR IN THE CITY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

OUTSTANDING......The Chicago Pizza Tour is by far the best tour in the city. You couldn't ask for a better time!! Jon is fun, entertaining and has you captivated by the rich history and the encyclopedia of knowledge of which he is so great at portraying. Out of the many restaurants he will take you, you will enjoy ranking each one based on everything from toppings to crust and not to mention the different styles.

I highly recommend grabbing a friend or more and putting this tour on your to-do-list!! You will not regret it and most likely be talking about it for days!

“Fabulous Pizza Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012 via mobile

We booked this tour as family outing for our pizza loving crew. It took us a while to get a date for reservations for seven on the tour (the max is 16 people) but boy was it worth the wait!

We went on St. Patrick's Day, the weather was perfect, and the tour was a great way to people watch around Chicago. John, the owner/guide was funny, knowledgeable, and passionate about pizza. He even attends pizza industry trade shows so he's up on his facts- from ovens to cheese. We're locals from the suburbs, and John could spout off about pizza places seemingly everywhere in Chicagoland. His pizza place picks were awesome. Who would ever think of ordering a kielbasa pizza? Or one with italian beef and giardiniera? John had the just the place.

With traffic, we spent about 4 hours on tour, but my 11 year old said it only felt like an hour! Plenty of food and fun. We'd highly recommend the tour, and would consider doing it again. Thanks, John, for a memorable day!

“A pizza lovers must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Enjoyed a great afternoon with friends jumping from one pizza rest to another. Each location Jon took us to was unique and different. In the end, the food, tour, and the entire afternoon was a hit. Would recommend this to tour to anyone.

“AMAZING Tour!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

John did an awesome job giving us a peak into the Chicago Pizza Scene! The history (both about pizza & Chicago in general) made it feel personal. Not a "corporate" feel. The true Chicago way! We'll be recommending this tour to anyone we can! Great job ChicagoPizzaTours!!! We'll be back to see you at your "office" John!!! Thanks again!!!!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Not only do you get to try four, very different styles of pizza on this tour, but you also get a great tour of the city, as well. Jon is very knowledgeable when it comes to pizza, but also of interesting tid-bits of the city. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city, but also to locals (as I am). Jon is funny, keeps you entertained and the pizza is delicious!! I can't wait to go back to any of those four pizza places!!
