We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Danny was awesome!!! We also enjoyed our driver, Carey. The organizers did a great job selecting a variety of pizza styles. We also liked the guided tour of Chicago. You get good food and good info all together on this tour.

We love Chicago and love pizza and thought this was a great way to sample some of Chicago's finest. We were taken to all home-owned pizzerias, provided with something other than your standard pepperoni and sausage pizza (each pizzeria has its own unique specialty) and we also received a narrated tour of Chicago as we traveled from Pizzeria A to B to C to D and back! Great thing about this tour is you can take it several times and go to different establishments each time! A must do!

Amazing and very filling! We samples thick and thin crust pizzas at four different pizzerias. Our tour guide and driver were friendly and knowledgeable. What could be better than a Chicago tour and lots of pizza?

It was a lot of fun and the young tour guide was funny and energetic. The bus was hot and not air conditioned like advertised. I didn't like all the pizza places we went to. I always thought I liked deep dish pizza but didn't like any of the deep dishes we tried. The thin curst place with the coal fire pizza oven was the best but then again I'm from the west coast where thin crust is where it's at. Fun tour though. I'd do it again if I could pick the pizzerias.

This was an amazing way to sample many types of pizza. While we did not go to Lou Malnatti's on this tour - we enjoyed every pizza place that we stopped. The tour guides were wonderful, the people we met along the way were great. Just a fun way to explore Chicago.
