Last week, my group of 18 took a private tour with Chicago Pizza Tours. EXCELLENT. From booking the tour with special requests with owner Jonathan, to the arrangements, the the Tour itself with Jonathan (different from owner) and "Q" our driver, a home run! We had a wide range of ages in our group and the tour appealed to all of us.

Excellent guide Jonathan kept us informed and entertained and we never once felt like we were listening to a script but rather hearing from a Chicago local who new what he was talking about and who truly seemed like he enjoyed being with us.

Do not eat breakfast and don't plan a big dinner as this Tour will fill you up in a good way. Great selection of a variety of pizza types and not the small samples that you get on many food tours.
My group learned a lot and enjoyed the tour so much that many of us will do it again. I was in a Chicago pizza rut and Jonathan and his Tour opened my eyes, and stomach, to some great pizza that Chicago has to offer.

Do yourself a favor and book this Tour. You won't be disappointed, unless of course you don't like delicious pizza and a great time.

This tour was a big hit with our group of 15 (mostly men) while we were in Chicago for a business meeting. Our driver Danny was a local And offered just the right amount of explanation of the city and locations we visited. He did a great job recommending the type of pizza and beer to try at each place. We booked a private tour but I am confident that joining a scheduled tour would be good as well. This is definitely a casual "good time" experience not an upscale event.

Last August we did this tour as part of a long weekend in Chicago. It became a high point that we've shared with friends and family. My daughter just did it and agrees. You will not find another opportunity like this one! Trying 4 pizza places ...arguably, some of the best in existence ...and learning about the nuances as you go; it becomes a true expert level experience. The side show becomes Chicago itself as you are more or less given a tour along the route. Great stuff!

Quintessential Chicago tour if you are a foodie! Who knew that comparing the intricacies of dough, cheese and sausage with a bunch of strangers would be so much fun. We even hit an additional pizzeria for dinner as the draw of comparing the pizza of competing brothers was too enticing!
Jonathan's knowledge of Chicago history made for great storytelling and his honest, un-politically correct candor was refreshing! Our final analysis...
- best overall, Pizano's
- best sausage, Pequod's
- best Chicago style thin crust, CoalFired, perfectly crisp/chewy crust!

There were participants of all ages. And all seemed to have a great time!!!
