“The Ultimate Rip Off/Tourist Trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

Misrepresented by their site; apparently write their own rave reviews, horrifically overpriced (even with a Group on), this should be avoided. Most if not all of the information which is endlessly blabbered can be reached via computer or by reading the information on the pizzeria walls.
First, the tour should be called the "Sliver of Pizza Tour" not the "Slice of Pizza". You received a thin sliver of pizza at each of three places..not enough to comprise a light meal.
While their site misleadingly says, "Choose your own toppings", what happens is the guide asks each person, "What are your favorite toppings?" Then you receive your sliver of cheese..no choice.
You get to stand outside Uno's for 40 minutes while the guide orates on. Uno's won't let the tour into the restaurant.
The second pizzeria, Oro's is not a highly regarded pizzeria, but is included for nearness reasons. You do get to go in and sit down here, and order drinks. However, you are not given enough time to finish it.
If you are interested in Chicago pizza, avoid this rip-off and just go to Uno's or Giardano's (the 3rd pizzeria). You can get an entire pizza at each for much less than the cost of this tour.
