Delicious pizza explained by a local

We had a great time on this tour and learned a lot about Chicago and its pizza history. Danny, our tour guide, was great-- we could tell he had an in depth knowledge of the city and its pizza, and he was super fun and funny. I loved that the tour was on a bus so we could try different types of pizza in different neighborhoods, as well as see different parts of Chicago. It was also perfect for a cold, snowy day! I highly recommend this tour, but definitely come hungry! Don't pass up this chance for tons of delicious pizza!!

Danny, our tour guide, was excellent. He knows the history of Chicago Pizza like the back of your hand. His anecdotes about Chicago, the history of pizza, and the places we were headed to enlivened the tour and made it really remarkable. Only thing I'll say is COME HUNGRY. They say its 4 slices (one at each place) but its really more like 6-8 if you want to try everything. And there usually was seconds, too!

Much More than just Pizza

This was definitely a favourite tour on our trip to Chicago! Our guide Danny was entertaining and took great care to make connections with everyone on the tour (bus driver Carey was also great). We did learn about pizza in Chicago (many surprising facts) but our tour was much more than pizza. Danny was very knowledgeable about Chicago history and neighbourhoods. We took the tour as a fun way to get lunch but came away with a great introduction to Chicago. We were very glad this was our first activity in the city.
