This exceeded my expectations, and I was hoping for a great time! John was an excellent guide who knows A LOT of interesting pizza history. He made the adventure fun and relaxed. I ate all that I could eat and loved every bite. Def recommendation. Even if you live in the Chicago area, you'll learn so much about pizza history and the families (and machines) that make it famous.

Awesome tour! Highly recommend. Be warned, it's a lot of Pizza. First time I ever had the Pizza sweats. Definitely take the bus tour.

John Porter was an awesome guide. He has an incredible knowledge of pizza and the history of pizza in Chicago. We had pizza at 4 restaurants, trying multiple styles and toppings at each. We even got to tour the kitchen and see the ovens at 2 restaurants. One of the best tours we’ve ever taken in any city. We also made some friends and met amazing people on the tour (both locals and tourists like us).

It’s been over a week since I went on this tour and I think about the pizza I ate every day, like I can’t get it out of my head. The tour guide had so much to talk about and everyone was free to join the conversation, it was very chill. Highly recommend

My family and I are locals and had an amazing time! We felt taken care of from the get go. The pizza stops were all unique and different, and the history/facts added so much life to the tour. Highly recommend!!

OSCAR J

We were able to schedule a tour with Jon at our convenience. He was very accommodating. The level of energy and knowledge he puts into the whole event is phenomenal. We were a group of nine and had a great time, laughed a lot, learned pizza and Chicago history and ate the best pizza we have ever had - all from different perspectives. I highly recommend Chicago Pizza Tours.

It was an awesome tour. Our tour guide, James, was absolutely fantastic. He made sure the timing of all stops were perfect. The food was hot and ready for us the moment we arrived. The places we went to were top-notch. As visitors from Omaha, this tour was fabulous and highly recommend!
