Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did the Walking Tour which was led by Chicago Pizza Tours founder, Jonathan. One of the best tourist experiences we’ve ever had. What a great way to see the city and get to taste the magic of (arguably*) the greatest pizza city in the world.

Jonathan is a self-confessed pizza nerd and so wonderfully knowledgeable about the history of pizza in Chicago! We hit 4 different pizzerias on a Monday afternoon sampling the different tastes and styles. It was entertaining, informative, and delicious! We talked to the chefs, we learned their methods, we learned how their passion for pizza led them to perfect the pies they serve to this great city!

If you love pizza and you’re in Chicago, take this tour. If you love Chicago and like pizza, take this tour! If you love food and the evolution of different cuisines, take this tour.

Just TAKE THIS TOUR! Amazing!!!

* Okay, it’s clearly New York but Chicago is in the conversation.

Our walking pizza tour experience was fantastic. There were just the two of us and our guide Jon. Jon had a great knowledge of pizza, each restaurant and the owners, plus some great historical facts about the neighborhoods we visited. The pizza was awesome. Great first day experience in Chicago! I recommend this tour to everyone!

Jon was very knowledgeable and gave great insights into the four different pizzas we tried. He did a great job of explaining explaining the differences in crusts, toppings and sauces. He also shared details about the owners and history of each place. Worth the time and the pizza was delicious!

This tour was definitely more than what I expected! The guide was a complete sweetheart and yes this may be his job of XX amount of years but I couldn't get over how knowledge he was. It didn't feel like you were sitting in a history class but it was enough information to make this tour more than just tasting slices and moving on. The time flew, our crowd was so diverse with people joining us from all around the country! We were celebrating my boyfriend's 30th and everyone was so welcoming and in a celebratory mood! A great experience for a travel and speaking as someone who resides in the suburbs of Illinois, this tour's a must try!!

It was a beautiful day to have a walking pizza tour with Jon. Our four pizza stops were delicious!! Jon is very knowledgeable about the history of pizza and of the establishments and owners of the places we visited. Everything ran smoothly and it was a delightful tour. When in Chicago, take the time to enjoy this tour.

My family and I truly enjoyed this pizza tour. We have two young children and they enjoyed the pizza as well. I enjoyed hearing about the history of each of the 4 places we visited. John is a great tour guide and kept the the tour fun and interesting. The day after we ended up going to one of the pizza places we liked the best. I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and had many interesting stories about the history of the individual restaurants. Easy walks between restaurants with just enough time to digest and be ready to eat again. Everyone in my family thought this interesting with good food.

Our guide truly loves pizza! Interesting history of each restaurant and each the owners journey to perfect their own pizza. Great sample of different types. Totally full by the end. We’ve done food tours in other cities and got more history. This is strictly pizza lore.

We had a terrific time on this tour. My wife and I did a New York pizza tour last year, so she was a bit apprehensive. It was completely different and just as fun! Jon is a walking encyclopedia of Chicago pizza history and an amazing storyteller. He really gets into the personalities behind Chicago’s storied pizza past and present. We absolutely loved this guy and the tour. (Skeptics—this not a tour of just deep dish places.)

John was a passionate and informative guide. His passion for pizza was incredible.
Intimate knowledge of the history of each of the 4 stops. Easy walk and saw parts of Chicago I’ve never seen before after multiple trips. Highly recommended.
