Seven Google Mappers give Slice of Chicago Pizza Tours 4.5 stars:
- For less than the price of dinner anywhere else in that area, you'll get to sample some great pizza (there was plenty left over, so you won't walk away hungry), pick up some fascinating history about Chicago's pizza industry, and probably meet some other great people. – Ruben, Google Maps
- The tour was perfect for us--we learned a little, had great pizza and just had a good time…the walk wasn't too far and I was able to manage the distance withouth [sic] any great discomfort, so I think it's a good tour for older people and kids too. – John, Google Maps
