Over the course of two hours, Slice of Chicago Pizza Tours' team escorts pizza-lovers to three of Chicago's famed pizzerias. Tours start at Pizzeria Uno, the birthplace of deep dish, where guests can thank the birth oven personally before sampling gooey morsels of Uno's original recipe. Next, tour goers compare and contrast slices' tastescapes at Pizzeria Ora, whose owner still greets each customer at the door and plies his patrons with pies overflowing with fresh ingredients. The tour culminates as pie aficionados scarf down one of the city's cheesiest pizzas at Giordano's.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely phenomenal! I have lived in the city for over 2 years and always thought something like this sounded like fun. I couldn't be more glad at that I did. It was well worth every penny and much much more. I learned a ton and have a great time! The tour guide was outstanding and very personable! Absolutely nothing negative to say about this experience!
