Prohibition Tour

My husband, myself and another couple went on this tour together. The background research done was very good. Our guide, Sidney (Sydney??), was excellent!! She knew her stuff, was funny, let you know when you would be leaving, say 10 minutes, so you could settle your bill. It was fun trying new drinks and seeing the establishments. Our favorite speakeasy was Green Door Tavern for the atmosphere. Our favorite drinks were at Lucky's. It was a great experience. We had a really good time and would highly recommend this tour!

We are local Chicago all our lives so figured we had the pizza angle covered. Got the Pizza Tour for a Christmas Present and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The tour guide gave lots of interesting pizza and Chicago information along the way. The bus was big and roomy. The pizza was all delicious and plentiful. Won't be hard to convince our local friends to sign up for the tour.

The guide was both interesting and informative. The locations visited were great. It would be enthusiastically recommended, but the transportation broke down and there was no back up. Had to take cab back to the Loop.

Being a local my girlfriend and I usually do not do any "touristy" things. But this tour for sure is for anyone who loves pizza! Would definitely do this tour again with friends and family!

Dangerously hot bus for a toddler
Wed, Jul 29  11:00 AM jessica204 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Soooo I took this tour in the winter several years ago and had the time of my life! I have since told just about every person I've encountered that it was the best tour I've been on in any country, anytime, anywhere. Fast forward to the present: I made my husband travel with myself and my infant daughter for the sole purpose of going on this tour. There were definitely too many people and the bus air conditioning was broken. For an adult it was incredibly uncomfortable, for a toddler it was downright dangerous. Pretty unacceptable. The tour itself was just ok. I guess my expectations were really high based on my first experience. We went to different pizza places that were not as good as the first time and didn't get to go behind the scenes as I did on the first. But really, the large number of people made it feel impersonal and I couldn't hear the guide over all the talking. It now resembles all the other tours I've been on that I didn't like. Just getting shuttled from one place to another. Bummed.

My husband, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed our pizza tour of Chicago. Danny was a great tour guide - he told us about Chicago deep dish/thin crust pizza and gave info on the Chicago area3 in general. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chicago.

Stands out from all the rest

When someone ask us about what was the best thing from our trip to Chicago we both have answered with

The Chicago Pizza Tour! What an outstanding tour! Not only did we push ourselves outside our comfort zone on what we like on pizza, but we even liked it!! Thank you for the great memories.

We went to 4 amazing pizza places where the food and atmosphere was incredible. Also a great variety of drinks at each stop. The ride on the bus was great, Kevin, our host, was fantastic and made the time in between restaurants very enjoyable!

Drunks ruined the last part of the tour
Sat, Jul 25  4:00 PM TGreenwald Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The woman who was the guide was excellent. She obviously had a great deal of knowledge about the overall history of the era, as well as the history of each of the destinations, which was the reason for getting my 8 family members together for the tour. She was also very approachable regarding questions, and clearly enjoyed her job. The problem was that about 6 or 7 of the 19 passengers were so loud and obnoxious during the last part of the trip, that we could no longer hear the guide. She was clearly frustrated as well, yet remained professional throughout. Unless the Chicago Pizza Tours makes it clear from the beginning, including in their tour descriptions, that such behavior by their customers will not be tolerated, I cannot and do not recommend this tour. Now, I'm not someone who minds some quick retorts, and even some silly comments, but this went way too far. The tour had a great deal of potential, especially if you like history, but they made no effort to control their customers. If you want to have fun learning about the Prohibition, and pre-Prohibition history, along with checking out the "Speaks" and cocktails of the day, look elsewhere. If you want to get loaded and be driven from bar to bar to facilitate that, then this is the tour for you, although there are probably cheaper ways to accomplish that.

Good guide buzzkill bus
Fri, Jul 24  4:00 PM CKreil Female 30-39 Local Group of Friends
The tour guide was knowledgeable and fun. I learned a lot from her. I thought it was a fun experience to try but I'm not sure if do it again. The bars were ready to serve us which was good. But we had no time to drink. And getting back on the bus was a buzzkill. I recommend the bus fixes its air conditioning, takes us back to the starting location, and serve beer and water on the bus. I think a cooler of beer and water isn't too much to ask.
