private pizza bus
This culinary adventure stops at up to 4 incredible pizzerias, each of which features a unique pizza style. Each guest gets a slice at every stop plus a Pocket Pizza Journal to keep track of tasting notes.
Private Pizza Walk
Visit three of NYC’s top pizzerias as you stroll through New York’s most beautiful neighborhoods. You’ll learn the history and science that makes each stop special. And of course, pizza is always included.
No Limits tour
This hardcore pizza crawl hits as many pizzerias as possible within 3 hours. Pricing accounts for travel by foot but we can hop into cabs or subways to suit your mission.
All private tours include pizza at every stop, goody bags (aka Pizza Tour Survival Kits) with palate cleansers, breath fresheners, pizza candies, wet naps and Pocket Pizza Journals. Most private tours are led by company founder (and Guinness World Record holder for the largest collection of pizza boxes) Scott Wiener.
The sad truth is that most great pizzerias in NYC do not have options for those with specific dietary restrictions. We’ll do our best to arrange for a gluten and/or cheese-free pizza at one stop but can’t guarantee. The best option is to give us ample notice or ask for a specialty tour to visit pizzerias that fit your criteria.
We have operated vegan and gluten free tours in the past. Sorry, kosher friends, we have yet to find enough good kosher pizzerias to assemble a worthy pizza tour.
It is highly recommended that you bring a refillable container for water. We discourage the use of bottled water, as New York’s tap water is among the cleanest and tastiest in the country. You’ll also want to bring a camera, your love of adventure and an insatiable appetite.
Every tour is structured based on the group. We love getting into detail about pizza science and history, but some groups prefer to relax and mingle. We’re able to facilitate both extremes. As far as deciding upon tour stops, we’re happy to tailor the tour to your taste, but prefer to retain final decision-making duties. Navigating NYC’s pizzerias is what we do and we have a great track record of creating routes that serve our clients’ needs.
we’re kinda famous
(so we're told)

YES! We can arrange for the bus to pick you up at a central location in Manhattan at the start of your tour. For weekend tours, we prefer to have the group meet at our first pizzeria, in which case we’ll end the tour with a drop off at a Manhattan location of your choosing.
You are welcome to bring beverages aboard the bus on private tours for a $150 BYOB fee. We also have an option to add a wine pairing at each pizzeria. When bringing beverages aboard the bus, you must drink out of bottles, cans, or cups with lids. Again, if you’re planning to pour wine into a cup, that cup needs to have a lid. Wine and beer are OK, but hard liquor is prohibited on the bus. We can’t bring anything into most pizzerias we visit, but you are welcome to purchase beverages as you wish.
No! We organize our tours in advance to avoid long lines and cold slices. All pizzas are ordered based on their respective bake times, so we’re never waiting more than a few minutes for a fresh pie.
We’ve done tons of corporate outings and team-building events and the response has been incredible. Rather than sit for a long meal at a single restaurant, a pizza tour lets your family or company mix and mingle at multiple pizzerias. Pizza is the ultimate conversation starter so you’ll learn more about your colleagues in three hours than you have over the past three years.
