Tour Details

All tours include pizza tastings, kitchen tours, in-depth pizza analysis, and everybody gets a take-home Pocket Pizza Journal to help track their tastings.

All tours run rain or shine. Tour itineraries may change if weather becomes a problem but we will always run complete tours. Please remember to wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately, as we will be outside for most of the tour.

Tours have a limited capacity and often sell out. If you are planning to make reservations for several people, it’s a good idea to purchase tickets well in advance. Tickets may be purchased with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express. 

Children under the age of 4 are welcome to join us free of charge as long as you are willing to share your slices with them. Limit is one child under 4 per adult. All others must purchase a general ticket.

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.

Most of the walking tours are wheelchair accessible. The only walking tours that are not fully accessible yet are the North and South Village Pizza Walks, in which two of our stops have a few steps and no ramps. Restrooms will also be available to customers at most pizzerias.

YES! No matter how long you’ve lived in New York there are certainly pizzerias you have never visited. In fact, New Yorkers tend to be least aware of the pizza possibilities in their own backyards!

YES! Your guide is licensed by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs to take you on a unique NYC tour by way of its pizza. Most tourists want to see the city and eat its pizza; Scott’s Pizza Tours let you do both!

Participants are provided with at least one slice at each of the three pizzerias we visit. If you fall in love with a particular slice, feel free to order a pie or two to-go. Just remember to bring cash, as the classic pizzerias don’t take credit.

Scott’s Pizza Tours draw its stops from a bank of several pizzerias. Every stop is chosen after careful research and taste-testing. We must also take into account each stop’s location in relation to our tour routing. New York is a big place and there is a lot of great pizza out there so please feel free to make suggestions via our contact form.

We don’t! The group will only taste cheese slices. This maintains a uniform standard upon which to evaluate the slices we consume. If you would like any extra slices with toppings, you may order them at your own cost.
