Full description
Climb aboard the big yellow pizza bus for a tour of New York's finest pizzerias, some located in the outer boroughs to get a good cross-section of the city’s pizza diversity. This tour is led by Scott Weiner, pizza enthusiast and author. Scott's love of pizza has been featured on the Travel Channel, Food Network, New York Times, New York Magazine & the Wall Street Journal, to name a few. Although stops change weekly - making each tour unique - you can expect to find some of the best pizzerias on the whole damn planet! Even native New Yorkers rarely venture to some of these secluded havens. Before finding the best pizza in the city, factor in the many variables. In fact, it’s like asking an artist their favorite color! There are just too many options, from whether you want a sit-down restaurant, a slice or whole pie, with loads of cheese or different toppings. Every trip starts in Manhattan, but possible visits along the way may take you to Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. Wherever you end up, you will eat slices at 4 different venues, including pizzerias with the oldest brick ovens in the city, classic New York slice counters, and more; all while discussing the intricacies of pizza culture!
  • 4.5-hour course on the history of pizza!

Eat Pizza and see New York

I chose this food tour above many others because I have teenagers who love pizza and don’t much like walking! This tour has an air conditioned yellow school bus taking you from lower Manhattan to Harlem, the Bronx, Brooklyn to experience the best of NY’s pizza, pizzerias and their history. Scott is totally charming and hugely entertaining and is interesting and knowledgeable about Pizza and it’s ingredients. We we introduced to propitiators who were inviting and friendly and it was an all round great experience.
