Scott’s Pizza Tours
Now featuring weekly walking tours!
Scott says: “When I started my New York pizza tours two months ago, I was amazed at the incredible response. I quickly received accolades from FOX 5, the Daily News, Epoch Times, Gothamist and several other metro-area publications. Shifting gears a bit, I’ve decided to expand my business to include walking tours of the city’s historic pizzerias and pizza-related locations. This Wednesday begins a summer long schedule of 3-hour walking tours through pizza history, starting at the country’s first pizzeria: Lombardi’s!“
NY walking tour serves slices of history

- “You have to admire someone who has thrown himself so enthusiastically into his work, his mission.” – Garden Plate Magazine
Among the endless array of NYC walking tours, there is only one that concentrates on the city’s rich pizza culture. Scott’s Pizza Tours, proud operator of the NY Pizza Bus, is proud to announce the launch of the first ever New York Pizza Walk. These 3-hour tours meet every Wednesday at 11 AM in Little Italy, beginning July 2.
The tour combines history, technology, culture and of course, PIZZA! “It’s the perfect summertime excursion,” explains 26-year old Wiener, who left a position in municipal
government last year to start a pizza tour company.
Scott is proud to be a licensed New York City guide.

Are you new to Hoboken and want a “Pizza Education?” Or are you sick of the relatively poor choices in town, but are unsure of where to go in New York City?
Well Scott’s Pizza Tours is your solution.
Guided Pizza Tours from a Hoboken resident
“Scott Wiener is a weathered traveler who has searched far and wide for great pizza. He developed a deep appreciation for New York pizza while traveling cross-country, noting both delicious and abysmal pies in his Pizza Journal. While some gems did pop up, nothing quite matched the quality of the pizza back home.
Pizza soon became an obsession, as Scott’s beloved Pizza Journal provided empty pages that begged to be filled. The media even took interest and Scott found himself in Las Vegas, judging twenty pizzas for Pizza Today Magazine’s International Pizza Expo in 2007.
New Jersey’s Garden Plate Magazine says “Call Scott Wiener what you want — crazed, possessed, in serious need of a life — but you have to admire someone who has thrown himself so enthusiastically into his work, his mission.”
With this mission clear, Scott has made it his duty to deliver the people to the pizza. Armed with a NYC Sightseeing Guide license and an unstoppable hunger, Scott is ready to share his favorite slices with you.”
Pizza tours run every Sunday, and the locations vary weekly. Has anyone tried it yet or is planning to?
