I will try to answer the best I can but keep in mind when we do Scott's tour as a group, we usually do a private tour so it's a little different from his normal tour, BUT, we have done his normal tour as well, so....

This is correct. I think he *might* do 20 at the most, but I'm not sure his exact numbers.
It looks like you eat one slice of pizza at each place. Do you get to choose beforehand what types of toppings people want, or do they offer a couple different varieties of their best pizzas and you simply sample one slice from whichever you choose and can opt for the "bonus slice"? It looks like the latter, but I was just curious how that worked.
The idea of the pizza tour is to compare slices between each place to you stop. So you get 1 slice of cheese pizza to keep everything consistent at each pizzeria. *sometimes* depending on the nature of the tour and where you go, there might be something different that mixes it up (each tour seems to have a personality of it's own), but for the most part, sticking to the basics of the tour, it's one cheese slice per location visited.
I also noticed that in a few photos, there were pizza photos taken outdoors. Is that extra that you guys bought, or did you choose to eat or take photos outdoors because the store was so busy?
Some of the "slice shops" don't actually have indoor seating, or not enough to accommodate the tour group, so you go at it picnic style! It always has worked just fine like this.
Also, do most serve beer? I know this is being particular and I could certainly go without if they didn't...but pizza and beer for me is probably the best combo meal on the planet! If most do, then I would probably want to do the bus tour as opposed to walking!
You're not really at a place long enough to probably enjoy a beer and again the nature of the tour isn't really about drinking. I'm sure if you have some extra time at one of the places you could probably order a beer on the side, but I don't think in any of the tours I've been on I've seen someone do this.
Hope that helps!
