What You Can Expect

Boston Pizza and Taverns Tour

Taste the Best Pizza in Boston

Delight in Boston’s best pizza and beer on this historic 3-hour walking tour around the city. After meeting the guide, begin this Boston pub crawl in the North End, the oldest neighborhood in the city. A slice of pizza at this end of town equals a slice of history. In fact, the infamous Great Brink’s Robbery happened here, the largest heist in the history of the United States at the time, back in 1950.

The fun has only begun. Head to Charlestown to see the sites, including the Bunker Hill Monument, the USS Constitution and a tavern that dates back to 1785. Have another helping of pizza here before taking a quick ferry ride to the historic Long Wharf pier. Check out Old North Church, where the famous “One if by land, and two if by sea” signal is said to have been sent, and the Old State House, the oldest public building still standing in Boston. Get an amazing view of Boston Harbor and the city skyline from Fan Pier.

It’s a short walk back to the North End for a final piece of pizza and a trip to the Blackstone Block, the oldest commercial district in Boston. The tour ends at either Bell in Hand, the longest continuously operating tavern in the United States, or the Green Dragon, a basement tavern known as the Headquarters of the Revolution. Have a cold one to commemorate the moment and toast the day.

Great day with good group. Plenty to eat and drink and useful info to fill in the walks . Tour guide was very relaxed and we ran over time which just added to the fun


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

Great group and great tour. Hostess Nicole was very informative and also very relaxed as we ran long. Plenty to eat and a variety of Taverns to visit and buy drinks. Right amount of walking between stops and even a sunset ferry trip - which was not supposed to be at Sunset: One of those magic days you don't really want to end. Surprising amount of historical information provided as well . Best tour of its type I have done

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide sorry I forgot his name was very enthusiastic and you could tell he loved Boston. The pizza was great and you even got to eat outside. I was a solo traveller and there was also a family and we all had a great time. I would recommend this tour as great value for money and so enjoyable

What a great way to combine a history lesson with slices of Little Italy pizza! Martin was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. We felt like we saw quite a bit of the Old North End and Charlestown areas, walking quite a bit of the Freedom Trail and all the sights there. Each slice of pizza was very tasty, however, two of the three slices were plain cheese pizza... for the price of the tour, I would expect more toppings on the pizza.

There was about 4 miles of walking . It was cold out and we had to eat our pizza outdoors at the first stop. Only cheese pizza was served . Maybe I'd be more positive if the weather had been better . Also I wouldn't recommend going on a Friday night . The pizza shops are too busy then . We did enjoy the tour and narration .
