What You Can Expect
Work your way through a maze of winding colonial-era streets and learn about some of the most significant moments in American history, such as the American Revolution and the Boston Tea Party. You'll also walk through Haymarket, one of the longest standing outdoor markets where many in the North End can still buy their groceries.
Discover how longshoremen (dock workers) came to call the North End home as the city’s shipping industry developed over time. Once home to African slaves, the area soon filled with Portuguese, Jewish, Irish and Italian immigrants. Learn how the area’s diverse ethnic and racial influences have evolved since the country’s inception more than 200 years ago.
After your walking tour, grab a bite to eat at one of the many delicious Italian restaurants -- the North End is known for exquisite Italian cuisine!
It was just two of us and we have very private tour. A lot of walking, but it worth it!
Our guide was fantastic! We were the only two on the tour and she structured the tour just for us! We got to see lots of areas of Boston and not just the tourist sites!
Good, informative, tour. Would include tasting tour as walked would have been fun too!
It was wonderful. Our guide Jessica was knowledgeable and passionate about the North End of Boston. She showed us the most delicious pizza place! Would highly recommend.
Excellent tour, highly recommended. The guide, Jessica, provided in-depth explanation, was friendly, very knowledgeable and even entertaining. Hers and her family's background in the historical North End, made the tour enriching and educational at the same time.
There were only 4 people in our tour including us. Our guide was wonderful!!!!!!!!!
It rained the day of the tour, but our guide, Jessica, was fantastic! She was a wealth of information on Boston and history in general and we have recommended the tour to a number of our friends.
Jessica, our tour guide, had a wealth of knowledge. She was also able to recommend a place to eat lunch. "Great suggestion!" We enjoyed it. Thanks
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. A worthwhile tour as we would not have appreciated many of the places we saw or noticed them on our own. Perhaps a little too much time was spent looking at diagrams and maps. We would have liked to cover more ground. Nonetheless a job well done.
Very good tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Lucky for me it ended up a one on one, so gained insights I most probably wouldn't have otherwise, but was still taken on an interested journey through Boston's History
