I really enjoyed it but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. You go to 2 restaurants and sample a couple or 3 wines at each. The walking tour was really just walking from the 1st good restaurant to the 2nd good restaurant. But it was fun... met some great people and tried a couple of wines I'd never had before.

It was an amazing experience. Loved learning about how to taste the wines as well as learning the looks of the wine! Can't wait to try the other options as well. We did back bay.....awesome!

This was a lovely 2 hour walking tour of the Back Bay area of Boston. Really good wine selections and excellent snacks to go with the wines. Impressed enough with the snacks that we booked dinner at one of the restaurants Post 390 which was fabulous. Only issue was that Viator gave us and others the wrong address for the start of the tour luckily the Legal Sea Food we were told to meet at called the right one and we were able to meet the tour without being too, too late.

Enjoy every minute of this experience, Roz was truly knowledgeable in her wines. she was very sweet and got the job done. Learned a lot of new things about wines both red and white. I do think it was a bit pricey for only 2 restaurants and wine store.....think there should be more like 4, even three with the end being desert wines with desert to help close up the tour.......

The host was amazing. Unfortunately the restaurants mentioned on the website were different then the ones used during the trip. Also when I asked for a confirmation of the restaurants in a number of emails I sent, it wasn't mentioned that the restaurants/store were different. In stead of a restaurant the last stop was at Boston bottle, which was a store. As we were picked up by a taxi, it was hassle to get the taxi re-organized. All in all it was a good experience, however it would be good that the website and confirmation emails are more clear about the venues.

The North End wine tour was great. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable on various types of wines. i would highly recommend this tour to anyone trying to plan a nice afternoon in the north end.

Raz was great! Learned a lot and tried some great wines! Given this was Italian wine based, there were more red wines than white - only suggestion would be to even it out a bit more.

Other than that, it was a great day! Gave it to my mother as a gift for Christmas and she loved it. Good snacks and a good time.
