Food Tour!
Madalyn_S, Jan 2023
It was great weather, we tasted yummy food, and the tour was very insightful in terms of the history of Boston and the at the places we stopped to try foods. Bob was nice and he was funny. The cannolis were really the best! Although I did not receive an email with the list of places we went, which I was told I would get. Overall it was a really nice experience and I would recommend to any one who is interested in food and a side of history.
Great Experience!

What a fabulous few hours!!! Adam was a fantastic guide - he shared so much interesting information about the North End. Not only information, but some delicious food as well! We enjoyed so much that we actually went back to a few of the spots the next day. Bravo and Grazie Mille Adam for sharing your love of Boston and the North End with us!

Loved our tour guide Nabil! We had such fun, it was like touring the Northend with a friend. Especially loved the hidden bakery, the story of Paul Revere, the North Church and the italian grocery store. Can't wait to get additional recommendations from our guide.

Allison was incredible! This was our favorite thing we did in Boston. The food was delicious but the history given and locals guide was the best!
Great Tour!

We had a wonderful guide. Connor was knowledgeable and up beat. He did an amazing job bringing us around, sharing the history of the North End. The food was amazing. Good thing I live in CT! I would gain 100 lbs if I lived close by. The sandwich, bread, pizza and cannoli were delicious. I would recommend this tour.

I especially enjoyed the food and the tour guide Mark was friendly and outgoing. It was interesting that he was not a native Bostonian.
Fabulous Tour!

Mark was a wonderful, knowledgeable, and most interesting guide, and the stops and food were wonderful.

It was a bit long. Would have preferred a smaller group. We had to leave earlier to check out by 4:00 at our hotel. I had done a tour many years ago with Michelle Topur that was amazing. This was not.
