Traveler Tips


The north end of Boston's Little Italy is a wonderful place to visit and induldge on pizza.
Well worth signing up and the 2 hours zipped by.
Perhaps a complimentary bottle of water to accompany the pizza slices would be a nice addition.

Delicious and informative!
Britt_E, Nov 2022
I’m from Massachusetts and I loved this tour! Tim is a wonderful tour guide and he showed me more of the city that I love. I saw things I’ve never seen! The pizza was awesome and we end with a Modern cannoli. The ONLY cannoli to be had in the north end!
WALKING tour! Great pizza and sights but up and down North End streets!
Annette_V, Nov 2022
Great pizza, tons of walking and history, great photo ops. Guide was fun and helped serve. At the end, great cannoli! Would have been nice to sit and eat pizza more, but lots of ground to cover.
No show
Julie_H, Nov 2022
Tour guide was a no show, someone from the tour came through saying he would find out where he was but never came back. Still awaiting refund. Unprofessional.
Excellent tour with great guide.
Daniel_L, Nov 2022
Tour guide was excellent, with some great local knowledge and a clear love of the area, community and city. pizza was great and some interesting bits of history and extra detail even for some places some of our group had seen before. Sadly after a few drinks, a hockey game and a memorable trip back the guides name has escaped me, but we went on the 11/19/22 tour at 2pm, so hopefully he can get the credit his work deserves.

Oh well
Andrew_L, Nov 2022
I apologize for missing the start time. We did not go as the lapsed time made us a non-show. I would encourage you to increase the value of the company by offering an event management service to assist with unforeseen complexities.
Great tour!

Grest pizza and our guide was knowledgeable. Very interesting there is a lot of history that you probably didn't know. Well worth the money
Deliciously historical
Natalie_S, Oct 2022
This tour was incredible! It goes WAY beyond pizza, which felt like a sidebar. The history lessons and stories were a full semester worth of info and pure entertainment. Scotty was THE BEST and most authentic guide. He was funny, engaging and interacted with our kids like he had known them for years. We walked away with very full bellies and a fresh perspective and curiosity for our country’s history. Thank you Scotty for an epic afternoon!!!!
Best Food Tour EVA!!

Scotty was a great tour guide. Casual and authentic- not typical more serious type. He was funny and was a great storyteller. Loved the tour. Pizza and added bonus - 3 types. A pub pizza style, siscillian and Boston style.
