Larry_B, Jul 2022
the experience of the different food was very good. Our guides details of the building and the neighborhood gave us a good insight into living in that area of Boston.
Great Way to Experience Boston

Campbell was a great guide. We saw places and ate things that we would never have done on our own. We do a food tour in every big city that we visit and this one is one of the best! The next day, we went back to three of the stops to get more!
Funfilled tour

Totally unorganized tour and terrible guide. He spent more time asking about us than giving info or history. No food until 1hr into walk. No organized food plan. Dry tasteless food (except pizza) served w no drink, no seating. Overall very poorly planned tour and unknowledgeable, uninteresting guide. Waste of time and money.

ROBERT_M, Jul 2022
Our guide was nice and engaging. My biggest disappointment was the food on the tour which began at 1:00. It started with a cannoli which was great but not how we usually start a meal. The food was supposed to be a north end food tour- the rest of the food was a slice of a sandwich, a slice of a below average pizza (the guide asked us to rate it and with the exception of a 9 year old who gave it a 100 most people rated it at 6 or below), and a piece of bread. We were on a food tour of the north end! Really think that at $75/pp the quality of the food should be “upped” and for this reason I would not recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Jul 2022

Bob did a great job of giving us history and fun stories along the way. He was a lot of fun! The only thing we didn’t enjoy was we didn’t get much food for a “food tour”.
Wonderful Walking Tour in Boston

We all know Boston has a lot of history but seeing it was so nice. My wife and I have been on many tours and we believe out guide ( Bob ) was the most knowledgeable to a tour we have ever experienced. Definitely worth the money.
