      Gabe was phenomenal! He is definitely knowledgeable about history and into yummy food items on Boston. The best part is his personality. He made the entire 3 hours full of fun. And oh boy the clam chowder and the lobster roll on top of all the other great food. To die for!! Highly recommend this tour.
      Read the review. It could happen to you
      Robyn_B, Aug 2022
      The 1st three stops were great. The whole experience took a nose dive after that. We had a hard time understanding our guide. He was not native to this country. We had a few stops that had no place for us to sit or wouldn't acomidate us. So we had to walk a few blocks to find a place to sit outside and eat in the heat. I had to run across the street to get some of us something to drink. By the end our group had decreased by half.

      Gabriel was great! Would have like more of the pastrami it was great. Need to find a different place for pizza. It was big but not very good. Had better frozen pizza from a store. Everything else was fantastic.

      A solid walking tour...with food!
      Jason_K, Jul 2022
      Our scheduled tour guide called in sick last minute, so Liam hopped in to save the day. He escorted us throughout Little Italy and the Northend with lots of interesting and historic sites pointed out. He also walked us through six different food experiences, including: clam chowder, roasted nuts, pastrami, an Italian sandwich, a slice of pizza, lobster ravioli, and cannoli. Overall, the food was a good sampling of classic and interesting, though some items were more appealing than others. We stayed in the shade (it was July and hot) most of the time, which was very helpful. The tour was supposed to end at 2pm, but went over, which caused some stress because we had another tour to get to at 3pm and had to travel a bit to get there. Better adherence to the timeframe (or at least asking if anyone had a hard stop) would be a good idea in the future. All in all, we had a great time and would recommend it as a nice, guided way to explore part of Boston with some food along the way.
      Very Disappointing
      Lisa_G, Jun 2022
      We have been on a lot of great food tours through our travels and I’m sad to say that this was the wors that we’ve ever experienced. The tour guide did not provide much information about the restaurants and was not engaging. The food was mediocre at best. I think the lobster roll (pictured) was replaced with lukewarm clam chowder and dry cornbread. Pizza was not tasty and again lukewarm. Take the money that you’d spend on this tour and buy a nice meal at one of the many fantastic restaurants of the North’ll be much happier.

      Our guide Liam was very energetic and engaging. He took time to get to know each of us on the tour. (8 total) He engaged with each group and answered all our side questions as well as filling us with insightful information about the history of Boston's North end. Each stop on the tour served excellent food from roasted nuts in the Boston Market to lobster ravioli, pizza, deli sandwiches and a cannoli from Modern pastry to end the tour. The pace was perfect and the food was filling.
      Great experience in the North End of Boston.
      Maureen_R, Jun 2022

      Great Guide!!!
      Alicia_W, May 2022
      Liam was amazing the entire tour. He took us to all the best spots on the North End, and gave us a top tier history lesson on each spot. We also learned a lot about Boston and a lot of other random facts that kept the tour entertaining. The food was GREAT, the scenery and architecture was AWESOME, and I definitely would come back!!

      Annie_E, May 2022
      I traveled to Boston for a conference and my boyfriend joined me as neither of us had been. We arrived a day early to see the city and could not have picked a better way to see the city and sample all the amazing food that it has to offer. Fantastic time, tour guide was knowledgeable and fun, food was amazing.

      Bostonian Food is Culture
      David_B, Apr 2022
      Great food along with a historic tour of Boston. Liam was a fantastic tour guide, and hooked us up with the best plates from some of the best, most iconic food scenes in Boston. In between the food stops your group makes, Liam took us to historic sites and landmarks, sharing into the stories behind them. Highly recommend over any other tour, because its intimate, fun, and learning on a happy stomach is so good. 😊
