North End Pizza & History - What’s Not to Like?
Cheryl_N, Apr 2024
Great guide with relevant & fun stories to share the history of the neighborhood. The walk, the pizza & cannelloni combined with the 2 hr duration were perfect. My daughter & I highly recommend this ‘ticket’.
Very Disappointing
Denise_B, Mar 2024
The first stop didn’t know we were coming so it took a while to get our pizza. The second stop was closed because it was Easter Sunday. This was a small group of 7. A family of 4, a dad and his teenage daughter, and myself. It was very crowded. The tour guide and the family turned a corner and we didn’t see them and the three of us went straight. Mid block we discovered they were gone. We went back to the intersection, no guide. We waited at least 15 minutes and tried to contact company. No luck. The dad remembered the name of the 3rd stop, googled it and we found them there.

Alison_L, Mar 2024
We had a such a fun time with our tour guide Scottie. He was upbeat, friendly and very knowledgeable. We got to learn more about the area and the deep history. He went above and beyond for us. We were cold and he offer us gloves and made sure we all had water to drink. Best part was eating the delicious pizza.
Pizza and History in the North End
Steve_F, Mar 2024
This is our 6th Pizza tour and has become a staple when we come to Boston. Sure the pizza is amazing. This time it was Modern and Umberto’s and Ernesto’s. All are great and for different reasons. Whether it be the sauce, the cheese, the toppings, or the crust there is something for everyone. What makes it special is the walk around the North End and the history of this Little Italy during the formative years of the United States. The guides bring their enthusiasm and knowledge to this part of Boston. Looking forward to number 7 later this summer. Check it out.

Scotty was great! Best for older kids, fun history of North End. Make sure you bring your appetite! 3 different pizza shops and cannoli! All food was great.
Delicious and Fact Filled Tour
Mark_E, Nov 2023
I can’t say enough good things about this tour. The food, the sites and our guide Scottie were all amazing. Scottie’s knowledge was incredible. We took away so much information and great facts that we were so excited to share with other family members. The pizza was delicious but the best thing we ate was the cannoli. Fresh and not too sweet it was the best way to end our fact and fun filled tour. I will definitely recommend this tour to others but they have to do it with Scottie.
Great experience learning...
