Ok, not great but could be
Peter_B, Apr 2024
This was a nice outing, but it could be so much better. The food, we were six people eating a reverse order. We were first taken to get a slice of bread, we didn't choose. Then we went to have cannoli and cappuccino. Afterwards we were given 1/4 of a sandwich for four of us and two got a half each, kind of ridiculous. Each person should at least get a half sandwich. The six of us then split a personal pizza, on slice each, seriously. We got to see the North end, we got to hear some history and see some sights, but the order of the food and lack of choice left something to be desired. We should be given a couple of choices, larger portions and desert at the end not the beginning of the tour. We walked past the Paul Revere house with out going in, for $6 bucks a little more time would have been time well spent. No narration or information on the North Church.
The guide was excellent....
Nancy_R, Apr 2024
The guide was excellent. He had a strong clear voice, made sure everyone was included, was engaging and knowledgeable. I liked the pace of the tour.
Fun and worthwhile
Mary_E, Mar 2024
Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic about the North End. We were offered a good assortment of food items ( Cannoli, cappuccino, pizza, Italian sandwich, freshly baked bread), along with the history of each establishment. The weather was extremely cold and windy, but we moved along at a comfortable pace and each stop was well planned. We never got too cold or uncomfortable. This tour was well worth the cost and left us planning to come back for another visit.
Enjoyed the Tour!!
Alan_M, Mar 2024
Our tour guide, Bob, was excellent. We had 4 stops to fry cannoli, fresh Italian bread, pizza and an Italian sub. All the food was tasty. Also received a nice history lesson of both Boston and the North End.
2nd Tour of North End Even Better
Kurt_K, Mar 2024
Chantha was a fabulous guide not only during the tour but also emailing us after the tour providing a summary of what we visited as well as other recommendations of what to do in Boston. I’ve taken this tour twice and this was the better experience.
Great way to spend a couple hours - come hungry! 😁
Lisa_W, Mar 2024
Our guide Tim was very knowledgeable and enthusiastically shared stories about the area we toured - current day and historical. He showed us out of the way places to find great food and gave us recommendations for other places to check out on our own. Food tastings were great - good portion sizes, consider the whole tour a meal! The group was really small so we were able to tweak the tour plan to take in a couple spots of interest to the group along the way. 10 out of 10 - definitely recommend.
Bob was a great tour...
Susan_R, Mar 2024
Bob was a great tour guide. Good mix of history pop culture and food. He did a good job of incorporating the group into his discussion.
Great Guide But Not Worth the Price in the Off-Season
Brian_C, Mar 2024
The guide was informative and friendly and the star rating is not in any way a reflection on his great tour comments and overall personality. The food stops were also wonderful with a good selection of favorites from the famous Italian neighborhoods of the North End. The only disappointment is that the booking supposedly included admission to Old North Church (or equivalent) and didn't. The church was closed, probably due to it being the off-season in early March, but there was no corresponding adjustment. Not sure how much the food came to, but without admission to something this seemed overpriced. But not a bad tour with a number of good spots around the North End. And again, the tour guide was fabulous.
Tasty tour
Jeff_P, Mar 2024
We loved the excellent variety of foods from different restaurants. Our tour guide, Tim, was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Fun way to experience history and food with local insight
Page_E, Feb 2024
Molly was great - warm, knowledgeable, made it all look easy (including a last minute itinerary switch due to a closed shop that turned out GREAT)
Perfect Little North End Tour
Erika_R, Jan 2024
Molly was great! Food was absolutely perfect and we learned a bit about the history of the North End too! Exceeded our expectations. We did the 2 hr tour and it was just the right amount of time.
Great tour!
Maureen_C, Jan 2024
I participated in this tour on a cold day in early January. Our tour guide Chanta was very knowledge and informative. The food was excellent and a good representation of the North End of Boston. This tour is good for adults and children (probably 8+) who like to eat good regional food.
Fun Tour!
Autumn_M, Jan 2024
Chantha was a great tour guide! My boyfriend and I had a fun time learning more about the city we call home and trying favorite spots of the locals!

Boston's Italian Flavors: A Culinary Delight with Nabil
A_C, Dec 2023
I had an amazing time on the Italian food tour in Boston with Nabil as our guide. The delicious food, rich history, and Nabil's passion made it a standout experience. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to savor Italian flavors and Boston's culinary heritage.
Delicious Italian Food sampling with a great tour guide - Adam
Brenda_D, Nov 2023
I was seeking a fun family activity for my husbands birthday. The North End tour with Adam was great! As a local North of Boston family with prior history and experience in the North End, Adam crafted the tour to bring us to a few spots my husband hadn’t been to or heard of. As well, given he is a full time middle school Social Studies Adam knew how to converse with my 13 and 10 year olds and make the tour fun and yummy for them too. A great way to spend two+ hours on a Saturday afternoon while learning history and eating delicious food!
History and Food!
Kim_A, Nov 2023
This was the first thing I did after arriving for a solo business trip in Boston and I absolutely loved it. Our guide Lucy was amazing. It was the perfect blend of historical sites and food!
Great way to take in the North End.
Pamela_B, Nov 2023
Adam was personable and knowledgeable. He told great stories and made us laugh. We enjoyed our tour tremendously.
