  • In the morning when you are in the famous North End, all of the food stops are 100% owned and run by locals, ensuring that local people benefit from tourism to their city. So any inclusions on the tour and additional purchases you make will directly benefit the local community.

The Old North Church is a non-profit organization that works hard to educate school children and adults on American history and colonial life.

Our guide, Janet’s enthusiasm and knowledge of Boston and Boston’s marvelous history made the tour worthwhile. The cannoli and pizza in the North End were great as was the visit to North Church. Loved getting to shop at the Salumeria. However the afternoon was somewhat tiring due to only one break.
Fun day in Boston

What a great tour. Jim Bedingfeild our tour guide did an excellent job. He is knowledgeable, funny and did a great job keeping to the schedule without making you feel rushed. The tour is a perfect blend of enjoying the food on the North end and learning about Boston history and architecture.
Delicious, fun and captivating

Jim was an excellent tour guide! We were able to see a lot of Boston’s history in one day with delicious food and drinks along the way. You could tell our guide really loves Boston and is excited to share the joy of the city with anyone who wants to join in. This tour gives the perfect overview of all the city has to offer. I recommend taking the tour early in the trip when you have a couple more days to continue the fun and dive deeper into the parts that capture your interest most. Also great for a short stay when you want to fit a lot into one day.
