Lucy was knowledgeable but not as seasoned a tour guide as one might expect given the price of the tour. It was difficult to hear her and she seemed to struggle to keep the group engaged. The other tour that left at the same time lost a couple and they found ours -Lucy seemed confused on what you do and did not offer to call the other guide until someone in our group suggested it. We then had to backtrack to get a few more who joined our group at the midpoint. That was a bit frustrating. We ended up leaving about 4 hours in as it just wasn’t keeping our interest at that point.

Very good tour but needs more food components

We just had the tour with Tim in June and had a really good time! He was so knowledgeable and shared a different perspective on the history which was very much appreciated. A couple of critiques I would share are this tour combines a separate food AND history tour and it was not clear that was the case from the tour description. You do a 1.5-2 hour food tour and then the rest is the history tour. To make this tour better I would add 2 more small food stops and shorten the overall tour by an hour. A 5 hr tour was just a little too long for us at least. If you do do this tour be prepared to be out and about for a long time!

Dillon and Adam were very knowledgeable and fun to be with…which is vitally important for a tour of this length. However, it did not feel 5 hours. Loved the combo of the North End with the Freedom Trail. The entire family loved the experience and came away learning so much about this wonderful city.

Fantastic tour guide with both great knowledge and fun personality. The tour is long but definitely worth it. It would have been good to split up the food stops; however, understand it's done that way to provide food on North End tour for first half and more history for the second half. Appreciated the food stops were not necessarily the tourist must go places but more authentic food to Bostonians. Enjoyed the tour very much!

Outstanding. Our tour guide was Dillon, who did an incredible job leading us through the North End and many historical sites. We enjoyed every minute, except having to say goodbye. The food is plentiful and not sample sizes as we had thought. This was our favorite tour in during our stay. Thank you Dillon!

Campbell the tour guide and Lucy the trainee were both knowledgeable and great tandem really. Love Campbell’s little side stories, comments, additional info. The food and places at the NorthEnd were amazing especially the cannoli cappuccino stop and the sandwich at the salumeria were my fav.. Appreciate too the drink from the nonprofit place. Great guides, great stops and stories! Best, the combo of history and food!
