  • 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.

Both the Old North Church and King's Chapel are non-profit organizations that work hard to educate school children and adults on American history and colonial life. By paying an entrance fee, you are helping to maintain the church and their work.

Make This the First Activity You Do in Boston.

Our guide was Sully (Keith), a local who loves the city of Boston. He was excited to share the stories of Boston and his own personal connection with the areas we visited. The stops we made for food were wonderful! Sully answered lots of questions and was not afraid to say “I don’t know,’ if he didn’t have an answer. Even with various COVID-19 restrictions in place it was a great tour for the money. Our group was very small, which helped make it personal and enjoyable. If you are spending a few days in downtown Boston, do this tour first. It will help you figure out what you will want to do with the rest of your time.

Even though it was cold and raining tour day it was interesting and fun! Our guide, Dillion, was awesome! He was entertaining and gave full details on everything wherever we were at. This tour is so worth it! Just be prepared to walk the whole 5 hours with a few stops with sampling some delicious foods and drinks.

Corrine and Dave were amazing. Very knowledgeable and flexible. Really liked the freedom trail history and the cannoli and sandwich shop. I think 2 food stops is sufficient vs 4 in that time frame and there should be a beer stop.

An incredible experience to learn about Boston's history, culture, and food!

This was our first trip to Boston. We signed up for the five hour food and history tour to introduce ourselves to Boston. The tour was perfect. We learned so much about the people and history of Boston....where much of our country's ideas and values were born. The food was great and so much of it, I could not eat it all. I loved the cappuccino and cannoli we had at an old coffee shop in the North End. The tour guides were interesting and fun. I also think this tour is good for locals as well to learn details of their city! If you think five hours is too long (it went by fast), you always have the option to leave the tour when you think it is time or if you have other plans. I recommend this tour for food lovers and those interested in history!

Visiting the Italian bakery, so authentic and delicious. Bob showed us some amazing places with unique background history. Having Italian sandwiches in the North Church square was a great experience.
