  • 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.

Not Your Average Tour

So...this tour was not what I expected, let me start with that. I misread the description and thought it was a food tour AND the Freedom Trail Walk. It is NOT that. The food tour was what I expected, but the history part of the tour touched on some parts of the Freedom Trail, but also had some other Boston history. It also rained almost the whole time (couldn't help that). We very much enjoyed the tour anyway, and learned some things we would not have learned any other way. Our guide, Jim, did a fantastic job of keeping us interested and answering questions. He was knowledgeable and personable. I would definitely recommend this tour and our tour guide!

Insist on having Jim as your guide! Fantastic job of making a Philly want to move to Boston. History was expected but Jim made it fun! Seeing things we would have never found ourselves, and would never eaten made the day phenomenal!

This was the best way to get an overiew of the people and sights in the city of Boston. It was a total delight.

seeing inside the old bakery and tasting their wonderful bread was delightful. The Italian sub was delicious from the deli and after that, the cannoli and cappacino at the quaint old Italian cafe with old artifacts was fun and special. Our tour guide was very informative and interesting. We finished with thin crust pizza in a park area and savored the beautiful scenery. Later, we walked further along the freedom trail and found the neighborhoods beautiful and so fascinating. We could not have been more pleased with this tour or our guide, Sully.
