A must for all while in Boston

This was the best food tour that my family has ever taken and we have done more than 10. Great combination of food, history, with a little crime mixed in. Our tour was led by Audrey, who was magnificent!

Sometimes reviews leave us a little verklempted! We're thrilled that we not only met your expectations, but also surpassed them. Thank for joining us, and for such thoughtful feedback, which we'll continue to strive to live up to. We hope that we'll have another opportunity to share Boston's best eats with you in the future.
Worth it!

Audrey was a wonderful guide. We definitely discovered some hidden gems that we would have never found on our own. All of the tastings were delicious, but the sandwiches at Monica’s really stood out.

A Best of Boston Sandwich winner! If we only had a dollar for every time that a guest raved about Monica's award-winning Italian sub, we'd be rich!!! There's simply no Italian sub like it of which we're aware. Hence, the long lines for hours on end. Thank you for sharing your tour experience with future guests, and for your generous 5-star rating. We're thrilled that you enjoyed our popular North End Neighborhood Tour, and hope that we'll have a future opportunity to share more of Boston's best eats with you.

Everything about this tour was great. The only bad part was that it was pouring rain on the day we did the tour. Apparently the other couples doing the tour with us were running late. The tour guide asked if we minded waited for them for 10 minutes, we said sure. The tour guy made us wait almost an hour for these people in the pouring rain. On a sunny day I might have been okay with this, but in the rain it was wicked awful. We were soaked. In fairness we probably were going to get soaked anyway. The tour guide was extremely nice, and the tour itself was amazing. The waiting an hour in the rain when we showed up on time, was extremely annoying.

First, thank you for your generous 5-star review despite having been inconvenienced. We're glad that you enjoyed our North End Neighborhood Tour. The circumstances on this day were a bit unusual in that two out of three couples ran behind due to inclement weather while traveling from NY, and due to an unanticipated Uber shortage, respectively. While their estimated arrival time was approximately ten minutes - to which you kindly agreed to wait - their actual arrival after securing parking stretched closer to forty-five minutes, I believe. While we awaited their arrival away from the elements in a storefront doorway, in hindsight, we agree that as a courtesy to you, the tour should have begun at a more reasonable time. We regret that our best efforts to accommodate all of our guests fell short of both your expectations, as well as our own expectations, and will be reaching out to you with a gesture of compensation. 
Great foodie tour!

We had a great time and experienced great food, history and a bit of crime & movie history as well which was really interesting. The owner was our guide and very knowledgeable. Would take this tour again on a future visit!

Wonderful “foodie” tour!
, Jul 2019
Audrey was delightful guide, very personable and knowledgeable about the Boston food scene. Tour included several stops for tastings of “Boston’s best of” each category - pizza, subs, bread, cheese, balsamic vinegar, olive oil - and ended with really special dinner at Lucca ( a “must” when in Boston) including three spectacular pasta dishes and two house specialty breads. Dessert topped all - cannoli! Absolutely worth the cost. Only possible improvement would be guide microphone/earphones system.
