Scotty was our tour guide. He did a great job. It was fun eating pizza and learning all kinds of history. The pizza was delicious. Three slices and a cannoli is the perfect amount to eat. I left stuffed. The walk around the North End was great. Would highly recommend the tour.

Informative tour around the north end which leaves nobody hungry

Had a lot of fun although it was a very cold day for that tour! Guide was very friendly and knew so much about the history of Boston and the north end! The stops at the pizzerias were not too short but also not too long, just perfect to get to know the group a bit better and have some chats! Definitely recommended to do it at the beginning of your stay in Boston, Ernesto's Pizza was clearly my favorite!

Despite it being cold, our guide was funny and enthusiastic. Pizza covered a range of styles, and it was all yummy. The cannolis were a nice touch at the end. The tour hits places also on the Freedom Trail, so it was nice to get some additional info about those sites if you didn’t do a guided trail tour.

Our tour guide was amazing! Depth knowledge of the history, he made it entertaining, the pizza was ready and prompt. Pizza and cannoli was delicious! The end of the tour was awesome. It ended at a bar under Modern Pastry. He had reserved tables for us. Perfect way to end the tour! Highly recommend it! It was worth it!

We really enjoyed our tour -- Nice balance of history, fun anecdotes, and food! I had my two kids (15 and 12), and they were both engaged throughout, although I do know they really enjoyed the pizza component, a first for us on a tour. Thanks!
