This is what you want to go on when you’re in Boston - A late summer sunny day was a perfect time to explore the north end, and it’s many amazing eateries. The guide was fascinating, and pointed out the local historical landmarks as we passed them. I had no idea Paul Revere was in such dangerous territory through the revolution. It’s a pleasant walking tour, and you’ll be happy you went on it. Also, not every tour gives you wonderful food.

Fabulous food tour! - We joined Chanta for a wonderful food tour of the North End. My family was visiting from out of the country and I am a native. It was as delightful for me as it was for them, I hadn't been there in such a long time. His wonderful tour has me wanting to go back, and soon. Thanks Chanta!

Our Tour GuIde!!! WOW!!! The amount of food!!! WOW!!! - AhhhMAAAAZING!!! If you are on the fence about this tour… Don’t be!!! I traveled to Boston for the first time with mom, sisters & niece this month and one of the true highlights of our trip this far was this amazing tour! Its’ excellence mostly attributed to Tyler our tour guide. We spent the morning and early afternoon on the hop on hop off bus trolley tour so we knew we had to meet our tour guide at the carousel by 1 so luckily we were able to do all 14 stops with the trolley & the trolley brought us back to the first stop, which was near the carousel. Tyler our tour guide was so courteous, so professional, so knowledgeable & so witty. AKA AHHHHHMAAAAZING!!!!! From the carousel we proceeded to Christopher Columbus Park. Our first food stop was the hidden Bricco Panetteria, on Hanover street, where we ate lemon ricotta-filled sfogliatella. Next we stopped at Cafe Vittoria, where we got drinks and fresh cannoli. This was followed by Salumeria Italiana, where we got Italiano sandwiches. We next ventured to North Square, where we covered the story of Paul Revere, his life and works, and the history of the square. Afterwards, we went to the Paul Revere Mall and saw the statue with the old north church in the background. I gave an overview of Revere’s midnight ride and the Battles of Lexington and Concord before we entered the church and explored. From there we went to Copp’s Hill to read old graves before we got pizza at Regina Pizzeria, then walked through some of the older Italian neighborhoods of the North End to our final stop at the Rose Kennedy Greenway. I’ve been on several food tours, and this was one of the few tours with SOOO MUCH FOOOD!!! I honestly was so full from all of our food tastings that I honestly did not even want dinner! And to add to Tyler’s excellence he was nice enough to take our email addresses and provide us more information on other tours he hosts as well as restaurant recommendations & other sites to visit!! ! Again such a ROCKSTAR!!!!!! Thank you sooo much Tyler

Supreme food, local history narrated by a charm! - Allison was a delight. Great low key energy along with interesting narrative made you feel as though a good friend or family member was showing you the town. The North End food/history tour was absolutely one of my favorite things about my visit to Boston.

Meh food tour - Neighborhood was very interesting, and some food choices terrific. But guide was too free with profanity and loved to hear himself talk a bit too much. We had plenty to eat, but food value was much less than we hoped

Eating in the streets - Learning of a secret bakery in Little Italy was great. However, we suffered in the pouring rain. Never dreamed we would be eating while standing in the street.

Not worth it for what you get - The tour was a little disappointing in how it was structured and what was provided. We scheduled this as a team event to replace our team lunch. The tour began with cannoli's which was disappointing considering it was lunch time and we were anticipating lunch items or something substantial. We felt that the tour lacked a lot of food items considering the price paid.
