    Very Disappointing
    Lisa_G
    , Jun 2022
    We have been on a lot of great food tours through our travels and I’m sad to say that this was the wors that we’ve ever experienced. The tour guide did not provide much information about the restaurants and was not engaging. The food was mediocre at best. I think the lobster roll (pictured) was replaced with lukewarm clam chowder and dry cornbread. Pizza was not tasty and again lukewarm. Take the money that you’d spend on this tour and buy a nice meal at one of the many fantastic restaurants of the North End..you’ll be much happier.

    Our guide Liam was very energetic and engaging. He took time to get to know each of us on the tour. (8 total) He engaged with each group and answered all our side questions as well as filling us with insightful information about the history of Boston's North end. Each stop on the tour served excellent food from roasted nuts in the Boston Market to lobster ravioli, pizza, deli sandwiches and a cannoli from Modern pastry to end the tour. The pace was perfect and the food was filling.

    Liam was amazing the entire tour. He took us to all the best spots on the North End, and gave us a top tier history lesson on each spot. We also learned a lot about Boston and a lot of other random facts that kept the tour entertaining. The food was GREAT, the scenery and architecture was AWESOME, and I definitely would come back!!

    I traveled to Boston for a conference and my boyfriend joined me as neither of us had been. We arrived a day early to see the city and could not have picked a better way to see the city and sample all the amazing food that it has to offer. Fantastic time, tour guide was knowledgeable and fun, food was amazing.

    Great food along with a historic tour of Boston. Liam was a fantastic tour guide, and hooked us up with the best plates from some of the best, most iconic food scenes in Boston. In between the food stops your group makes, Liam took us to historic sites and landmarks, sharing into the stories behind them. Highly recommend over any other tour, because its intimate, fun, and learning on a happy stomach is so good. 😊

    Brandon was great! This was an easy walking tour with lots of great food. We try to take a foodie tour in each city we visit, and this was one of the best. The clam chowder and cannoli were the best items.

    This tour was excellent. The food was excellent. If you want to try the food, but are not able to walk for hours this tour is for you. I also like to be told alittle of the dark side of history. Things you want read in the normal history books. Our tour guide was able to tell us alittle bout the dark side of history. Which I loved. She did a great job.

    Careful - some tour guides are not well trained!

    , Sep 2021
    I picked this tour because of the great reviews; however, we got a guide who had only ever given 1 tour before. He was 10 minutes late to meet the group (with no communication sent), looked disheveled, and was clearly inexperienced with leading a group. It was hard to hear most of the information and the flow was very odd--guide did not have good mastery of how to lead a group or stay on time. There was a LOT of food included--we were stuffed by the end. You can tell the intention is to give history + food, but the experience will vary greatly between different guides. Clearly they do not give much training before letting people be a guide.

    Knowledgeable guide plus a trainee to make sure we all stayed together. Food was excellent, especially the cannoli and the pastrami sandwich.
