Excellent tour and Cady was a superb tour guide Tour was informative, well paced and the food suggestions were spot on Highly recommend this tour


Tony was great! He was very knowledgeable, took us to great spots and answered all our questions. We would recommend using this tour and Tony for a thorough and enjoyable tour.


During our first visit to Boston, we managed to do a lot in our three-day stay in this gorgeous city. However, the highlight without question was the two-hour North End "Little Italy" walking tour led by our guide, Tony. His captivating and knowledgeable insights into Boston's history and local food scene was amazing. Tony took us to fantastic locations, entertained us with fascinating history, and his rendition of the opening lines to the Beastie Boys' Paul Revere by the Paul Revere statue was definitely something I really appreactied and will never forget. This outstanding tour is something I would readily recommend, and my family and I would undoubtedly sign up for it again.


Lots of fun eating our way through Little Italy! Cady was a great tour guide with lots of fun stories and information. Would recommend this to anyone.


We had a great time! The guide is very knowledgeable and showed us some places we wouldn't have found on our own. This side of town is so much fun and lots of history too. It is a nice mix of history and food! We enjoyed it!


Experiencing the bakery and pizza shops, the Paul Revere and North Church history, and the candid Boston molasses disaster.


We had a great time eating our way through Little Italy. Cady was very informative and gave great recommendations. She didn't make us feel rushed at all. She took great care of us as a group. We had a great time!


Candy was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality! I would decide this tour again. Modern bakery was our favorite!


We had a great time visiting Boston's North end with Cady! She was fun and knowledgeable. Thanks Cady!! Only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that group was too big (25 people) so this made for long line-ups at the restaurants we visited. Cash-only option was also annoying, but that is not the tour's fault. Suggestion: make arrangements for bite-sized tastings included in the price of the tour and then we can choose to go buy the full portions of things we liked.


We had a great time on our walking food tour (as well as the historical pub crawl the night before) with Cady as our guide. The combination of fascinating history, beautiful streets and sites, entertaining stories, and delicious food and drink made it a highlight of our time in Boston!
