Your Itinerary

Boston Public Market

We'll start off this true local market where Bostonians actually do their shopping, with vendors selling local produce, fish, gourmet treats & more. Inside the market we will visit two local market vendors to try a variety of delicious products local to Boston and Massachusetts, such delicious apple butters, apple cider donut, and a unique Boston classic that dates back to the 17th century and is a nod to Boston's colonial past.

Quincy Market

An historic 19th-century market where we will stop in to try one of Boston’s famous pastries, the Boston Cream Pie, as your guide reveals the history of this cake which dates back to the late 1880s.

Freedom Trail

We'll then take a walk through downtown Boston, and being one of the oldest cities in America it's hard there's many historic sites with a story to tell, so we'll stop by some of the landmarks that make up the historic 'Freedom Trail' - 16 historic landmarks where Boston’s history unfolded, in particular events related to America's fight for independence.

Union Oyster House

This historic restaurant has been serving clam chowder & other New England seafood classics since 1826. We'll stop in here for their famous clam chowder, Boston baked beans, and of course, oysters!


A true, family run local eatery where we will stop in to try their specialty, a true Boston classic - hot and buttery lobster roll.

North End

We'll head over to explore the quaint North End neighborhood where the Italian influence in this area lies in plain sight.

Old North Church & Historic Site

Another landmark on the historic Freedom Trail, we will pass by here - as well as other historically important monuments, before finishing up with dessert!

Modern Pastry

Step into this truly authentic Italian pastry store and travel in time back to the 1930s. Still run by the same family who opened it back in the day, this is the perfect place to finish on a sweet note by sampling an Italian classic, ricotta-filled cannoli.

Great tour provided by Carol, who was knowledgeable, amusing and friendly. Would have liked a whole lobster roll to myself though!


Fun tour guide CC. Interesting and good food. Educational and a great introduction to the area. Great people on our tour


Excellent tour with knowledgeable tour guide. The food was spot on! Even though it was a "tasting," we were quite full and very satisfied.


It was a wet day in Boston but the company of the other guests and Sam the guide made the food tour a very enjoyable morning. We had several food stops, the Union Oyster Bar was especially good with Clam Chowder and crab cakes which were delicious, we were able to walk round the very old historic building. Sam gave excellent commentary on much of Boston’s history as we toured the Freedom Trail and North End.


Great tour, food was amazing and the tour guide provided a lot of history and additional food suggestions.


This was a great tour to combine historical information and get a taste of Boston. The guide worked with my dietary restrictions really well so that I could still eat as much as possible. I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to try local Boston favorites. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable of local areas and things not taught in school about the freedom trail and historical figures.


Great guide, great food, great locations! This food tour was the perfect combination of seeing key historical sites in unique neighborhoods and good local food spots. The history and stories added to the experience greatly and Sam did a fantastic job of making you feel you were getting an insider’s tour while sharing the broader history of the area. Thanks!


Tour guide Julie was great, she made sure everyone in the group was included. And the restaurants on the tour were really good.


Sam was a great guide! Very knowledgeable, and a good storyteller too. Food offerings were exceptional as well. Made walking around in the rain a genuinely pleasant experience


Sam was an outstanding tour guide. Great knowledge and information and excellent presentation; combined with perfectly curated food choices to highlight and compliment Boston’s culture and history. Popovers, doughnuts, clam chowder, crab cakes , clams, Lobster Roll and cannoli; quintessential Boston Fare. We Highly recommend this tour.
