Allan was an exceptional, knowledgae and friendly guide. As Canadians, we learned so much about Boston while enjoying restaurants and bakeries that have been passed down through generations. It was perfectly paced and we highly recommend this tour!


Allen was GREAT!! He was knowledgeable- giving us historical and local information. While the north-end has many fabulous eateries, he took us to “gems” those of us unfamiliar with the area would likely miss. His style and friendliness made it an afternoon spent with a friend vs. a tour guide.


Beautiful weather. So much incredible history. Allen was fantastic. I have been to Boston before highly recommend this tour.


Allison is awesome! The food was great - particularly loved the Bricco bakery, which was tucked back in an alley. We learned a lot about Boston and had an amazing time!


Allison Balmforth did a fantastic job as our tour guide today. She informative, fun and made our tour a true delight! She made sure to make everyone feel included. The food was delicious and the tour included history and fun facts.


Allison was fantastic!! She took us to so many great local places and had all kinds of interesting stories about Boston. She is such a genuine and fun person that loves her city. Highly recommend!!


Allison was amazing! She knows her history and the BEST places in North End to eat! Our tour was very laid back and not rushed at all. Allison took her time and answered any and all questions! She has all the information!


Allison guided me and others 4 very nice ladies around Boston and it was really a great experience I would definitely recommend!


This was our first food tour. Allison was a great guide. She took us off the beaten path to show us some great places! Certainly A LOT of food!!! We did a family trip and all of us enjoyed the tour as well as the food! Loved how she gave some city info as we walked through the North End. Would definitely recommend! Also appreciated her giving us some other travel tips as we continued our trip outside of Boston. Thanks again!


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.
