We had a really amazing time on this food tour! We dove deep into the history of Boston and all the great food surrounding it. Our tour guide Nabil did an outstanding job explaining and showing us around the city. He knew all the great spots and all the fun activities there was to do in Boston. Couldn’t ask for a better day!

Nabil gave us a great tour with a mix of Boston history old and more recent and still me humor woven throughout. The food tastings were delicious. Good portions and a range of items.

Nabil was fantastic! He is so knowledgeable about the area and made it so much fun. He is friendly and personable, the best personality for a tour guide. Can’t recommend him enough! And all of the seafood was excellent.

Delicious tour, nabil guided us through the heart of american seafood and shared all the great history that ties it to Boston. My entire family loved it (even my daughter who usually doesn't like seafood)

carinet292

I’ve done alot of food tours, but this was the best i ever did. Boston’s maritime history, its delicious seafood, and nabil’s passion for his city shone through the whole time. Take this tour, trust me!

We recently took this incredible tour and were not sure what to expect. It's a 5-hour experience that starts with a variety of seafood tastings including the freshest lobster roll I have ever eaten as well as delicious chowda (I'm practicing my Boston accent). But it's so much more than just a seafood tour. The guide talked about the history of the seafood industry in Boston and how it still plays an important part of the local economy. With tummys full, we started the second half of the tour that covered most of the Freedom Trail. Our guide was amazing and not only did he make us feel like old friends, the incredible stories he told felt very genuine. They weren't regurgitated wikipedia stories. This is exactly what we were looking for for our time in Boston.

Nabil was an incredible tour guide! We ate some great food and learned lots of interesting history and stories about Boston Harbor. My teenage boys had the best time as well which says a lot for how engaging Nabil is as a guide.

Nabil was one of the best food tour guides I've ever had. Personable, funny, incredibly well informed, and truly into doing his job. The food stops were great. I like to think of myself as a lobster role expert, and honestly, the lobster roll on this tour was the best I've ever had (James Hook's). In addition to the great food, Nabil provided so much excellent historical information and lots of Boston insider tips. I highly recommend this tour and Nabil!

Very informative and entertaining (and delicious) seafood tour. Guide Nabil was very knowledgeable and personable and paced the tour well to allow ample time to take photos, and answer questions. Food stops were excellent!! I Highly recommend this tour.

Our tour guide, Nabil did a great job! He was knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour had ample and delicious seafood tastings combined with a lot of information about the Seaport neighborhood and the history of Boston. My friend is allergic to lobster and Nabil was extremely accommodating, finding alternative seafood options she could eat. I’m from NJ but one of my friends who lives in Boston learned a lot about her hometown. I highly recommend Nabil and this tour!
