Judy was very informative and sweet. Loved all of the restaurant/bar options to try out Boston’s food culture.


Judy, our guide, was excellent!! She had such a passion and was excited to share her love of Boston and its iconic food. We had such a great time and learned so much along the way.


Judy was the perfect tour guide. We loved learning some Boston food history and trying the yummy foods. In our group the clam chowder was the winner. Very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.


A great tour guide Alissa. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Good good and good portions for a tasting.


This was a terrific tour. The food was delicious and the history of each dish gave us a unique insight into Boston history. Our tour guide -- Alyssa (sp?) -- was knowledgeable and every stop was fun. By the way, the food was ample and we were actually unexpectedly full at the end of the tour. We highly recommend this well-organized and informative tour.


Great way to start out our weekend in Boston! The tour introduced us to the downtown area (& some of its food-related history) & to some of the classic foods of the area. Who knew that baked beans & brown bread (bread originally from a can) could be so tasty! & the delicious clam chowder & lobster roll hit the spot. We finished the tour with Boston cream pie at Omni Parker House, which was the best Boston cream pie I've ever had.


The food stop were very good and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Boston food history. It was an enjoyable experience through the area


My husband and I are from New York. We both really enjoyed this food tour. Gave us the background of 4 classic Boston dishes, beans, chowder, lobster rolls and Boston cream pie. Boston beers were also available. Alissa was a great tour guide, very informative and friendly. Great way to start your time in Boston


Great guide, knew a lot of Boston history and was very professional. Was a great tour! Visited four locations and was given history on each location plus some off beaten path stories. Really worth the time and cost.


Great host...great food choice of four Boston classics !! I would highly recommend this tour !! One of the best !!
