We had a good time. The tour was interesting from the historical aspect and stopping for pizza, which were all good, made for an enjoyable time. we've been to Boston on several occasions, but never really been around the North End. In the future we'll check out more of the restaurants in that area. Our guide, Dave, was knowledgeable, humorous, and was thrilled to find out we are from Buffalo, NY as he is originally from this area. So prior to and during the tour we talked about many aspects of Western New York. I think he got a bigger kick out of the tour then we did. In all I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This is a must do. I’m going to be honest, we tried to cancel this tour, because it is so ding-dang hot outside. But, we missed the deadline so we rallied and rolled out. So glad we did. This was a great mix of history and incredible pizza. Three wildly different slices and the best cannoli I’ve ever had. Our guide was amazing, efficient, funny, incredibly knowledgeable and patient. Our 6 year old was able to comfortably keep up and had fun, though he was too full to eat his 3rd slice or cannoli. My only suggestion would be to raise the age for kids to come along for free!

This tour was a great blend of local history and pizza tasting. Our tour guide Margot has a wealth of information on Boston’s North End. We were impressed that Margot turned up in the rain with a sunny attitude and that really made the tour. The choice of pizza was superb. I’m never eating frozen boxed pizza again!
