If you’re looking for a tasty bite in Boston, then the North End is definitely the first place you should visit! Our expert guide will lead you through this trendy neighborhood and help you discover the best bakeries, bistros, and cafes so you can make the best reservations in town!

Delicious options for tastings on this tour may include freshly baked artisanal bread, zesty pizza, and comforting cappuccinos.

You may even get the chance to step inside the historic walls of The Old North Church. Finally, we’ll head back to the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a picturesque park where you’ll see the unique memorials, fountains, parks, and art exhibits, and where your tour will come to its end.

Community Impact

We mindfully design our tours to explore areas on foot, thus doing our part to lessen our environmental impact.

Our guides prioritize “supporting local” through recommending and patronizing family-run and locally owned businesses so that the culture and traditions of this neighborhood are preserved and are passed on to the next generation.

We are committed to a 360-degree view of storytelling, featuring stories about under-represented groups such as women, immigrants, and people of various ethnicities, ages, and religions.

When possible, our tours feature products from nearby and highlight the importance of locally sourced ingredients.

Highlights

Greenway Carousel

With its unique hand-carved characters inspired by the city’s history and culture, the carousel offers a delightful experience for visitors of all ages, adding a touch of enchantment to the vibrant urban park

Faneuil Hall and Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Your first stop on the foodie half of your tour is at Faneuil Hall and its Marketplace. This destination is a lively market and town hall and is located close to the waterfront. This is where the cries for revolution from Great Britain first rang out.

Rose Kennedy Greenway

Your tour will pass this picturesque park and you’ll see the unique memorials, fountains, parks, and art exhibits that reside here, along with skyline views. This will be where your tour eventually concludes.

North End

Your guide will introduce you to the vast choice of different drinks and bites and you’ll get to experience them yourself! From breads to cheeses to pizza, it’s got it all – so arrive hungry! As you’re munching, our guide will teach you all about the history of the North End – one of Boston’s most iconic and popular neighborhoods.

Paul Revere Mall

Enjoy a stroll down this tree-lined promenade and snap a picture of the man himself atop his horse, as your guide tells the immortalized tale of Paul and his Midnight Ride.

Old North Church

Along the tour, you’ll get a view of the steeple of the Old North Church from a distance (one of Boston’s Must See spots). We’d highly recommend a visit after your tour – it’s where lanterns were hung on the eve of the American Revolution.

**The Old North Church is closed until the beginning of April. During this time, we will not be able to visit inside the church, but we will stop outside of it or visit an alternate location.**
