Tours meet at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily at the Boxer's Statue at the corner of Hanover and Cross. Kids 5 and younger can tag along for free, though they will not receive any samples.
Boston Pizza Tours
In Boston, more than 50 pizzerias line the cobblestone streets of Little Italy alone. The guides of Boston Pizza Tours navigate this vast selection with ease, leading up to 16 participants to three top pizzerias for sample slices. Such hotspots include a Little Italy brick-oven joint dating back to 1888, as well as a family-run Boston bakery that's sold slices in the North End since 1903.
During the rest of the walking tours, which cover 1–1.5 miles in about two hours, groups not only learn about pizza's history, but also Boston's. Each voyage includes five Freedom Trail stops, from visits inside a 1680 home where Paul Revere once lived to ferry rides leading to a tavern visited by George Washington. Once tours conclude, guests receive a pizza-related keepsake, such as a pocket-sized brick oven for pizza-bagel emergencies.
