What a fantastic experience we had yesterday with the wonderful Audrey. It definitely was worth every penny visiting special places with History and wonderful food tastings. I don’t know how people say they don’t get much to eat we had had no breakfast but still had to carry out our cannoli as we were so full we couldn’t manage it. The market traders were all polite and were eager to share their knowledge as was Audrey who kept us amused with her stories about the area we were in and the people . Best tour yet in Boston. Thank you Audrey and also the lovely Canadians Ron and Sue who were great company.

This tour was wonderful! Everything we sampled was so delicious and we even learned some history of the area as well during it. My only regret was not doing it earlier in my trip so I could take advantage of all the wonderful food we learned about. We will definitely tour with them again on our next visit!

Our tour guide Audrey was amazing! She provided rich descriptions of each food we sampled which made each stop special in its own way. This was our first foodie tour and we are already booking our next one!

What You'll Get

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: North End, Boston, MA 02109

This walking tour begins INSIDE of the street-level lobby of 296 State Street, which is also known as the Boston Marriott Long Wharf. Our group will convene at the foot of the escalator. The tour starts at 10:00 a.m., with the exception of Saturdays, when it begins at 9:30 a.m.

On Fridays and Saturdays only, our tour route will bring us through the 200+-year-old Haymarket Market, where we'll enjoy meet-and-greets with a few vendors, and, depending upon availability, will sample exotic fruits. Next up, the Boston Public Market, which houses thirty-five local food vendors. Here, we'll enjoy a regional doughnut (okay, maybe two!), infused maple syrups, one of Boston's best lobster rolls, and flavored roasted nuts. Iconic chowder/lunch follows at a historical restaurant that Forbes has recognized as one of the world's Ten Classics. After lunch, we'll visit the North End/Little Italy, where we'll experience two hidden gems: a three-time Best of Boston Bread Bakery, and a salumeria that was featured in 2018 on the Travel Channel's Zimmern's List, AND the Food Network's "Beat Thing That I Ever Ate". Our final stop: A well-known bakery (institution, really) whose cannoli appears on Thrillist's top 50 must eats in Boston. You didn't think we'd let you leave us without one, did you?
