  • Explore Boston’s charming North End on this food walking tour
  • Sample an array of classic New England and Italian-American dishes
  • Learn about Little Italy’s food and history from your guide
  • Enjoy an intimate, small-group Boston outing that is also family-friendly 
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a central location in the North End, Boston’s historic Little Italy. Then, stroll with a small group of fewer than 12 people along the narrow streets of this charming city sampling its classic dishes. Kick things off with a lobster roll, a quintessential New England dish. From there, taste roasted nuts from a traditional shop, eat a sandwich with a recipe created in the country’s oldest public square, and visit a hole-in-the-wall pizzeria. Along the way, your guide shares interesting facts about where you stop and the foods you eat. You might, for example, savor a pizza slice while looking out upon the colonial church that was used to warn pilgrims of a British sea invasion during the American Revolution. Before your tour ends, stop in a public market to taste specialty sausage and sip a locally brewed craft beer or hard cider.

This tour is not to be missed whether you’re a local or visiting from out of town. There was a variety of items and a great overview of the history of Boston. The knowledge Jason had of the food, restaurants, and history was next to none. Our group of 8 will be raving about

Good food and informative tour guide. Thatcher was a great tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. We especially enjoyed the lobster roll, the cannoli and the ravioli. If future suggestion for the tour would be to stay in the north end and not go to the marketplace. Thank you!
