    Fun
    The tour was very informative and our guide did a great job at blending history and food recommendations. She was friendly and welcoming. We went on it with a little one in a stroller. There were 4 food stops (3 bakeries and pizza/gelato) and five or so story/ history stops. The first food stop was not stroller friendly, but they had a cute courtyard we could wait in while the others went down.

    Awesome tour guide, too many people
    The tour guide was awesome. This is no way a reflection of her and Had I just been reviewing her it would be 5 stars. The tour itself was dragged.. we had to many people and we would have to wait for everyone to stand in line order food and wait. If the group was smaller it would of been much much better. But don't waste your time on this. Too many things to do to spend 2 hours visiting under 10 food places.

    An Unforgettable Walking Tour in Boston's Little Italy
    During our first visit to Boston, we managed to do a lot in our three-day stay in this gorgeous city. However, the highlight without question was the two-hour North End "Little Italy" walking tour led by our guide, Tony. His captivating and knowledgeable insights into Boston's history and local food scene was amazing. Tony took us to fantastic locations, entertained us with fascinating history, and his rendition of the opening lines to the Beastie Boys' Paul Revere by the Paul Revere statue was definitely something I really appreactied and will never forget. This outstanding tour is something I would readily recommend, and my family and I would undoubtedly sign up for it again.

    Fun tour!
    We had a great time! The guide is very knowledgeable and showed us some places we wouldn't have found on our own. This side of town is so much fun and lots of history too. It is a nice mix of history and food! We enjoyed it!

    Great tour with Cady!
    We had a great time visiting Boston's North end with Cady! She was fun and knowledgeable. Thanks Cady!! Only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that group was too big (25 people) so this made for long line-ups at the restaurants we visited. Cash-only option was also annoying, but that is not the tour's fault. Suggestion: make arrangements for bite-sized tastings included in the price of the tour and then we can choose to go buy the full portions of things we liked.
