Excellent educational tour

We enjoyed every facet of the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, articulate and delivered succinct useful information in perfect cadence. We learned where to shop, where to dine and what to look for in ingredients. We enjoyed the tastings of foodstuffs and learning the history of the neighborhood. It was so much fun we'd like to do it again.

My husband and I were given this tour of the North End Market Tour of Boston as a wedding gift. It was an amazing experience. Our tour guide Beth was nothing short of phenomenal. She was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and funny! My husband and I are both Italian and we were truly amazed at what we learned. The shops and restaurants we went into and the history of the people who run them were touching and heartfelt, and the samples delicious! For three hours we felt like we were part of the neighborhood, we wish we were! We would have never thought of doing something like this on our own, and we highly recommend it! Hopefully, you will be lucky enough to get Beth as your guide. She is as charismatic and wonderful as the history of the North End!

What a great experience! Jackie was incredibly knowledgeable; well-versed in the history of Chinatown, the populations that had lived there over the years, and - of course - the food! We sampled all sorts of favorites from the various regions of China - from BBQ pork, to a variety of pastries, some delicious bubble tea, a trip to the herbalist/medicine shop, and a wonderful dim sum luncheon. Jackie made the tour very personable - and brought much of her own experience & insight into all that we experienced. We recommend this to anyone!

North end tour was excellent.

This was an excellent tour. The guide was knowledgable and interesting with lots of interesting stories. My grandparents grew up in the North End so it had a lot of relevance for me.

Living just outside of Boston, the North End wasn't a place I frequented often. Maybe a dinner at a known place. The tour opened my eyes to true Italian food. I felt like a kid in a candy shop in many of the stores, planning my next cooking adventure. My husband, not a foodie, but someone who loves to eat - really enjoyed learning more about the history and experiencing the culture of the North End. After the tour we ventured out to buy spices, oils, vinegar and sweet goodies to bring home. I now feel very at home in the North End to go shopping for the best of the best... at prices that are cheaper than at my own grocery store.

Nice entry-level tour

This was a great introduction to the inner workings of the North End. Went to stores where the locals shop and can't wait to go back and "buy like them". I had done this tour about 5 years ago and, with the exception of Polcari's, everywhere else was new. Such a treat.

Our guide, I think her name was Beth, was very interesting and informative. The only change I would suggest is not making the first stop so long, I think it was over an hour. Any make seating more available along the tour. Other than that I have recommended this tour to several people.

Educational and delicious

This tour is educational about the history of the North End, Italian cultural practices related to adapting to a new country, and some finer points about ingredients that make Italian food so good. Our guide, Jim was outstanding in sharing his extensive knowledge, engaging us into conversation and answering all of our questions. There is a lot of time on your feet, walking and talking so be prepared with really comfortable shoes. My group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We plan to return to the North End next year to dine out for dinner, We also plan to attend the Chinatown tour, also offered by this company. We give this 5 stars (out of 5)!

We really enjoyed our tour of the North End. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The 3 hours flew by as we toured the quaint little specialty shops and purveyors in this little gem of Boston. We also learned quite a bit about the history of the North End and the various ethnic groups to live there through its history.
