Jackie was very knowledgeable and fun to be with; my group of six ranged in age from 24 y o to 64 y o. Each one of us enjoyed the tour and its' many different aspects. The shop owners were very busy but, made time for us & delighted us with lovely "tidbits" which whetted our appetites. Concensus is we would do it again & probably try a different one as well!

Our group enjoyed our tour immensely. Even went back to a few of the places we went to purchase some of things we sampled. Our guide Jackie was extremely informative of foods, spices and the history of the North End. Would recommend the tour to everyone.

Michele was terrific, she clearly is from "the hood" and knows her way around the best of the North End. We plan I taking her other tours.

Wonderful North End Walking Tour
Wed, Sep 10  2:00 PM DaveSutter Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Being of Italian heritage ourselves, my husband & I wanted to experience Boston's North End neighborhood and all it has to offer. Walking through the narrow streets is the only way to experience the ambience of the neighborhood. Our tour director was knowledgable, bringing us to some of the authentic salumeria's (deli's), bakeries and misc. shops in the neighborhood. The tour is 3 hours which I thought would be a bit long but was just the right amount of time. I would recommend this tour to all who love Italian food, culture & all who would love to experience this neighborhood.

My sister was visiting from WA state and I thought this tour sounded like a fun day. We both loved all the information our guide Susie provided. The shops we visited were fun and we felt like we know the North End so much better now! Great day!

Very informative

Our guide was very knowledgeable of Chinatown and Chinese culture which was a big plus. He also could speak Chinese. He gave us a history of Chinatown and told us about the Chinese culture and beliefs. The first place we visited was the Great Barbecue which was interesting seeing chickens being barbecued with their heads attached. We were given samples of pork strips which were very tasty. Then we went to Ho Yuen Pastry and saw a beautiful selection of Asian pastries. We were given samples of the delicious pastries. From there we went to a Chinese herbal medicine pharmacy and spice shop with medicinal herbs. That was so interesting to see the Chinese herbalist who will assess your physical condition and prescribe a cure. Then we saw the pharmacist out front weigh out the various ingredients for the patient to take home and brew into your tea or soup. After that we went to an Asian market and Jim Becker who was our guide showed us different asian vegetables and told us how to prepare and cook them. We went to a bakery and cafe and had bubble tea which was very different. We ended our tour with a Dim Sum lunch which was included in the tour. It was my first time having Dim Sum. Jim would select different items on the carts for us to taste. Some food I liked more than others but the tea was delicious. All in all I would highly recommend this tour.

Beth was an interesting and well informed guide. Even though we have been to the North End many many times we learned quite a bit of history of the neighborhood. All the stops and tastings were great. Enjoyed every minute of it. The three hours went by quickly.

The Market Tour of the North End was an eye opening experience. We learned so much about what authentic Italian food should taste like and how it should be served. Our tour guide (Rebecca) was very knowledgeable, both about Italian cuisine and about the North End. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys eating.
