Could not recommend this tour more. VERY informative and we had such a wonderful time! We went on a colder day and ended up with just one other couple in our group. It felt like our own personal tour of the North End. Thank you so much!

The history of the North End, the authentic shops we went into, and the background of some of the traditions gave us a delightful look into this area of Boston. There were only 4 of us on the tour. Our tour guide engaged all of us in her presentation. We loved being introduced to some of the owners of the different shops. Monica's was a great stop and the owner was very enthusiastic and engaging. We loved all the stops along the way. The guides first hand knowledge of the area added an authenticity to our tour. GreatTime!

It was a cold, windy afternoon and Jackie treated myself and colleague to a walking tour that warmed the heart and captivated the mind! The warmth of the bread and vigor of the walking made it the experience of a lifetime! It is clear that passion for food and teaching is what this is all about. I would recommend without hesitation: professional, timely, kind, informative, memorable...what else could a person ask for. Superb!

This was a gift that I had purchased for my family for xmas. I knew it would be something we could experience together and served as a way for us to lock in a plan for a full day with quality time--interruption free :) we loved everything about it--how interactive the host was as well as how informative the tour was. We fell in love with some of our stops and products we were introduced to. I had reserved a table at Vinoteca Di Monica and it was EXCELLENT--clean plate club all around. We left Boston with a full belly, desserts to go (from Maria's) and some fruit and veggies from the farmers market across the street. Perfect outing for adult groups, family and/or friends. Highly recommend it :)
