You cannot go to Boston' s North End without doing this tour. This is the second time I was on this tour and would go again. Our tour guide has so much knowledge of the history of the North End. The food tasting was just wonderful. She gave us such great ideas about cooking Italian food. And was so informative about the history of the different foods we tasted. It will be the best 3 hours you spend in Boston!!,
