Audrey made the experience the best. She was informative in a humorous way. She knew how to draw out people in the group so it was inclusive. The food experiences were excellent. I have lived in the area for more than 40 years; have visited the North End many times and still learned. Truly a wonderful day

Our guide Audrey was wonderful! She's very knowledgeable in local history and gun facts. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. We had an amazing time touring the North End!

Oh, boy, we may have told one too many mob stories! Pretty sure that you meant "FUN" facts. No "gun" facts on this tour! We couldn't be more appreciative of your thoughtful review, which gave us a bit of a chuckle. We're pleased that you and your husband enjoyed our North End Neighborhood Tour, and all of the award-winning tastings, and hope that you'll consider joining us again if your future travels bring you to Boston.

Audrey is a wonderful and unbelievably knowledgeable tour guide. She is animated and delightful. You'll walk away from this tour with a real flavor (literally and figuratively) of what the North End of Boston was like both then and now.

It was a pleasure to host you and your lovely wife. We're thrilled that you enjoyed our North End tour, including the neighborhood's rich history. We're very appreciative of your kind words, which we'll try to live up to as we continue to chase excellence, and to exceed our guests' expectations.

All of the food you try on this tour is OUTSTANDING! The guides are super nice and extremely knowledgeable about the food and neighborhood! Definitely well worth the money for everything you get along with the great stories! A priceless tour! You will get full! Plenty of food!!! I can’t even pick a favorite option because everything we tried was AMAZING!

Well, we think that you're pretty OUTSTANDING and AMAZING, too! What a pleasure it was for Leah, a then-trainee, and I to host you on our North End Neighborhood Tour. We're thrilled that you enjoyed our Little Italy's iconic and award-winning best eats. While we hope that the remainder of your family enjoyed the Sox game as well, we're glad that you opted instead to spend nine innings with us creating lasting food memories. Should you plan a return trip, we'd welcome another opportunity to share Boston's best eats with you. And if you know of others who would enjoy our tours, send them our way. We promise to send them home happy and full, too!

This tour was fantastic! The food, the history, the stories that Audrey threw in…we had a blast. Highly recommended!

Thank you for so highly recommending our North End Neighborhood Tour. We were thrilled to be able to reintroduce you to the North End, and to share its best eats, including your favorite, Monica Mercato's Best of Boston-winning Italian sub. We hope that we inspired you to return to the North End more often, and to create additional food memories on your own.

Audrey’s perspective on this neighborhood & insight to some of its residents is really fun. It’s a great way to enjoy some of Boston & get great recommendations for places to eat or shop.

It was wonderful to see you again, and to host more of your loved ones. We're thrilled that you enjoyed our North End Neighborhood Tour, including the senior residents who reside off-the-beaten path, and with whom we have nurtured and developed relationships. Should you return a third time, we promise to have more best eats a-waiting, and a few less parking wars between bites!

This was the best food tour that my family has ever taken and we have done more than 10. Great combination of food, history, with a little crime mixed in. Our tour was led by Audrey, who was magnificent!

Sometimes reviews leave us a little verklempted! We're thrilled that we not only met your expectations, but also surpassed them. Thank for joining us, and for such thoughtful feedback, which we'll continue to strive to live up to. We hope that we'll have another opportunity to share Boston's best eats with you in the future.

Audrey was a wonderful guide. We definitely discovered some hidden gems that we would have never found on our own. All of the tastings were delicious, but the sandwiches at Monica’s really stood out.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
A Best of Boston Sandwich winner! If we only had a dollar for every time that a guest raved about Monica's award-winning Italian sub, we'd be rich!!! There's simply no Italian sub like it of which we're aware. Hence, the long lines for hours on end. Thank you for sharing your tour experience with future guests, and for your generous 5-star rating. We're thrilled that you enjoyed our popular North End Neighborhood Tour, and hope that we'll have a future opportunity to share more of Boston's best eats with you.
