Enjoyed the tour and the pizza. Great day! Easy to schedule. Walking was good exercise with all the carbs.

Walk, Learn, Eat ....and repeat! As we like to say - "at the end of your #NorthEndPizzaTour, there's nothing left but the flavor and fond memories!" - okay, maybe there's a few calories left, but it's way worth it. Thanks, Cruiser!

We really enjoyed the pizza selections that were made and that they were able to bring us around to historical sites while also focusing on the many food stops in North End. We definitely know where we will be eating for the rest of the trip!

A walking Food Tour is a wonderful way to explore a new neighborhood. See the sights, and grab some bites! Thanks for the review, Molly!

Just ok

Our tour guide was just ok, he didn't talk loud enough for everyone to hear. So you missed alot of info. Plus all the sudden he would just start walking and we thought, oh, I guess we're leaving. I didn't like the fact that the one pizza place didn't even have a place for us to sit, so we sat in the park to eat it. It was only 50 out, so not really picnic weather

Thank you for the constructive criticism, Teresa. We'll have our Tour Guides speak more loudly. We do from time to time, enjoy a slice "al fresco" in a beautiful North End park.

North End Pizza Tour

The tour stops and material were not very interesting or impressive. Our tour guide was not very passionate or knowledgeable on American history. He gave a canned presentation and did not know answers to our questions. The food element was not worth it either. Overall, it was disappointing and not worth $44/person.
icon Response from Host , May 2020
We are sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your experience. Learning historical info about 5 different Freedom Trail sites, admission to Old North Church & Chocolate Making demo, plus 3 different Pizza slices certainly isn't for everyone.
