Laurel was a great guide for our Bites of Boston South End walking food tour. Knowledgeable, well-spoken and entertaining, she combined the history of the South End with interesting background information on the 6 restaurants/offerings and their owners. Highly recommend.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
