The tour guide Flash was great. His authentic stories and knowledge of the history of the North End was very assuring. My wife and I have been on tours where the tour guide is stating facts that seem to be right out of a book....More

We have been to Boston several times and we were looking for something different to do. This was certainly different. Anthony met us at the library in the North End. He reminded me a little of Rodney Dangerfield. He grew up in the area and...More

awesome tour with a fabulous history lesson from a very knowledgable albeit slightly opinionated local had a great time and it's definitely not a 3 hour tour so flexibility is key

This was a very original tour that gave one a look into Little Italy’s past as well as current lesser known restaurants of the area. We were stuffed! We also even had to return to the bread bakery before departing Boston as I could not...More

I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the tour . I try to make everyone happy but it’s common sense that not everyone likes the same thing . I’m glad that most people who have taken the tour have a different view of it. The politically incorrect...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

There is a side street parking lot just by where you will end the tour at Mommas House. It cost me $20.00 for the day. I just googled parking when I got to the library area (where the tour begins) and it came right up. It... More

Agree with Sandy - leisurely walk with stops at various eating places where you can sit.
