    Our guide/driver, Johnny Boston, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Made the tour enjoyable. Loved being able to hop off to visit sites then hop back on to move to another city location.

    What a great time! Not only do you go to 4 pubs, but you learn a little obscure history about our founding fathers and Boston.

    Liz did a great job leading us on the tour. She has an upbeat attitude and was attentive to each one of our palettes relative to beer. This was my wife’s first time on this tour and my second with the company and we would definitely consider going on the tour again when we go to another city featuring this company.

    It was a nice atmosphere, great learning experience and the food was delicious. Giana was extremely helpful and patient with us. We will definitely do it again next time we visit to Boston.

    Audrey was, hands down, the best tour guide as she grew up in the area and knows the locals. Her stories of the North End were insightful and she has a wry sense of humor to make it all the more enjoyable. Great food stops and was so full, I couldn't even eat the clam chowder at the end, but my husband declared the corn bread the best he'd ever eaten. There was another tour leaving from the same spot with far more people, but believe we had the more intimate experience. Thanks so much for a wonderful tour!

    The staff were friendly and helpful and we had an enjoyable time. The buffet was good and the DJ played my kind of music. My only complaint is the cost of drink. I ordered a glass of "house chardonnay" and was charged $15, which with the tip brought it up to $18. This is the most I've ever paid for a glass of wine and think it's excessive. My friends' drinks, gin and tonic and Bacardi and coke, were only $10 each plus tip, which is average, however, if you plan on ordering a gloss of wine, you may want to check the price first!

    Paula is knowledgeable, funny and a wonderful storyteller! She will ensure you are well fed while fascinating you with North End history, and current details. She will walk and guide you through the neighborhood streets and make stops at unique neighborhood shops. She will educate you on olive oils and feed you the most DELICIOUS food (and wine) . Easily one the best food tours and a highlight of our Boston trip!

    My boyfriend got us these tickets for my birthday and we had the best time! Not only was the price beyond reasonable the food was amazing! We commend you for being normal and letting people board and enjoy life things without violating privacy and required Covid Vaccine cards and having masks recommended! We both highly recommend this cruise and we can not wait to show and share the experience with family and friends, thank you!!!

    My friend & I already had plans to stay in Boston & see a Fenway concert. Unfortunately, this was postponed for the 2nd year, so we researched shows, concerts and other events. We decided to do the Harbor cruise (which I've done a couple times in past years) but 1st time for my friend.

    We purchased the tickets online to the tune of about $200 or so apiece not paying extra for windows seats, which we automatically got upgraded to anyways. We were staying 3 miles away from Copley Square Marriott & took an Uber, but easily walked back after. We got to the Wharf and there were a couple of really long lines, thankfully they weren't for our cruise. Boarding was at 7 with departure around 8. and we got back approximately 11 pm. We were some of 1st people in line & people came on at different times over the next hour. We were boarded into main cabin and shown to a nice window seat. Our server (name begins with an 'N' sorry) was very pleasant.

    We decided to order a bottle of Chardonnay (around $44) which we enjoyed and was more economical then individual glasses. The wine was poured quickly but the cooler had to be brought over by another server we asked. The crowd in our cabin was I'd say about 50% capacity which was nice. Some of the other cruises were jammed with peope. It made for a much more enjoyable experience. I guess there were a couple wedding parties downstairs but they were served separately.

    There was a beef, fish, chicken & veggie entree choice. There was bread & butter and also either watermelon feta greens salad or seafood chowder. My friend & I ordered 1 of each & it was good. We both ordered the salmon over rice, with a tomato glaze and veggies. That was also tasty. For dessert you could choose berries cake or cheesecake with blueberry compote. The 1 thing I will point out is there was a blueberry smear and no other fruit on cheesecake, it was tasty though.

    Our dinners came out fairly quickly but they served dessert towards end of cruise. There was a gentlemen playing piano music from various eras and that was enjoyable, allowing people to still talk. Unfortunately, it had been a hazy day so there was no sunset but you could still see some of the harbor's lights and the temperature was comfortable. At 1 point you could see professional fireworks going off, once it cleared up a bit more. We spent a good amount of time on upper 2 decks, again just chiiling out. There was a light breeze but absolutely no rocking of the boat (and I'm a sailor). The boat motion is slow paced.

    We enjoyed the cruise, staff, & food. The price was a bit steep especially for a family.

    I did the Sweet and Savory South End tour and Laurel was the guide. She was a fabulous guide and took the time to connect with all the guests, while staying focused on the details of the food and restaurateurs. As well as providing a really rich context for the South End – both in the older history of Boston and how it has evolved to what it is today. We definitely took time to admire and learn about the beautiful architecture that is so prevalent in the area.

    The tour has bite sized portions (or slightly larger), so do not expect to get totally full. All the selections were delicious and quality.

    And being gluten free, I was offered some quality alternatives – like a beautiful meringue instead of a flour pastry. So I don’t feel like I missed out on anything.
    The food was excellent, the South End is very interesting, and most importantly, Laurel really brought the experience together by being such an attentive and enthusiastic guide.
