Owner description: Bites of Boston Food Tours' Sweet and Savory South End Tour is a walking food and neighborhood tour, providing locals and visitors alike the opportunity to explore and learn about the South End of Boston. The South End is a vibrant culinary and cultural community, but remains an area less traveled by most who visit the city. Our "off the beaten path" experience combines delicious food tastings at 6 local restaurants and eateries with fascinating facts about the neighborhood. Our guests not only learn about the histories of restaurants we visit as well as the respective chef/owners, but additionally, between food tastings, this tour also sheds light on unique historical, cultural and architectural details of the neighborhood. The Sweet and Savory South End Tour is a truly comprehensive sensory experience, allowing guests to explore and enjoy the South End like a local. This 3 hour tour is packed with food and fun! All food tastings are included in the ticket price and add up to enough for a satisfying lunch by the end of the tour. This tour is suitable for a variety of ages and fitness levels.

Charismatic guide Elisa made this tour even more special. Delicious food and tour of Southend. Parish Cafe had great sandwiches and the bacon wrapped date and almond was yum yum from Orinoco Kitchen. Even though it was raining we had great fun.

On a beautiful October afternoon, we were guided through both a culinary and historical tour of the South end of Boston. The explanation of both the area and the local history were informative and enjoyable. There was an excellent balance between sampling the food offerings and the explanation of the history and architecture of the area. We definitely would recommend... More

We have been on a number of food tours and this one is in our top three! The South End of Boston has so much history and such great food! This tour was an awesome mix of both. Our next trip to Boston will definitely included a Bites of Boston Tour.

If you like walking, learning some history and sampling some local cuisine, you would find this tour enjoyable. By going on this tour we got to see some areas of Boston that we didn't even know existed. So many of the restaurants in the South End of Boston have great stories of passion, taking chances and doing something you love... More

Thank you for your lovely review - we are quite fond of the "following your passion" theme shared by many of the chefs in the South End as well. It is a great neighborhood to discover and we are happy to have had the chance to show it to you! More

Tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgable about South End. Would rather the tour focus solely on history of South End food rather than historical bits and pieces. Disappointed in the amount of food. Not a huge eater by any means but one quartere of a sandwich, one teeny tiny bacon covered date, a day old cookie, two pieces of... More

Thank you for your review and nice words about your guide. Our tour is a walking food AND neighborhood tour. The historical "bits and pieces" include cultural, architectural and historical stories relevant to the South End's past and present. This is a focus of the tour above and beyond the food and is both accurately described on our website and... More

We very much enjoyed walking around & getting to know many details about the South End. The tour director (who is also the owner of Bites of Boston) was fully informed & relayed everything in an easy to understand manner. We have lived part time in Boston for many years but were not aware of many of the things we... More

My wife and I booked this tour on the advice of her sister who had taken it last year. It was a great idea. It is a great mix of history, architecture and food. Alyssa is extremely knowledgeable about the local food scene, chefs and trends. Well worth the $30 for the time and food, would do it again and... More

Our guide Alyssa was bright, cheerful and extremely knowledgeable. We visited 6 restaurants / specialist shops and walked around the streets of the South End. The food was varied and tasty, ranging from meatloaf sandwich to the most delicious cookie from the Flour Bakery. The surprising and really interesting information about the history and architecture of the local area was... More
