Thanks so much for trusting out tour..on your own! We are delighted that you enjoyed a rainy afternoon with us. Kind regards.
I live locally and have visited the North End many times and I still learned a ton on this tour. It's like an "insiders" tour of the North End. Our guide, Linda, was extremely knowledgeable having a background in the food industry and having traveled...More
We booked Michele’s tour as part of my birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband and I recently moved to the Boston area and the tour was a wonderful introduction to a fascinating part of the city.

Michele Topor's tour is better than the rest for two reasons: she not only knows Italian food but also nutrition and health and can wrap it all up in a fascinating dialogue. With years of touring experience she has developed great relationships with the merchants...More
Michele Topor knows health and all about how a Mediterranean diet contributes to it. She knows how to find top notch ingredients in the North End and will take you from appetizers to dessert and pastries and everything in between. So her tour, 3 hours...More
If you enjoy food history, this is the tour for you. Michele Topor’s tour is unique and she is very informed about Italian culture and food. This is NOT a sit-down, restaurant tasting tour. This is an on-the-go tasting tour where you learn about authentic...More
We looked at several different tours on line but ultimately we chose this tour partly because a friend had previously taken one of Michele's tours and partly because we wanted to be able to take some knowledge away from the tour that we could apply/use...More

I'm so happy that you enjoyed the "Little Italy" tour and our little surprise. We hope that you come back again and again to enjoy the neighborhood and all that you learned on the tour. And we also agree that Beth gives a wonderful tour!
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
and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
