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

I believe you meet at 10:45am but the website will tell you. The tour length depends a bit on questions, etc., but three hours is a good bet. I'd plan to be done around 2pm.

Yes. Very relaxed pace. Lots of stops. Only two sit downs so you have to be able to stand for a fair time.
