My husband and I had so much fun on this tour. We have been on 3 other tours of the North End and this one is the best by far! Anthony knows his neighborhood better than anyone, tells great stories and gives insider tips and...More

A brilliant tour from "Flash". I was a bit worried about the politically incorrect part, but it turns out this is just Anthony speaking his mind and calling out BS as he sees it. There were a number of stops on the tour to sample...More

We had a great time with Anthony. Our son who is 20 enjoyed it just as much. Great information about how the neighborhood has changed. Food was good. I don’t think there is another tour out there that ends up at the tour guide’s mama’s...More

We're local residents, and frequent (and enthusiastic) visitors to the North End, but we learned more on this tour than we ever knew about this gem of Boston neighborhoods. Our guide (called 'Flash', for reasons you'll learn) eschewed the hackneyed tourist traps for the smaller...More

No way there are 4 better food tours. Anthony was terrific, food great, and finished at his Mom’s house for homemade pasta and cannolis. Caution, we finished at 2:30, so don’t make immediate plans because you don’t want to leave before finished.

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
