Anthony was great! Got the back story on many places we've gone to over the years and learned some new secret spots. Dinner at his mom's was icing on very tasty cake! Would highly recommend this tour.

Anthony’s tour was extremely informative and fun! We ate so much great food and had a truly authentic experience. Everyone should do themselves a favor, get out of their comfort zone and take this tour when their in Boston. Such an awesome day.

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
