We took the North End city wine tour at 2 pm on a Saturday with Lisa. There were 10 in the group, a perfect size for chatting and mingling. The tour consisted of three stops including 2 restaurants and 1 wine store. We enjoyed 2 moderately priced ($25) wines at each stop for a total of 6 1-oz pours in... More

My friend and I had a great time with Monica, our guide, and the other guests as we all learned more about sparkling wines. Nubar and En Boca were terrific restaurants and the walk in between was perfectly timed. My friend and I decided a few years ago to give each other a shared experience for our Christmas gift instead... More

We visited 3 different locations starting @ 3pm on Saturday. Walking from one to the next. Our host John was one of the best we have had so far for any of our tours. He was very knowledgeable about the wine, wine making, the locations, and the neighborhood. He got our group to introduce ourselves and we were able to... More

Our very knowledgeable Tour guide Roz, a Wine expert, taught... More

I booked a Back Bay walking wine tour with City Tours. I was instructed to confirm my reservation 24 hrs in advance of the tour. When I called, the representative didn't confirm my name, said the confirmation wasn't necessary because the tour wasn't over-booked (beware of you're booking this tour). The tour was depart from Legal Seafoods, 100 Huntington Ave.... More

I went on the North End wine tour as a team outing for work. Joanna was our guide and she was AWESOME! I've been to man wine tasting, both locally and in the Napa/Sonoma valley area but this was the first one that really taught me a lot about wine. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience from beginning to end! Good... More

I went on the North End wine tour with a group of girlfriends. We had Fiona as our wine ambassador, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. The stops on the tour were perfect, and the food at the locations was delicious and more than what I was expecting! There was a couple celebrating their anniversary, and two other couples on...

We had a blast on the City Wine Tour of Boston's North End. Our guide was fun, informative and down to earth. If you know a little or a lot about wine, you can still learn on this two hour tour. Both the wine and the food were great!
