Every summer, our department at work, chooses something fun to do as a group. This year, someone mentioned that the South End in Boston had a walking food tour, and we decided to give it a try. At the end of the 3 1/2 hour tour, I think everyone agreed it was a really great way to spend some time together. The six restaurants/establishments that we visited were diverse enough to make the afternoon interesting, and if someone didn't care for one tasting item, there was usually something at the next place that would be pleasing. Along with the food samplings, the tour guide gave a great historical rundown of many of the architectural highlights in the area. She was terrific.
My only suggestion would be getting the restaurants to offer more of the "real" food, and cut down on the sweets. We had small portions of anything that was of a savory nature, but whenever a dessert was offered, it was a full portion. All in all, though, I would enjoy doing it again.
