What a great experience. The pizza was to die for as was the cannoli! Tour guide was AWESOME & accommodating. We really appreciated the extra time he took to accommodate a deaf member of our group (something that other tour guides DID NOT do). I would give it 10 stars if I could!

I loved this tour! It was a perfect combination of history, humor, walking, and great pizza. Our guide was amazing - provided our group with great points of history along the walk, kept the walking pace comfortable (even for an older woman), and provided plenty of time to enjoy our 3 pizza stops along the way. I never felt rushed. I would definitely take this tour again and am looking forward to their seafood tour and tavern tour. This was such an enjoyable and worthwhile experience - I came away feeling my money and time were well-spent.

Martin did a great job showing us around the North End. Being able to blend the history with the current environment. The pace of the tour was perfect. The pizza we tried was amazing and we wished we would have done the tour earlier in our visit because of the recommendations of other eateries in the area. Well worth the time and money!!
