Last weekend we had friends visiting from out of town, so I searched for something fun and touristy in town. After an extensive search on various websites, we all decided a food tour with Boston history would be best. The day, time, cost, and mostly importantly, reviews all played a part in choosing a tour. And let me tell you, this Boston tour will FILL you up with fabulous food and history.
The tour that met all criteria seemed to give us the most bang for our bucks. And it delivered! We were fed like kings. We felt as if we were walking the streets with the Mayor, and learned a lot about an historic, and hugely popular area of Boston.
We decided on the North End Food Tour with host Bobby Agrippino. Bobby is a life long North End resident, with a vast knowledge of the area’s past and present. He loves to show pictures on his phone of family and friends. I won’t spoil it for you with details, but he has stories. The former restaurateur restauranteur is now a full-time tour guide and owner of his company North End Food Tour. Having a guide who’s actually lived in the area, and has seen it change dramatically was a real plus. He was completely entertaining, authentic and knowledgable. The walking wasn’t too much for anyone in our capacity group of 20. The tour takes you around a few streets in Boston’s historic North End.
Word of caution…come HUNGRY. There was so much food, I was asking for bags to take home a few items. I highly recommend, from personal expeierience this Boston Tour. It will fill you up with fabulous food and history!
