This tour does everything right! A nice mix of eateries all within a great walking area. Lots of stops for interesting facts and tidbits of information about the area, the history as well as more current events. I highly recommend this tour. I especially liked that it was in the south end, an area we might not have otherwise visited on this trip to boston. I also love the details on this tour. We were all handed a map at the start so we knew exactly where and how we were getting to the next stop, The map also included information about each eatery (the name, the address, phone number, website, hours of operation and how to get there by public transit) a handy tool for revisiting these establishments on our own following the tour. And each food tasting location we visited is a place I would go back to. Great selection of food and an awesome tour guide.

The South End- with its rich history (very much a part of Boston's overall history) and its mish mash of cultures- provides the perfect back drop for a leisure Sunday! First the food: with 6 stops you get to experience everything from the classic fried clam to a Venezuelan style plantain wrapped in bacon dish! With just the right mix of sweet and savory and with each dish being just the right food-to-walking ratio, Alyssa (who was a great tour guide) kept us satiated and satisfied the whole way through! Now the history: Without providing many spoilers, you will discover some of Boston's crazier history (like where there is a mass grave downtown) to its modern history (why a place that use to be a series of islands became a very complete metropolitan city)!
Again, as aforementioned, the walking is not torturous at all and with ample scenic stops along the way, it keeps the experience intact!

Our tour guide, Alyssa, is a wealth of historical information! We were visiting Boston from Portland, OR and took the Sweet and Savory food tour on my husband's 40th birthday. It was a GREAT way to spend 3 hours! Alyssa even did something "extra special" to celebrate my husband's birthday, but I don't want to give away the surprise in case there are other birthday folks planning to take the tour. We walked through beautiful South End neighborhoods, learned unique facts about the area/homes/landscape, and stopped at 6 restaurants for a little sampling of their menus! We had a really nice time and couldn't believe all the information that Alyssa had to share....she is a fabulous tour guide that made our experience the best it could be. Book this tour and experience it for yourself! =)
